Biographical history

The Policy and Planning Committee was formed in April, 1975 in order to combine the Academic Policy Committee (APC), the Services Policy Committee (SPC) and the Finance Policy Committee (FPC) into one entity. The new structure was a return to having a single General Faculty Council committee serve as the institutional planning committee, much as the Academic Planning Committee had done from 1966-1969 before being split into three separate bodies (the APC, SPC and FPC).

The Policy and Planning Committee (PPC) was responsible for developing recommendations on policies respecting institutional goals and plans and for developing the framework for determining and planning academic goals. The Committee was also charged with correlating this academic planning with financial and resource planning by developing operating and capital budgets and policies on resource allocation. The PPC was a standing committee of the General Faculties Council and reported, through the Executive, to the GFC at least bi-annually. Membership of the PPC included the VP Academic (Chairperson), VP Finance (Vice-Chair), VP Services, Associate VP Academic (Secretary), a representative of the Office of Institution Research, the Chairperson of the University Budget Committee, one board appointee from each of the Faculties, one Board appointee from the University College, one member from the Board of Governors, the President of the Students' Union and the the President of the Graduate Students' Association.

The final meeting of the PPC was held in November, 1980 following a recommendation from the University Program Review Committee (UPRC), a presidentially appointed committee that reviewed the status of the University committees' organizational structure. In the URPC's report, "The Shrinking Maze", it was stated that the PPC, in its attempts to be fully representative, had become too large to deal effectively with priority determination and continuous reviews. As a result, the PPC was replaced by the Institutional Policy and Priorities Committee in 1981.
