Administrative history

The President is the chief executive officer of the University and the Vice-Chancellor. The Board of Governors appoints the President and prescribes his tenure of office. The President has the general supervision over and direction of the operation of the University, including its academic work, the instructional and ancillary staff (including the deans of the faculties, the registrar and the librarians), and its business affairs. The Board has the authority to assign any other powers, duties and functions to the President for the welfare of the University. The President may delegate any of his powers, duties or functions as he sees fit and prescribe conditions governing the exercise of any delegated power, duty or function, including the power of subdelegation. The President reports annually to the Board and the Senate on the academic work of the University and its progress and requirements, and makes any recommendations thereon he considers necessary (Alberta. Universities Act, RSA 1980).

The office of the President is organized hierarchically with the President and Vice Chancellor at the top, followed by the Chief of Staff, University Secretary, and General Counsel. The Chief of Staff oversees the Director of Office of the Senate and Director. The Director manages the Information Coordinator, Events and Projects Specialist, and the Senior Executive Coordinator.

The President is appointed by the Board of Governors and broadly: provides the university with strategic leadership; oversees the university's operational and change management processes; represents and upholds academic credibility; and leads the university's external relations locally, nationally, and internationally.
