President’s Update to the Board of Governors
June 27, 2011
Thank you – The 2010-11 academic year has featured significant development and achievement,
and I would like to thank the members of the Board for exceptional dedication and insight in
continuing to advance Ryerson as a strong and distinctive university with a sustained mission.
Special thanks and very best wishes are extended to departing Board members: Xavier Fernando,
Charmaine Hack, Naeem Hassen, George Phu, Darius Sookram, and Jason Wong.
Spring 2011 Convocation – I am proud to thank everyone who played a role in making all of
the activities associated with Convocation such a wonderful success. The leadership of our
honorary doctorate recipients in First Nations, energy, theatre, the judiciary, public policy, and so
much more truly inspired our graduates and invested our ceremonies with depth and significance.
I extend special thanks to our nominators, and the Senate Awards and Ceremonials Committee.
The work for Convocation takes place all year long, and is recognized and greatly appreciated.
Congratulations –
• Phyllis Yaffe, Chair of the Board of Governors, received an honorary degree from Mount
Saint Vincent University in Halifax, N.S. on May 19th
• Dr. Alan Shepard has been appointed to a second term as Provost and Vice-President
Academic, to June 30, 2017
• Dr. Wendy Cukier, Associate Dean Academic, Ted Rogers School of Management, has been
appointed Vice-President, Research and Innovation effective September 1, 2011
• Adam Kahan, Vice-President University Advancement, has been elected to the Board of the
Canadian Club of Toronto
• Ruth Abbott is joining Ryerson University on July 4th as Assistant Vice-President,
Marketing and Communications
Eaton Garden – On May 24th we welcomed Chancellor Emeritus John Craig Eaton and Sally
Horsfall Eaton to campus for the rededication of the John Craig Eaton Garden, created in 2006 at
the end of the Chancellor’s seven-year term. We were proud to unveil an inukshuk marker by
Inuit artist Mary Adla, celebrating its traditional meaning: "You are on the right path."
Federal budget – The federal budget delivered on June 6th maintained the commitments made
for postsecondary education in the proposed March budget. Particularly notable for Ryerson,
given the Digital Media Zone and the Centre for Urban Energy, are initiatives promoting the
digital economy and advancing the government's India engagement strategy. The budget
includes $100 million over two years for energy research, and the announcement of $12 million
over five years for a competition to select a Canada-India Research Centre of Excellence.
Anna University, India – Planning is proceeding well on our partnership with Anna University
in Chennai, India to work together on twinning the Ryerson Centre for Urban Energy with a
centre to be developed collaboratively in India. We anticipate signing a formal contract soon, and
I will be visiting Chennai this summer as an expression of strong support for our cooperative
strategies and an opportunity to discuss the project further.

President's National Entrance Scholarships – I had the pleasure of calling all six recipients of
the President's National Entrance Scholarships to advise them they have been selected, and to
welcome them to Ryerson. The same as last year, I learned that several students accepted our
offer before learning about the scholarship, committed to Ryerson as their destination of choice.
Each scholarship is valued at $40,000, renewable at $10,000 per year with a CGPA of 3.67.
These scholarships are awarded to current Canadian secondary school graduates who demonstrate
academic accomplishment (minimum 90% average), leadership qualities, original thought and
creative ability. The 2011 President's National Entrance Scholarship recipients are:
Madison Stoner

