Principals, Deans, Academic Directors, and Chairs (PDAD&C)

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).

The committee is convened by the Vice-President & Provost as a consultative and advisory body. PDAD&C discusses particular issues or developments as well as receives annual updates on topics ranging from the budget to human resources. The committee meets regularly during the academic year and also receives targeted communications via the Provost’s Weekly Digest.

2018-19 Meeting Dates


For the 2018-19 academic year, PDAD&C meetings will occur on the following dates from 10:10am to 12:00pm; please note that meetings will convene on St. George campus, with videoconferencing to UTM and UTSC as detailed below. Agendas will be sent directly to Committee members in advance of each meeting. Administrative staff in need of the agenda should contact their PDAD&C member.

Please note that only PDAD&C members and designated senior administrators are permitted to attend these meetings. Requests for permission to assign a designate to attend a particular meeting on behalf of a member should be sent to provost@utoronto.ca at least one week prior to the meeting.

All PDAD&C members automatically receive the Provost’s Weekly Digest each Friday, which includes all new memoranda. Assistants to PDAD&C members, as well as other administrative staff, faculty, and librarians are welcome to request subscription online.
