- ADMINISTRATIVE HISTORY
College Council is a monthly meeting of St. Jerome's University faculty, staff and representatives of the student body. It is a forum for the exchange of information about issues and events important to the life of St. Jerome's, and for discussion of its policies and procedures.
It began in 1963 as a monthly meeting of faculty to discuss academic and financial matters as well as relations with the University of Waterloo. In February, 1970, in addition to the faculty meetings, a President's Council was formed to serve as an advisory group to the President regarding academic, intramural and extramural program policies.
In May, 1971 plans were initiated to expand the President's Council. The result was the creation of College Council which held its inaugural meeting on September 23, 1971. The Council was given the mandate to make recommendations on any matter concerning the college as a whole to the President or to the Board of Governors through the President who would present those recommendations and report the outcome to the college. Initial membership on College Council included all full time faculty, the President, Dean, Head Librarian, 6 students selected by the Students'Council and 4 alumni elected by the alumni of the college. Membership changed over the years to include the President of the Student Union, the Treasurer, the Chaplain, the Director of the Centre for Catholic Experience and staff members.
Membership later changed to:
a) all regular full time faculty and regular full time staff;
