governance organization that meets monthly to deliberate on campus issues
and share information on University projects and progress. Council is advisory
to the President, and includes representatives of the Faculty Senate, two
student assemblies and three staff assemblies.
Council's agenda and formal reports, and some of its debate, appear
in Almanac. Meetings are open to observers who register their interest in

Much of the work of Council is done by its committees, listed on parts
II and III of this
four-part insert. They, and a set of Independent Committees listed
here are selected by the Steering Committee on recommendation of the

for nominations to these bodies. Their charges, and many of their past reports,
can be accessed through Almanac's web site, www.upenn.edu/almanac.