Ryerson Faculty Association Retirees – On May 31st it was a privilege to host a dinner for
RFA retirees. This was the ‘first annual’ occasion celebrating our faculty retirees, and I was
pleased to hear from a number of people that it was very enjoyable and much appreciated.
25-Year Club – On May 10th the university celebrated the 22 employees inducted into the
Ryerson 25-Year Club this year. Together, they have witnessed tremendous changes during their
careers, and called to mind a time before the Internet, when students used the card catalogue and
electric typewriters; when cell phones were the size of bricks; and when there was a parking lot
where the Rogers Communications Centre now stands. This wonderful event offers an
opportunity to invite employees present and past to reminisce and reconnect, and to receive our
thanks for the foundation we are building on today.
Community Spaces –
• Student Learning Centre – In its June 2011 issue, Toronto Life magazine includes the
“spectacular" Student Learning Centre as one of its 50 reasons to love Toronto.
• Maple Leaf Gardens – In the Summer 2011 issue of the Ryerson Magazine, my column
extends an invitation to alumni and their families to watch for news of the MLG opening this
coming year [http://www.ryerson.ca/alumni/magazine/stories/president/index.html]. I look
forward to finding many more opportunities to encourage the community to play a part.
• Gould Street – New ideas for Gould Street continue to take shape:
(a) Farmer’s Market – Ryerson is working with Farmers' Markets Ontario to provide a
quality experience on Tuesdays from June until October, with eleven farmers selling
fruits and vegetables, cheese, baked goods, flowers, honey, maple syrup, meats and more;
(b) Rye’s HomeGrown Community Garden – A group of students, with the support of faculty
and staff, is transplanting vegetables currently growing in the Ryerson Greenhouse to a
fresh food garden in the raised bed on Gould Street across from the Student Centre;
(c) Bixi Toronto - Community members, politicians and cycling fans gathered on Gould
Street May 3rd to celebrate the launch of the bike-sharing service in the city, with one of
the Bixi stations located on campus.
(d) Evaluation Survey – The City of Toronto is undertaking a survey of the Gould Street pilot
project, including questions on frequency and type of use, comments on university Gould
Street activities, and asking whether the closure should be made permanent. The survey is
posted on the June 15th Ryerson Today web page.

SUMMARY:
Currently, Ryerson has 840 residence spaces for its students. Over the past decade, Ryerson’s
enrolment has increased substantially and there has been a change in the types of students
applying to the University. At this time, it is necessary to consider the appropriate number of
residence spaces for the University.
BACKGROUND:
Over the summer, a ten-year plan for Ryerson’s student housing will be drafted, and an
approach to housing will be developed for the Board to consider. As we consider the
appropriate number of student residence spaces for Ryerson, we will take into account a number
of factors, including:
•
•
•
•
Changing characteristics of Ryerson students, including increased entering averages
The impact of residence on the student experience
Student demand for housing
Availability of student housing at other Toronto institutions
COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGY:
No action required; presented for the Board’s information. A communications strategy will be
developed once a comprehensive housing plan has been drafted for the Board’s consideration.

1. From an accounting point of view, Ryerson had additional pension expenses of $13.0
million. This represents the difference between the total expense incurred and actual
contributions to the plan during the year. As the Board has heard, the Employee
Relations and Pensions Committee (ERPC) is looking into ways of addressing the deficit
in the pension plan, through negotiating an increase to contributions by the employees
and the University at the joint pension committee.
2. An unrealized loss of $9.9 million on the two interest rate swaps (TD & BMO) due a drop
in interest rates. This is similar to breakage costs and would only become due if Ryerson
decided to unwind the SWAPs.

On June 7, 2011 the Ryerson University Senate passed a motion approving the establishment of
a Faculty of Science, pending approval by the Board of Governors.
This historic development was endorsed with enthusiasm and great confidence, as a reflection
of the continuing momentum and development of our university.
In accordance with Section 10 (c) of the Ryerson University Act, 1977 (amended) the Senate
decision is subject to approval by the Board of Governors in respect of the expenditure of funds.
The summary outlines:
•
the timeline reflecting the detailed and intensive process grounded in the Academic Plan
and undertaken by the Provost’s Academic Structures Commission, and the Provost’s
Committee on the Feasibility of a Faculty of Science at Ryerson University, led by Dean
Emeritus Maurice Yeates;
•
the rationale for the new Faculty, including the grass roots initiative by the science
teaching and research faculty, and the support of the university community; and the
strength of existing and planned enrolment;
•
the financial factors, including incremental expenditures, a preliminary staffing model,
observations on space, and expected prospects for increased research funding by
having a more visible and proactive academic entity;
•
strategic alignment with the Ryerson mission as discussed with the Board this year –
advancing our ‘traditional’ profile as an integral part of building our ‘distinctive’ academic
and career paths – and potential for government support.
COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGY:
The establishment of a Faculty of Science would be announced on the University website and
through additional communications developed by the Office of University Advancement.

