Arts & Science Council Meetings

The Arts & Science Council considers and approves policy for the Faculty of Arts & Science. It approves policy for the Faculty in areas such as admissions and curriculum development. It specifies regulations governing evaluation and standing. The Council determines the schedule of dates and general nature of the timetable. It coordinates the work of the Curriculum Committees and approved courses of study and programs. The responsibility of the Arts & Science Council are not extended into areas that are, according to the University of Toronto Act, the responsibility of other bodies (e.g., budget, hiring, promotion, tenure).

This website will be updated with agendas and documentation one week ahead of a meeting of Council, with minutes from the previous meeting posted at the same time.
