Executive Faculty Council

The Medical College has two faculty governance bodies as provided for in the University Bylaws. The Executive Faculty Council (EFC) consists of the University President, the Dean and Provost for Medical Affairs, the associate deans and department chairs of the Medical College, and such other persons as may be designated by the President from time to time.

Together with the GFC, the two Faculty Councils have the duty to determine the entrance requirements for students; to prescribe and define courses of study for them; to determine the requirements for such degrees as are offered to students; to recommend to the Overseers/President candidates for degrees who have fulfilled the requirements therefore; to enact and enforce rules for the guidance and supervision of students in their academic work; and in general to exercise jurisdiction over the academic interests of students and all other educational matters in the Medical College.

The Faculty Councils also are a key component in the flow of information between the faculty and the administration. Members of the two councils have the responsibility to bring information and concerns forward from their constituencies to the Councils, as well as to serve as an information resource on policy and procedural questions emanating from the administration through the Council review and approval process. In addition to the general review conducted by the full Council, each Council has from time to time established topic-specific committees to address key areas of concern to their membership.

The Faculty Councils may be reached through the Office of the Secretary by email to secretary@med.cornell.edu or by phone at 212-746-6010.
