Deans Council

The Deans Council is the academic affairs group that advises the Provost on academic issues, faculty issues, and student issues, including enrollment planning; student success and student services; curricular issues; research issues, and the necessary resources (budgetary, capital and human) to accomplish academic affairs. This group is charged with generally fostering excellence in the academic programs of the university. It is composed of all academic deans (BCOE, CHASS, CNAS, GSOE, SOBA, SOM, SPP, Extension and Graduate Division) as well as the University Librarian and the Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development.

This Council meets bi-weekly and is chaired by the Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor. 

Ethics & Compliance Risk and Audit Controls (ECRAC) Committee

The UCR Ethics and Compliance Risk & Audit and Controls Committee provides campus oversight to the UC Ethics and Compliance Program and is advisory to the SVP/Chief Compliance and Audit Officer through the UC Ethics and Compliance Risk Council.  The Committee continues its current activities with respect to Audit and Controls responsibilities.

The Committee is co-chaired by the Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor and the Associate Vice Chancellor and Chief Compliance Officer (AVC & CCO),  meets at least quarterly, and maintains a quorum (defined as a majority of members present) for at least 90% of the scheduled meetings on an annual basis.

The Committee comprises senior campus leadership responsible for various areas of campus compliance risks, academic leadership, audits, controls and one or more members of the UC Office of Ethics, Compliance and Audit Services.  Committee members may not delegate their committee responsibilities, including their meeting attendance responsibility, to anyone.  The Committee is charged with the following, including but not limited to:

  • Responsibility and support for the overall Program as it relates to the campus, including implementation, performance metrics and ongoing campus processes of the Program
  • Encouraging an awareness of compliance and open lines of communication throughout the campus
  • Monitoring the effectiveness and consistency of compliance practices throughout the campus