Proposal for a Faculty of Science at Ryerson University
Summary
June 15, 2011
TIMELINE
June 2008: Provost and Vice-President Academic releases Shaping Our Future:
Academic Plan for 2008 to 2013, including a reference to the possibility of
establishing a Faculty of Science, and introducing “Strategy 16: A report on the
academic structure of the University will be developed by the Provost through a
consultative process.”
May 2009: Provost’s Academic Structures Commission (PASC) established, with 25
members representing Faculties, graduate and undergraduate students, and alumni.
January 29, 2010: PASC presents Academic Restructuring at Ryerson University: White
Paper in which “the Commission endorses the request for the establishment of a
Faculty of Science at Ryerson University… involving Chemistry & Biology, Physics,
Computer Science, and Mathematics.”
July 7, 2010: Provost’s Committee on the Feasibility of a Faculty of Science at Ryerson
University established, with 9 members representing aspects of science and
engineering (academic, administrative, student affairs, and faculty affairs).
April 27, 2011: Provost’s Committee presents The Feasibility of a Faculty of Science at
Ryerson University, concluding “The establishment of a Faculty of Science at
Ryerson is feasible…The Committee therefore recommends that a Faculty of
Science be established at Ryerson University.”
June 7, 2011: Ryerson University Senate approves the following motion – “That Senate
approve the establishment of a Faculty of Science, pending approval by the Board of
Governors, hiring a Dean of the Faculty of Science by July 1, 2012, and the initial
establishment of the Faculty by Fall 2012.”
RATIONALE
“A powerful case can be made for a Faculty of Science at Ryerson because in truth
it already exists…The founding Departments - Mathematics, Computer Science,
Physics, and Chemistry & Biology – are well established at the University. They each
have academic programs at the undergraduate level that are well interlinked with each
other. The programs at the masters and doctoral levels are well subscribed and
emphasize research. The Departments have already established themselves as funded
engines of research and innovation, and are well positioned to strengthen these foci in
the future. Furthermore, a distinct Faculty of Science would be an asset to the institution
1
Board of Governors Meeting
June 27, 2011, Page 64
given Ryerson’s objective to be recognized as a comprehensive university. In sum,
Ryerson’s Faculty of Science would be a leading driver of science education, research
and development in the country.” (The Feasibility of a Faculty of Science at Ryerson
University, p.18)
Grass Roots
“The impetus for a Faculty of Science arises from faculty members in the science
areas. It is a grass-roots movement with which the rest of the University is sympathetic.
In general, faculty members, staff, and students in the disciplines involved feel they
need to be in a Faculty that has as its raison d’être care of science, and the need to
provide a higher profile for science at Ryerson and beyond the University.”
(The Feasibility of a Faculty of Science at Ryerson University, p.11)
“The Faculty of Science Feasibility Committee has submitted its final report to me and
to Mohamed Lachemi, dean, Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Science (FEAS).
Accompanying the report are endorsements from the departments of Chemistry and
Biology, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics expressing their support for the
committee's recommendation that a Faculty of Science be established at Ryerson.”
(“Faculty of Science Feasibility Committee submits final report,” Ryerson Today, May 11, 2011)
The science departments that will constitute the new Faculty of Science are currently
housed in the Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Science. The proposed
restructuring is represented below.
Faculty of Science
4 departments
74 RFA faculty members
1,353 FTE undergraduates

Three new PhD programs are beginning in September 2011:
• Molecular Science
• Computer Science
• Biomedical Physics
Of particular note is that science departments within the current Faculty of Engineering,
Architecture and Science provide service teaching for engineering and architectural
science curricula, and there is explicit agreement that this service teaching will continue.
In The Feasibility of a Faculty of Science at Ryerson University report it was suggested
that a ‘Joint Engineering/Science Review Committee’ be created to meet at least once
per term to review and address any developing concerns in this regard. In its motion to
Senate, the Academic Governance and Policy Committee (AGPC) endorsed the
establishment of such a committee during the implementation process.
FINANCIAL FACTORS
The Faculty of Science proposal would be implemented over three years, recognizing
the time required to conduct a search for a new Dean, and to allow for an effective
transition.
The current Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Science has the administrative and
3
Board of Governors Meeting
June 27, 2011, Page 66
financial resources to support all current programs and service teaching related to its
teaching departments. There is a strong commitment to cooperation and coordination in
assessing and undertaking the division of resources between the two Faculties.
Incremental Expenditures
In the 2011-12 budget approved by the Board, a strategic allocation of $500,000 has
already been set aside for implementation of a Faculty of Science in anticipation of this
proposal. The Table below identifies the estimated incremental resources associated
with the Faculty of Science, and the phase-in to a steady-state in 2013-14.

