  • establish policies regarding academic matters
  • establish committees for the conduct of council business
  • advise the Dean on academic matters
  • approve and regulate standards of admissions
  • approve new or changes to the existing academic programs and units

Please note:

With the pandemic-imposed shift to working remotely, in March 2020, OISE Council meetings shifted to an online format, which has had a positive impact on attendance and engagement given the increased accessibility of virtual meetings.

For the 2022-2023 academic year, OISE’s senior leadership decided to maintain the virtual format for governance meetings to support the diversity of faculty, students, and staff who serve on OISE Council and its Committees.

To ensure a positive experience for all members and guests, please review and observe the Participation Guidelines for Virtual Meetings of OISE Council.
