Administrative Council

The Administrative Council works closely with the President’s Cabinet and the Faculty Strategic Planning Committee (SPC) to liaise with the campus at large to facilitate transparent communication and dialogue with staff about initiatives and decisions in support of the Institutional strategic plan. Members are appointed by the President and include representatives from all key administrative areas of the University.