Notes:
(a) Incremental expenditures are those beyond the budgets within the current Faculty of
Engineering, Architecture and Science from which a proportion will be transferred to the
new Faculty of Science.
(b) Given the motion passed by Senate to have a Dean in place by July 2012 and the
Faculty operating in Fall 2012, the figures for ‘Year 0’ represent estimates for phase-in
costs, followed by projections for Year A and Year B.
Staffing Model
The report of the Provost’s Committee on the Feasibility of a Faculty of Science at
Ryerson University suggested a possible administrative structure for the new Faculty.
The incremental costs associated with the Faculty of Science would involve three
offices: the Dean’s Office, Undergraduate Students and Programs Office, and Research
and Graduate Studies Office. A number of positions, and a proportion of non-salary
operating funds, would be transferred to the Faculty of Science from the current Faculty
of Engineering, Architecture and Science. Five additional positions are needed.
Space has been designated on campus to house the new people associated with the
new Dean’s office.
Prospects
It is important to recognize that discussion of the financial aspects of a new Faculty of
Science must not be limited to expenditures. As the following excerpts from The
Feasibility of a Faculty of Science at Ryerson University indicate, there is strong
agreement on the potential for increased funding and competitiveness associated with:

(a) an academic structure that is more clearly understood by funding agencies, and
(b) the attendant ‘powerful voice for science’ represented by the new position of Dean:
“The recognition of the need for greater clarity concerning what the University does, and
whether this affected external research funding, arose frequently during discussions
leading up to Shaping our Future, and the PASC White Paper...agencies of various
kinds (public and private) prefer being associated with institutions that are demonstrably
serious about the research in which they have an interest in funding…The external
environment might be saying ‘show us what you do.’” (p. 13)
“The Dean has direct responsibility for: engaging faculty; assuring a positive, highquality working environment; convening strategic intellectual discussions about future
academic directions; assisting the Office of University Advancement in raising private
funds for scholarships, endowed chairs, programs, facilities, and other needs; playing a
key oversight role in program review and other processes that are important for
continuous improvement of Faculty activities; appointing effective chairs, directors, and
staff; and, assuring coordination of all components of the Faculty internally and with
university-wide services such as the Office of the VPRI. Perhaps even more important,
a Dean of Science needs to raise the profile of science by playing an active role
external to the University, both nationally and internationally.” (p. 14)
STRATEGIC ALIGNMENT
“The general ‘test’ question would be whether Faculty restructuring
leaves Ryerson as a whole better positioned to take advantage of a
variety of opportunities that may arise.” (Academic Restructuring at
Ryerson University: White Paper, p. 11)
The proposed establishment of a Faculty of Science answers this ‘test question’ with a
resounding ‘yes.’ In addition to the factors outlined in the sections above, the timing of
the proposal is responsive to strategic directions at Ryerson, and from government.
At the Board of Governors retreat on March 2, 2011 the agenda was dedicated to an
institutional strategy predicated on positioning Ryerson as a leader in Canada for
innovation and entrepreneurial education. Achieving this goal, which accords well with
the Ryerson mission and history, involves building strengths known and respected as
‘traditional’ in academic terms, at the same time as developing a ‘distinctive’ leadership
niche. The Faculty of Science has the potential to contribute to both of these objectives,
made more possible and visible by an expression of confidence in its singularity.
The release of Putting Students First, the Government of Ontario successor to Reaching
Higher, has the potential to be a game-changer for postsecondary funding. Government
has declared its intention to move from a system of per-student funding focused on
growth to a system that will provide operating and capital funding to institutions making
a case for their own strengths. A negotiated agreement with each institution will be
based on institutional goals, alignment with provincial priorities (“an innovative,

entrepreneurial and educated population that creates the businesses and jobs of the
future”), and indicators such as teaching quality, credit transfer, student satisfaction,
and attracting the best and brightest students and faculty from around the world.
The Faculty of Science at Ryerson University, newly named in a way that provides
instant recognition, and unveiled at a time when its attributes and success will have the
added effect of strategic impact, will help the university, as the test question says, to
take advantage of a variety of opportunities that may arise.

BACKGROUND:
Ryerson has been planning for long-term enrolment growth for a number of years, following the
Board’s decision that, given adequate resources, the University should accommodate a share of
projected student growth in the GTA. Academic units were asked to develop proposals for new
programs as well as increasing intakes in existing programs.
The three proposed undergraduate programs are the second, third and fourth to be presented to
the Board. They follow the Bachelor of Arts in English that was approved by the Board in
January 2011. Other programs will be brought forward as Ryerson’s plans to address GTA
enrolment growth continue to unfold.
COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGY:
Information on the approved programs will be posted on the Ryerson website and used in
recruitment literature.

