Faculty Governance

The Faculty of Arts & Science Council, together with its sub-committees, is responsible for Faculty policies in such areas as curriculum development, academic standards and admission policies.

All faculty, staff, students and members of the public are welcome to attend Arts & Science Council meetings, but only elected members can participate in debates and vote.

Here is how you can get involved:

Join Arts & Science Council

  • Faculty and staff can run for election to the Arts & Science Council
  • Graduate and undergraduate students can run for election to the Arts & Science Council, Standing and Curriculum committees

The Faculty holds elections for these positions each spring. Elections are announced via email, so please keep an eye on your inbox for details.

Vote in Council Elections

If an election is required, students, faculty and staff will receive an email instructing them how to vote online. The email will direct you to the A&S Council elections webpage, where a link to the voting site will be posted.

File a Motion

Anyone, including members of the public, may submit a motion for consideration by the A&S Council Agenda Committee. You must submit a motion to the secretary (Faculty Registrar Deborah Robinson) at least 10 days in advance of the meeting at which they are to be discussed.
