Dates of existence


This Committee was struck in 1976 as a joint body of Academic Council and the Board of Governors and was chaired by Board member, Peter Meincke. The Committee produced a report generally known as the Meincke Report (1976-1977) which established policies and procedures for academic appointments and made recommendations on basic questions of academic structure and the role and compensation of academic administrators. In January 1984, the Board of Governors independently set up a Review Committee of this Committee, chaired by Board member, Eric Wright, to create an appointment of Associate Vice-President Academic, as there were no terms of reference for such an appointment in the Meincke Report. The Review Committee was also requested to review the Meincke Report and make recommendations for any upgrading. A subsequent report was produced by the Review Committee (E. Wright Report) recommending three significant changes to the Meincke Report Part I. The Board of Governors approved adoption of Part I/Wright Report as Institute policy, superseding Part I/Meincke Report, at the June 25, l984 meeting. Part II/Wright Report was approved for adoption as Institute policy, superseding Part II/Meincke Report, at the September 23, l985 Board of Governors meeting.