Chair and Members
Finance Committee
Ryerson University
Dear Chair and Members:
Ryerson continues to expand program offerings in areas of academic strength, societal need
and student demand. Three undergraduate Bachelor of Arts programs are proposed for
implementation as early as September 2012: History, Environment and Urban Sustainability,
and Philosophy. These programs, along with the Bachelor of Arts in English that was
approved by the Board in January 2011, are an important part of Ryerson’s plan to help
respond to increased enrolment demand in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) over the next
several years.
Three and a half years ago, Ryerson began planning for long-term enrolment growth
following the Board’s decision that, given adequate resources, the University should
accommodate a share of projected student growth in the GTA. Academic units were asked
to develop proposals for new academic programs as well as increasing intakes in existing
programs. In addition to the programs proposed for Fall 2012, other new program proposals
are in various stages of development in each Faculty, with five having progressed to the
preliminary stages of the governance approval process (Status of Proposed Undergraduate
Programs table attached).
Student demand for the proposed programs in History, Environment and Urban
Sustainability, and Philosophy is expected to be strong and faculty resources are, for the
most part, already in place for a Fall 2012 start. The programs do not require additional space
beyond current renovation plans for the Faculty of Arts.
The proposed Bachelor of Arts in History will provide opportunities to explore significant
historical issues and ideas, and includes distinctive career-focused components. In addition
to foundational courses, students will undertake historian’s craft and seminar courses to
develop research, analytical and communications skills. Experiential learning opportunities,
including field work, theses, senior seminars and historian’s craft courses will provide
graduates with the analytical and communications skills needed for transition to employment.
Board of Governors Meeting
June 27, 2011, Page 73
Page 2 of 2
The proposed Bachelor of Arts in Environment and Urban Sustainability combines a
strong foundation in writing, research and geographical analysis skills with in-depth learning
about the relationship between urbanization and the environment. Students will undertake a
curriculum that is grounded in environmental analysis, and they will supplement their learning
in a range of courses offered by professional programs across the University, developing
specific areas of interest (e.g., policy, science, design, management) that will make them
attractive candidates in the job market. Optional internship placements will provide students
with up to two summers of work experience.
The proposed Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy will provide another option accessible to
students within the existing Faculty of Arts common platform. Concepts and approaches
from philosophy underlie many contemporary societal issues and can be applied to advance
their resolution. To provide a strong practical component, the program incorporates
distinctive applied, experiential and service learning features which culminate with students
enroling in at least one experiential capstone course in fourth-year that enables them to
integrate and synthesize their learning in a practical manner. For example, in the service
learning component of the Philosophy Engaging Communities capstone, students will engage
communities such as at-risk high school students, youth in shelters, or seniors. The
proposed Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy is being presented to begin in Fall 2012, at the
earliest, although it is likely to start in Fall 2013.
The proposed programs have undergone Ryerson’s internal process for academic quality
control and costing analysis at each stage of development, and have been approved by
Senate after review by the Academic Standards Committee. The University works to ensure
that between 30% and 50% of revenue will be available for indirect costs. Each of the
proposed programs set aside sufficient revenue for indirect costs, including funds for new
building financing and operating costs, as well as typical overhead costs for Student
Services, the Registrariat, and other administrative functions of the University.
As in the past, programs that have been approved by the Board will not be launched until I
determine that the necessary resources are available, and that there are sufficient student
applications to ensure highly-qualified students will be enroled in the programs.
Sincerely,
Alan Shepard
Provost and Vice President Academic

