Many of Brigham Young University–Hawaii ("BYU–Hawaii" or "university") affairs are carried out by the work of councils, boards, committees, and ad hoc committees. These administrative bodies have been created at BYU–Hawaii in order to help achieve the goals of the university, to facilitate the development of responsive academic programs, and to enhance communication and decision-making processes.
2.1 General Councils
All councils at BYU–Hawaii have general policy-making powers and responsibilities within established administrative areas. Policies drafted by councils, however, must be approved by the President’s Council. The President’s Council is the final campus authority and has power, in and of itself, to draft and enact university policy.
2.2 General Boards
Boards at BYU–Hawaii are commissioned by the President’s Council to review specific student requests and/or cases and render decisions. These review and decision-making bodies are extended the privilege of holding hearings, investigating problems, and doing other requisite work which has direct bearing upon student status and activities. Decisions made by designated boards are subject to appeal by the designated vice president or in some cases President’s Council before they become final.
