(formerly known as Committees)Following changes to the Cornell University Council constitution and bylaws in May 2013, the groups formerly known as Council committees have reorganized as Council Interest Groups.
Council Interest Groups are primarily informational in nature. As with the committees in the past, each group represents a campus department or unit and convenes a session at the Trustee-Council Annual Meeting to provide an opportunity for attendees to become more informed about, participate in, and offer feedback to a particular area of the university.
A Council Interest Group may reach out to Council members to serve as a resource or assist with additional initiatives throughout the year.