New Program Approval Summary for Board of Governors
Name of Program: History
Proposed starting date: September 2012
Degree: Bachelor of Arts
Proposed Tuition Fee (2012-13): $5,685.95 (2 terms maximum)
Brief program description:
•
The proposed Bachelor of Arts in History provides opportunities to explore significant historical issues and ideas,
and includes distinctive career-focused components. In addition to foundational courses, students will undertake
historian’s craft and seminar courses to develop research, analytical and communications skills.
•
To ensure a strong practical component, the program includes the option of heritage management courses for
students who are interested in pursuing careers related to museums and historic sites. Experiential learning
opportunities include field work and a thesis course.
•
Initial intake of 50 and planned steady-state enrolment of 155 annualized FFTE.
Evidence of societal need and student demand:
•
Because of their research, analytical and communications skills, Ryerson History graduates will be competitive
candidates for jobs in traditional and new media, cultural industries and other creative ventures. Graduates may
also seek careers in museums, archives and other heritage industries, as well as in cultural tourism. Government,
NGOs and other public service settings are also common destinations for History graduates.
•
The US Bureau of Labor has projected that historians will be hired in a wide range of sectors between 2006 and
2016: arts, entertainment and recreation; architectural, engineering and related services; management, scientific
and technical consulting services; and areas such as museums and historical sites.
•
History courses have long been popular at Ryerson, exceeding 4,200 registrations in 2010-11. High enrolment in
elective courses speaks to the popularity of current undergraduate programming and is a strong indicator of future
demand for the proposed History program.
•
Undergraduate History headcount enrolment in the province was 8% higher in 2009-10 than in 2003-04. In
2009-10, GTA institutions accounted for about a third of the 9,807 History students in the province.
•
With a significant increase in demand for university enrolment expected in the GTA, the proposed program will
serve as an attractive option for students.
Fit with Ryerson mission and resources:
•
In keeping with the Ryerson mission to offer programs that combine practical and theoretical elements, the
proposed History BA is distinct from other undergraduate History programs in terms of its strong focus on
experiential learning. Experiential learning opportunities, including field work, theses, senior seminars and
historian’s craft courses will provide graduates with the analytical and communications skills needed for
transition to employment.
•
All RFA faculty members in the Department of History have doctoral degrees, are highly experienced
researchers, and contribute to undergraduate teaching. Building on proven professional and professionally related
courses, the Department is ready to deliver the new program in a cost-effective manner with minimal change to
administrative structure.
•
The proposed program fits into the Faculty of Arts common platform, and many of the proposed courses are
already part of the History option within the existing Arts and Contemporary Studies (ACS) program.

New Program Approval Summary for Board of Governors
Name of Program: Environment and Urban
Sustainability
Proposed starting date: September 2012
Degree: Bachelor of Arts
Proposed Tuition Fee (2012-13): $5,685.95 (2 terms maximum)
Brief program description:
•
The proposed Bachelor of Arts in Environment and Urban Sustainability combines a strong foundation in writing,
research and geographical analysis skills with in-depth learning about the relationship between urbanization and
the environment.
•
Students will undertake a curriculum that is grounded in environmental analysis, and they will supplement their
learning in a range of courses offered by professional programs across the University, developing specific areas
of interest (e.g., policy, science, design, management) that will make them attractive candidates on the job
market. By drawing on disciplines in the social sciences, humanities, sciences and professional programs, the
proposed program offers students the opportunity to develop a combination of technical knowledge and expertise
in what otherwise may be a series of isolated issues.
•
Initial intake of 50 and planned steady-state enrolment of 149 FFTE.
Evidence of societal need and student demand:
• Half of the world’s population lives in metropolitan areas. The necessity to understand the relationships between
urbanization and the environment, with a focus on developing strategies to manage growth and minimize
associated environmental impacts, has been highlighted by numerous governments and organizations, from the
United Nations to Canadian federal, provincial and municipal bodies.
•
In March 2007, the Provincial Government announced the creation of the Working Group on Environmental
Education. The group has developed a comprehensive plan to integrate environmental education into Ontario’s
school system, and university-level education is part of this plan. Similarly, Environment Canada has issued a
call for universities to further develop learning in the areas of environment and sustainability. The need for
investment in this area is highlighted by the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, who
identified Environment and Alternative Energy as an “Invest in Ontario” sector. The Ministry of Research and
Innovation has also identified Environment and Sustainability as a research priority.
•
Developments in the secondary school curriculum include a strengthening of environmental education. It is
anticipated that this change will generate even greater interest among students in careers in environmental fields
and increased numbers of students seeking a related university program. Applications from secondary school
students to university programs in Environmental Studies have increased by 70% over the past five years, from
2,098 applications in 2006 to 3,576 applications in 2011.
•
With a significant increase in the demand for university enrolment expected in the GTA, the proposed program in
Environment and Urban Sustainability will serve as both an attractive option for students and an efficient means
of accommodating enrolment growth.
•
The Department of Geography is well positioned to offer the proposed program in Environment and Urban
Sustainability. Geography ranks third among all fields of study for those employed as environmental
practitioners in Canada.
Fit with Ryerson mission and resources:
• The current curriculum offered by the Department of Geography delivers high-quality education in keeping with
the Ryerson mission to offer programs that combine practical and theoretical elements. In addition to courses in
environmental analysis, students will have the opportunity to develop areas of interest to further employment
related skills. Optional internship placements will provide students with up to two summers of work experience.
•
The proposed program in Environment and Urban Sustainability is an extension of the Department of
Geography’s commitment to environmental education. The Department’s experience with professional electives
and liberal studies courses in environmental studies provides a solid foundation for the proposed program. In
addition, many faculty members associated with the proposed program already participate in Ryerson’s graduate
program in Environmental Applied Science and Management.
•
The proposed program fits into the Social Science platform offered by the Faculty of Arts, and students will be
able to transfer credits from and to other programs participating in the common platform.Board of Governors Meeting

