Administrative history

The first Provost was appointed in February 1984 by the Board of Governors. The responsibilities of the Provost relate to student affairs and York community services. Several student societies, groups and services report through the Provost' s Office including the Office of Student Affairs, the Counselling and Development Centre, the Colleges, and Athletics and Recreation. In addition, the Provost takes the lead in the areas of human rights (Status of Women, Race Relations, Students with Disabilities), and is responsible for an arts portfolio which includes the Art Gallery of York University. In 1990 the position of Provost became a part of the Vice President (Campus Relations and Student Affairs).

Administrative history

The Disciplinary Review Committee was struck in 1984 to consider the entire matter of non-academic discipline for university members, especially for those students who were not subject to college discipline. Its terms of reference were: to investigate those charged with responsibility for student discipline including College Masters, the President and the Office of the Provost; to establish a consistency of treatment and systematic appeal process across the varied jurisdictions in the University; and to make proposals for the establishment of a series of tribunals to appeal the decisions of disciplinary bodies and a University-wide code of non-academic conduct. While the Committee Minutes refer to it as the Disciplinary Review Committee, the final report refers to the body as 'Review Committee on Non-Academic Discipline'.
