Recommended: That the list of non-voting Resource persons on the SCUP Subcommittee on Enrolment Planning and Policy (SUEPP) be revised as follows:
DELETE: Deputy Registrar
Manager, Admissions and Liaison Services
ADD: Manager, Applicant Services.
Recent reassignments of duties within the Registrar's Office have included the discontinuation of the position of Deputy Registrar. The proposed change to the composition of SUEPP also reflects a change in title of the Manager, Applicant Services.
Recommended: That the Terms of Reference and Composition of the University Library Council be revised as shown below:
Terms of Reference:
To advise the President & Vice-Chancellor, who shall bring to Senate, via the appropriate committee, those matters requiring Senate's attention.
To review and make recommendations on the
University library system and to formulate
current policy and long-range plans for the development of the
system , including physical facilities, acquisitions services , and priorities.
To report on its activities to Senate, as directed by Senate, but at least annually.
One representative from
Faculties of Health Sciences, Medicine & Dentistry, and Science elected by the Sciences Library
Faculty of Information and Media Studies appointed by the Dean
Faculty of Law appointed by the Dean
Faculty of Social Science elected by the Faculty Council
One undergraduate student, elected by the University Students' Council
One graduate student, elected by the Society of Graduate Students
President & Vice-Chancellor
Provost & Vice-President (Academic)
Dean, Faculty of Graduate Studies
Director of Libraries
Chair, The D.B. Weldon Users' Committee
Secretary of Senate (non-voting)
The Chair of each of the following Library Committees:
Faculty of Arts
Richard Ivey School of Business
Faculty of Education
Faculty of Engineering Science
Faculty of Music
D.B. Weldon Users' Committee
Council has not met for some time. As a result, changes were needed to update the Terms of Reference. The Composition has also been revised to reflect that the Sciences Library Committee has been replaced by the Taylor Library Committee, and the Council's recommendation that all faculties be represented on Council.
Currently membership terms run from November to November. Contingent on approval of this recommendation, current members terms would end June 30th, at which time Faculty Deans would be consulted regarding the appointment of new members or the reappointment of the current members for terms to run from July 1 to June 30. Terms for the faculty representatives would be for two years and staggered. Terms for student representatives would be one year.
Recommended: That the composition of the University Research Board be amended by adding: "One graduate student, elected by Senate."
Recommended: That the affiliated college representation on SCUP be revised from an elected position to an ex officio position. The wording, "one Principal of an Affiliated College (to be appointed on a rotating basis)", will remain the same.
The composition of the Senate Committee on University Planning (SCUP) includes, "one Principal of an Affiliated College (to be appointed on a rotating basis)". The rotational system in place is alphabetic, i.e., Principal of Brescia College followed by Huron College followed by King's College. Because the membership is an "elected" position, the name of the appropriate Principal is recommended to the Nominating Committee and added to the nominees for its report to the June meeting of Senate. The Principal is then elected for a three-year membership term to commence on July 1.
This recommendation is being made for two reasons: 1) there is no apparent advantage to having the appointed Principal elected by Senate, 2) having this position as ex officio will allow the appointed Principal to send an alternate Principal to the meetings which he or she cannot attend.
