Governing Structure of the Faculty

The Faculty of Arts and Science Council

The Faculty of Arts and Science Council considers the future policy of the Faculty and reviews the action of its Standing Committees and sub-committees, chief of which is the General Committee. The Council consists of all professors, full-time lecturers, senior tutors and tutors appointed to departments of the Faculty of Arts and Science, together with the student members and ex-officio members of the General Committee.

General Committee

The General Committee is the major committee of the Faculty Council and is responsible for the formulation of policy for the Faculty of Arts and Science. Full details of its membership, and that of its Standing Committees, are in a brochure "Faculty Structure and Rules of Procedure", available at the Office of the Dean,

Elections to Faculty Committees

Students: A nominee may run for only one office (although elected members of the curriculum committees and the Committee on Study Elsewhere shall also be seated on the General Committee). Each student may vote for nominees from only one College in the elections to the General Committee. Each student may also vote for nominees to the Committee on Study Elsewhere. A full-time student may also vote for the eligible number of nominees to the respective Curriculum Committee, except that in the election for the Committee on Social Sciences, the representative for Commerce and Finance will be elected by students in that program; other full-time students will vote for three members. Part-time students may also vote for one nominee to any one of the curriculum committees.

Faculty: A nominee may run for only one office (although elected members of the curriculum committees shall also be seated on the General Committee). A Faculty member of Council may vote for nominees from only one division or from Erindale College in the election to the General Committee and for nominees to any one of the curriculum committees. Ex-officio members of the General Committee may not vote in these elections.

Nominations: Nominations to fill vacancies at the beginning of the winter session are made in the last half of September. Nominations may be made for the following academic year at the beginning of February. Nomination forms will be available from Departments, Registrars' Offices and from the Office of the Dean.
