    Biographical/Historical Sketch

    The Academic Council was organized by the Stanford University faculty in 1904 and currently consists of members of the Professoriate and certain officers of the academic administration as specified by the Articles of Organization. The Council holds one regularly scheduled meeting annually. The Advisory Board of the Academic Council is composed of seven members of the rank of Professor and addresses issues of appointments, promotions, dismissals, creation of new departments, and other policy matters as presented to it by the University President.
    In 1968 the Academic Council created the Senate of the Academic Council, composed of representatives elected from the Council. The Senate meets monthly from October through June and is responsible for carrying out the functions of the Council. The Academic Secretary is responsible for communicating the decisions and actions of the Senate to every member of the Council.
