The Undergraduate Council is a university-wide committee that participates in the shared governance process at the University of Arizona. The Undergraduate Council reviews all undergraduate curricular action items forwarded from its two subcommittees, the Academic Programs Subcommittee and the Curriculum & Policies Subcommittee.

Action items may be received from academic units, colleges, auxiliary units, the Office of Academic Affairs, the University-wide General Education Committee, any General Faculty Standing Committee or Senate Standing Committee or ad hoc committee. Action items requiring Faculty Senate approval are forwarded by the Undergraduate Council to the College Academic Administrators Council and Team Provost for review prior to being sent to the Faculty Senate for final approval.

Representation is still pending from some areas. The names and colleges are in red below.
