The Academic Council and the Executive Committee which it elects are the chief instruments of faculty governance at Duke University with each containing representatives from across the University and the School of Medicine. The Bylaws of the University invite the Faculty in general to organize themselves for discussion of matters of interest and to provide for representation of faculty opinion to the Administration and to the Trustees.
