The Council meets monthly through the school year and is responsible for establishing curriculum policies for the university upon the recommendations of College Curriculum Committees, the Graduate Council, the Rules, General Education and Academic Requirement committees. Its goals include:

1. To recommend to the University Administration and the Board of Regents academic policies pertaining to the curriculum and scholastic regulations.

2. To review all proposals relative to the curriculum of the university forwarded to it by duly established college and university-wide curriculum committees.

3. To initiate studies and policies pertaining to the curriculum, scholastic regulations, or other matters referred to the Council by the President, the Vice-President for Academic Affairs, or the Council of Academic Deans.

4. To refer to the duly constituted academic committees, the Council of Academic Deans, or to special sub-committees of the Council assignments relative to academic affairs within the purview of Council authority.

5. To recommend the addition of new majors, minors or degree programs at the undergraduate or graduate levels to the President and to the Board of Regents for approval.

In 1970 the SGA president and vice president were added to the council. Participation was increased to nine in 1972. These included the second SGA vice president and six representatives from the colleges.
