Biographical history

The Deans' Council has been empowered by The Universities Act to advise the President regarding academic matters, to act as an executive body for the General Faculty Council, to authorize lecturing and teaching by others than staff members, and to exercise disciplinary jurisdiction with respect to students. It functions in an advisory capacity to the Board of Governors and the General Faculties Council as well as the President. In 1967 it consisted of the President and the deans of the different faculties, but by 1982 the Vice-Presidents, Associate Vice-President (Academic) and the Director of Libraries were also on the Council. Secretaries of the Dean's Council have been C.W.H. Linton, 1967-1968; Ian Adam (Acting Secretary), November 1968-February 1969; and W.F.M. Stewart, [1969]-1980. The Executive Assistant to the President now serves as Secretary to Deans' Council and to its Executive Committee.
