The University Secretariat is responsible for the effective and efficient operation of the University’s bicameral system of governance.
It administers the governance of the University by providing consistent advisory and administrative support to the Board of Governors (oversight of all operational aspects), the Senate (oversight of academic matters), their Standing Committees and a number of ad hoc committees.
The University Secretariat also is responsible for the provision of:
- timely, accurate, and objective advice, interpretation, and implementation of Board and Senate bylaws, policies and procedures
- advice and guidance in the development of bylaws, policies, program and academic regulations
- advice and guidance on matters of jurisdiction, strategy, policy and process to all members of the University community
The Secretariat is also the repository of information on all matters relating to the governing bodies and is responsible for the e-publication of the University’s Undergraduate and Graduate Calendars.
