About the Secretariat

Any member of the University community is welcome to engage the Secretariat on matters within its mandate.

The core functions of the Secretariat are:

  • secretariat support for the Board of Governors and its committees, Senate and its committees and councils, and a number of university-wide committees
  • preservation of corporate memory with respect to Board, Senate and executive decision-making
  • freedom of information and protection of privacy
  • management of the internal audit function at the university
  • supervision of the process of policy development and renewal
  • coordination of the risk management program at the university

The Secretariat offers assistance where it can, which sometimes includes redirecting inquiries to other University offices better placed to provide guidance, or which can provide additional guidance complementing the Secretariat's advice.
