Dates of existence

[ 1963 ] -


The Office of Student Services was created to consolidate the duties of numerous and often overlapping offices and communities which over the University's history have concerned themselves with student affairs, whether academic, disciplinary, financial or personal. Responsible to the Vice- President (Student and Academic Services), the Dean of Student Services acts as the office's senior administrator. Under the jurisdiction of the Office of Student Services included the following agencies: Career and Placement Services, Disabled Student Services, Effective Writing Resources, International Centre, Native Student Services Centre, and University Health Services. The Dean of Student Services holds responsibilities similar to those of the former Provost, Dean of Men and Dean of Women, although, strictly speaking, not a direct successor to them. As chief administrator and coordinator of the Office of Student Services, the Dean of Student Services (known as the Dean of Students un till 1985) supervises the major student services divisions and acts as a liaison with University government through membership on the General Faculties Council, Dean's Council, the Senate, the Council of Student Services, and other communities relevant to students' concerns. The Dean is responsible to the Vice-President (Student and Academic Services).
