The Faculty Council is the principle policy-making body of the Faculty of Administrative Studies and approves all of the academic regulations under which the faculty operates. All new courses offered by the faculty must first be approved by the Council. Its membership is made up of faculty members, including the Dean and Associate Deans, representatives of other faculties, and student representatives.
The Faculty Council meets monthly, from September to May, usually on the fourth Friday of the month. At the last meeting of the year the nominations committee nominates committee members for the forthcoming academic year and the Council elects a chairman and vice chairman. A secretary is also appointed. The Council' s work is often handled by several Standing Committees, including the Executive, Nominating, Student Affairs and Academic Programming committees.
The Executive Committee of the Faculty Council is charged with maintaining the activity of the council during the summer months. The Student Affairs Committee is charged with reviewing policy in relation to regulations concerning academic conduct, including appeals for changes in grades and applications by students for waiver of faculty regulations.
The Academic Programmes Committee has oversight of the curriculum of the faculty, and must approve any new course offerings, and changes in any prerequisites for courses.
