Department Chairs Cabinet

Recognizing that the roles and responsibilities of the academic department Chair are among the most complex within the institution, Iowa State established the Department Chairs Council, comprised of all current department Chairs, to provide for communication between the department Chairs as a group and the administration, faculty, staff and students of Iowa State University. To facilitate communication, the Council elects a Cabinet  which consists of one Chair from each of the colleges and four at-large Chairs. The Senior Vice President and Provost and the Faculty Senate President sit on the committee as ex-officio non-voting members. The cabinet meets monthly to discuss and establish positions on matters of University concern with particular implications for academic departments and programs.
