Council of Executive Officers and Discipline Cluster Groups

The Council of Executive Officers is composed of the Executive Officers, who administer the academic programs of The Graduate Center. The Council functions as an advisory body to the President and meets with the President and key members of the administration.

Subgroups of Executive Officers (Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences) also meet separately in discipline cluster groups. The meetings provide a forum for Executive Officers to discuss problems, to comment on current policies and practices, and to make suggestions.

Executive Officers may submit agenda items to the Executive Committee of the Council of Executive Officers. Contact the Provost's Office for further information.
