University leadership is made up of the University president, provost, vice presidents, and the executive committee of the administrative council. This body meets monthly during the academic year to discuss the current affairs of the University and provide input to the president, provost, and vice presidents. The membership of the executive committee rotates every other year to widen the circle of participation and to bring in fresh options and ideas.
