The College is also host to several research centres and external bodies including the Refugee Documentation Centre, the Canadian Council for Social Development and the Research Programme in International and Strategic Studies. The College is administered by a Master assisted by a Senior Tutor and a Resident Tutor. Fellows of the College include University faculty members as well as representatives of business,government, politics and the arts. The College Council is an elected student body which provides social activities and administers student recreational services in the College.
