    Administrative history

    The office of the Dean of Students was created in 1976 to be the “Chief Administrator of the Office of Student Affairs” and Student Services. The Dean answers to the Vice-President (Academic). The University Act of 1910 vested disciplinary power to discipline students in the University Senate. This was delegated in 1912 to a Committee on Student Affairs, at which point the first position, “Advisor to Women Students,” was created. In 1914 the position of Provost under JM McEachren was created to discipline and regulate the “welfare of the student body.” Discipline was first handled through committees, then appealed to the Committee on Student Affairs. In 1938 the “Advisor to Women Students” assumed the title “Warden” of Pembina Hall, and in 1951 becomes the “Dean of Women.” The “Professor for Men in Residence” evolved in 1946 to become the Wardens of Athabasca and Assiniboia Halls. In 1947 an “Advisor to Student Veterans” was appointed, evolving into “Student Advisory Services” in 1950 and later still into “Student Counseling Services”. These positions were responsible to the Provost. Legislative changes in 1942 vested disciplinary powers in the Dean’s Council with the Committee on Student Affairs dealing with policy matters. Legislative changes in 1966 caused administrative changes leading to the appointment of the Provost to the head the Council on Student Affairs. A 1976 review of Student Affairs lead to the formation of the Council on Student Affairs. Additional positions were added renamed through the 1960’s such as “Administrator of Student Awards” (1959), “Advisor to Men Students” (1960), “Advisor to Foreign Students” (1960) and “Dean of Men” (1964). In 1966 residential “Wardens” were transformed into “Assistant Deans in Residence”. The 1976 Voss ad hoc “Committee on the Restructuring of the Office of Student Affairs” made major revisions to the administrative structure. Note that Student Health Services lies under the auspices of the Vice-President (Finance and Administration.)