Ryerson University
New Program Approval Summary for Board of Governors
Name of Program: Philosophy
Degree: Bachelor of Arts
Proposed starting date: September 2012
Proposed Tuition Fee (2012-13): $5,685.95 (2 terms maximum)
Brief program description:
• The proposed Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy adds this core discipline, whose conceptual frameworks can be
applied to many contemporary issues, to the program offerings accessible to students within the existing Faculty
of Arts common platform.
•
To provide a strong practical component, the program incorporates distinctive experiential and service learning
features which culminate with each student enroling in at least one experiential capstone course in fourth-year
that enables them to integrate and synthesize their learning in an applied manner.
•
Initial intake of 30 students and planned steady-state enrolment of 95 FFTE.
Evidence of societal need and student demand:
• Philosophy is a growing field of interest among high school students. Now that philosophy is offered in Grades
11 and 12 in Ontario, there are over 30,000 students at over 100 schools taking philosophy courses; and these
numbers are expanding. Ryerson’s Philosophy Department is already building a reputation among the high
schools within the GTA by establishing working relationships with philosophy teachers in some of those high
schools as well as faculty at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.
•
Undergraduate philosophy headcount enrolment in both the GTA and Ontario was about 3% higher in 2009-10
than the prior year, and has remained stable over the last five years with some institutions showing increases. In
2009-10, GTA institutions accounted for about half of the 3,686 philosophy students in the province.
•
Philosophy courses are already a very popular choice for students across Ryerson. In 2010-11, there were nearly
6,300 course registrations in philosophy of which two-thirds were from students outside the Faculty of Arts.
•
Philosophy graduates on the whole are very successful in a variety of professional careers by drawing on the
analytic, critical, abstract-reasoning, and problem-solving skills practiced over four years in a philosophy
program. Philosophy graduates are seen to bring distinctive value to the professional table when it comes to
societal issues and are employed outside academia in fields ranging from advertising to management, in addition
to career options within universities and the broader public sector.
•
With a significant increase in university enrolment demand anticipated in the GTA, the proposed Philosophy
program will be an attractive option for students and an efficient means of accommodating enrolment growth.
Fit with Ryerson mission and resources:
• The proposed Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy fits Ryerson’s mission to offer programs that combine practical and
theoretical elements. Its applied and experiential components make it completely distinct from all other
philosophy programs in Ontario and Canada. For example, in the service learning component of the Philosophy
Engaging Communities capstone, students will engage communities such as at-risk high school students, youth in
shelters, or seniors. Students are required to submit a final paper which integrates their academic study with an
analysis of their practical experience.
•
Comprising 15 RFA members, the Philosophy Department at Ryerson has a proven record of excellence in
research and teaching, an impressive list of national and international publications and a large number of research
grants and awards. One quarter of the department’s faculty members have received Standard Research Grants
from SSHRC. The department has also received a SSHRC Research Development Initiative Grant, a SSHRC
Strategic Knowledge Cluster Grant, and a SSHRC Aid to Research Workshop and Conference in Canada Grant.
•
By building on the Faculty of Arts common platform and the many philosophy courses already being offered, the
Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy expands Ryerson’s program offerings in an efficient manner.

