Big Ten announces COP/C committee

By Adam Rittenberg

Most Big Ten fans had little reason to pay attention to the league's Council of Presidents/Chancellors before December 2009.

But once the expansion process began, the COP/C entered the spotlight and has made several historic decisions in the past year and a half.

The Big Ten on Thursday announced its COP/C executive committee for the 2011-12 academic year.
The COP/C, which meets twice a year -- usually in June and December -- has the "ultimate authority and responsibility in Big Ten Conference governance," according to a news release. Each chair serves a two-year term.
