Each College at MSU is represented by one council member, except the Colleges of Letters and Science, Arts & Architecture, and Education & Health and Human Development who have two representatives each to better represent the dual disciplines in these colleges. Members must be tenured or tenure-track faculty. Each member has one vote. In addition to the college representation, there is one full-time graduate student, who is in good standing that represents the Graduate Student body. Ex Officio non-voting members include the Dean of the Graduate School, the Vice-Chair of the MSU Faculty Senate, and the Graduate Student representative.
