Biographical history

The Institutional Policy and Priorities Committee (IPPC) was formed in August, 1981 to replace the Policy and Planning Committee. The IPPC was an advisory committee reporting to the President and through him, to the Board of Governors and the General Faculties Council. The IPPC was responsible for making recommendations concerning policy and action respecting: priorities for academic development and the development of physical facilities; framework for financial policies within which The University Budget Committee (TUBC) could make further recommendations; the development of new academic programs; the development of new units (faculties, chairs, departments, centres or institutes); enrollment quotas; academic and support staffing; space management.

Membership in the IPPC consisted of the President (Chairman), Senior VP (Vice-Chair), the VPs of Academic, Finance, Research and Services, the President of the Students' Union, 4 faculty members appointed by the President and the Director of the Office of Institutional Research to act as a resource person. In 1986, membership was changed slightly with the addition of the Chairs of The University Budget Committee (TUBC), Curriculum and Academic Review Committee (CARC) and the University Research Policy Committee. The last meeting was held in June, 1989 when the IPPC was succeeded by the University Planning Committee (UPC).
