The Council will assist member institutions in developing integrated sustainable models of education whenever needed by offering technical advice and assistance, human resources, and external evaluation or assessment. Where required, partnerships with other like-minded institutions and linkages with government and non-government agencies will be facilitated. The Council may, or may not, be involved directly in implementing such programs.

These By-Laws may be amended by action of the Executive Board, to take effect upon ratification by a two-thirds majority vote of full members present and voting at any regular or special meeting. The proposed amendments must be circulated to members of the Council at least ninety days prior to the balloting date. Electronic mail ballots will be counted along with the ballots of members present.
