Dates of existence


The Executive Committee is the senior committee of Senate. It directs the flow of Senate business to appropriate committees, administers the process of nominating members to serve on Senate, and receives the reports of many of the other committees. Along with the Senate proper, the Executive has the power to create committees to deal with matters of general concern that are not the purview of any other Senate committee. The Committee acts as the Senate's liaison with the Board of Governors and must meet with its Executive Committee at least twice a year. The Executive also acts in the name of the Senate during the summer months. The Sub-Committee in Honorary Degrees and Ceremonials is attached to the Executive Committee.
