The University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA) is governed by a representative body from member institutions. UCEA policies are formulated by a nine-member executive committee. Executive Committee members are elected by UCEA plenary session representatives. The UCEA Plenum, which is composed of one representative from each of the member institutions, also establishes goals and priorities, reviews and approves organizational policies, and examines and approves the budget. Representatives to the plenary session serve as official liaison among the universities, the board, and the UCEA Executive Director. The Executive Director provides leadership and management for the organization. Under the leadership of the Executive Director, the UCEA central office implements the policies of the executive committee, develops initiatives and programs to achieve organizational goals, coordinates activities, and disseminates information resulting from research and developmental projects.
Financial support for the UCEA comes from the annual fees paid by member universities, publications, and contributions made by its host institution, individual universities, foundations, and governmental agencies for specific programs and projects.
The UCEA Plenum is composed of one representative from each of the member institutions. The Plenum establishes goals and priorities, reviews and approves organizational policies, and examines and approves the budget.
UCEA Plenary Representatives are either elected or appointed by faculty members and/or their Department Chair or Dean and serve for a term of 3-6 years renewable.
