The Research Advisory Council (RAC) provides an interdisciplinary forum for discussion of ideas and issues related to research. RAC advocates for research activity within the context of the university. RAC provides an opportunity for research-oriented faculty members at UFV to come together to discuss topics related to research, to support research-based initiatives, and to stimulate discussion and profile research activity at UFV. RAC will provide advice and support to the AVP of Research, Engagement & Graduate Studies and other UFV decision-making bodies such as the Senate Standing Committee for Research.

Every second year at its regular May meeting, the RAC will elect a chair and a vice-chair from its membership. The selection of the chair and vice-chair may be deferred at the request of RAC to September. In the event of an election, voting may occur by ballot.
The chair (or designate) is a member of the Senate Research Committee ex-officio. The chair is responsible for liaison with the Research Office. In his/her absence, the vice-chair will provide a liaison or attend meetings.
The Council shall hold meetings in September, November, January, March and May each year. The Council may also meet at the call of the chair, or at the request of the AVP Research, Engagement, & Graduate Studies or the chair of the Senate Research Committee. In the event that a vote must be taken on specific recommendations made to the AVP or other UFV decision-making body, a quorum shall be 50% plus one of voting members.
All meetings of the Council are open to all UFV faculty, staff, and students wishing to attend.
A summary record of the proceedings and recommendations of the Council will be produced and circulated by the Research Office Assistant.
