The council of the university of Babylon was founded with the university itself in 1991. It has become a division according to the ministerial order NO. 33564. The council is one of the presidency formations and it is connected with the chancellor of the university administratively and technically. Council is the University's executive governing body. It is responsible, under the Statutes, for “the advancement of the University's objects, for its administration, and for the management of its finances and property” and has “all the powers necessary for it to discharge those responsibilities”. Council is therefore responsible for the academic policy and strategic direction of the University, including its relations with colleges and external relations. All decisions concerning the University are made by Council or by any other body or person to whom Council delegates such decision-making powers, always subject to the powers of Congregation. Furthermore, Council is responsible for meeting the conditions of the Financial Memorandum between the Funding Council and the University. Council is required, amongst other things, to take reasonable steps to ensure that there are appropriate financial and management controls in place to safeguard public funds and funds from other sources, and to safeguard the assets of the University and prevent and detect fraud and other irregularities.

The principal business of the Council is to settle the annual budget, the Strategic Plan and other plans, to take major strategic decisions, to receive and decide upon reports from its committees and operations and to propose amendments to Statutes and Regulations.
