Notice biographique

The University's structure (established by The Universities Act of 1966) is multicameral (ie. checks and balances with authority diffused throughout the system). The two main chambers are the Board of Governors and the General Faculties Council. The Board of Governors is the corporate body of the University and is responsible for the property of the University and its financial affairs. It appoints officers and employees of the University, establishes salary scales, appoints the President, and gives final approval to the operating and capital budgets of the University. It consists of the chairperson, Chancellor, President of the University and other persons appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. For example, in 1966 there were eleven other persons, two of which were alumni association members, one senate member, two academic staff members.
