Principals & Deans (P&D)

The Principals & Deans Committee (P&D) consists of Principals, Deans, Vice-Presidents, Vice-Provosts, and the President. Academic Administrators who have been appointed under the Policy on Appointment of Academic Administrators, as well as certain other senior administrators, are members of the Principals, Deans, Academic Directors, and Chairs Committee (PDAD&C).

Both committees are convened by the Vice-President & Provost as consultative and advisory bodies. The committees discuss particular issues or developments as well as receive annual updates on topics ranging from the budget to human resources. Both committees meet regularly during the academic year and also receive targeted communications via the Provost’s Weekly Digest.

The agendas will be sent directly to all P&D members the Tuesday prior to each meeting. Please mark these dates in your calendar. Due to the size of the meeting, there will be no calendar invite.
