Academic Council at University Canada West is evolving to include more participation from students, faculty and staff.
Academic Council is the senior academic body of the University. Among other things, it advises on University academic standards, academic policies, program approvals and reviews.
The changes include the creation of new committees and the assumption of ongoing quality assurance responsibilities for our academic programs. These changes will improve Academic Council’s ability to support the priorities and operations of the University, and will result in a stronger and more resilient institution.
Academic Council’s Bylaws were recently updated to reflect these changes and to prepare for upcoming elections.
Academic Council has several open positions for representation from UCW community groups: students, faculty and staff. The elections for these positions are organized according to Academic Council Bylaws (in particular Appendix A: Rules to Govern Elections to the Academic Council).