POLICY FOR THE COLLECTION AND STORAGE OF STUDENTS’ SOCIAL INSURANCE NUMBERS
Preamble
The Social Insurance Number (SIN) is used by the Canadian Revenue Agency for tax reporting purposes.
Although only certain government departments and programs are authorized to collect and use the SIN,
there is no legislation that prohibits organizations from asking for it.
The SIN is a key piece of personal information that can be used to access other personal information and
to commit identity theft. It is essential that organizations have in place clear policies and practices related to
the collection, use, and storage of individual SIN’s to ensure that they are carefully protected.
At Ryerson, the SIN policy will be supported by the university’s privacy protection policy.
Lawfully authority to collect the SIN
The authority to collect and use the SIN is tied to a specific legislated purpose, not to a particular
organization.
There are at least three Acts that provide lawful authority for Ryerson University to collect the SIN from
students. These include:



Canada Student Financial Assistance Act and Regulations
Canada Student Loans Regulations (Canada Student Loans Act)
Income Tax Act
Purpose
This policy outlines authorized transactions at Ryerson University relating to the collection and use of the
SIN and storage of this data in the Student Administration System (SAS) database. This policy will indicate
the instances that require the university to ask for and store the SIN of its students.
Board of Governors Meeting
June 27, 2011, Page 90
POLICY
Acceptable uses of SIN by Ryerson University
A student’s social insurance number is required by the university for three distinct purposes:
1) The processing of Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) applications and the distribution of
OSAP funding. All communication and data sharing between the university and the National
Student Loan Centre require the SIN as the main identifier of the student.
2) The preparation of income tax documents the university is required to provide for all students who
have been awarded a scholarship, bursary of other monetary prize.
3) As part of the documentation related to the employment relationship when students are hired for
work by the university including employment funded through the work study program. This data
would be collected and stored by Human Resources and is not addressed in this policy.
Collection and Storage of SIN
1) The social Insurance number should not be requested from any student or applicant except related
to the acceptable uses noted above.
2) For OSAP Purposes the SIN is collected through the OSAP application process and is stored in the
bio/demo section of the student record in SAS.
3) For taxation purposes related to scholarships and bursaries the SIN should only be collected from
recipients once they have been awarded a scholarship or bursary and not collected or stored
through the application process.
4) No other forms in the Registrar’s Office including transcript request forms, course enrollment forms,
etc. should include any request for the SIN.
5) No documents or lists should be produced by the university containing an individual student’s SIN
unless required for one of the acceptable uses of SIN as described in this policy.
6) No false or temporary SIN’s should be entered into SAS manually or through file uploads.
Board of Governors Meeting
June 27, 2011, Page 91
Access to SIN data
1) Only authorized staff should have access to the student SIN data stored in SAS.
2) Departments with staff who have access to the SIN data are required to have staff access control
procedures in place.
3) All staff who are authorized to view and/or use the SIN data in SAS should receive annual training
related to the Information Privacy policies of the university and in particular the information that is
most sensitive related to identity theft issues i.e. name, birth date, SIN, etc.
Security of SIN data
1) All documents, applications, or lists containing an individual student’s SIN should be stored in a
location that is secure and can only be accessed by staff who have authorized access to this type
of information.
Destruction of SIN data
1) Where a business need no longer exists for the use of SIN data in SAS, it must be purged from the
system.
Notification related to this policy
All processes and forms requiring the collection of SIN are to include a statement to the students indicating
the university’s privacy policy and for what purpose their SIN is being collected and stored. In each case
language should be developed in consultation with Ryerson’s Information and Privacy Coordinator.
Jurisdiction
This policy is under the joint jurisdiction of the Provost and Vice President, Academic, and the General
Counsel and Secretary of the Board. Responsibility for ensuring that this policy is adhered to lies with the
Registrar of the University.

AGENDA ITEM: Execution of Contracts and Documents and Signing Approval Authority
Schedule (AAS) Policy
STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES:
_X___ Financial Resources Management
_X__ Compliance (e.g. legislatively required)
_X__ Governance
ACTION REQUIRED: Approval
SUMMARY: The BPS Financial Accountability Act (Bill 122) obtained Royal Assent on December
8, 2010 and allows for the issuance of directives on procurement and expenses which are
applicable to Ontario universities. The new requirements include a Board approved Approval
Authority Schedule (AAS) Policy.
Ryerson currently has a Board approved Execution of Contracts and Documents policy, as well
as a management approved purchasing policy which outlines signing authority levels. These
two policies have been combined and clarified in the attached Execution of Contracts and
Documents and Signing Approval Authority Schedule (AAS) Policy.
The most significant change is that all consulting services must be competitively bid, no matter
the spend level. Non-competitive procurement of consultants up to $999,999 requires the
approval of the President. Above this amount the approval of the Board of Governors is
required.
COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGY: Internal training sessions are underway across the University.

EXECUTION OF CONTRACTS AND DOCUMENTS
AND SIGNING APPROVAL AUTHORITY SCHEDULE (AAS)
Purpose
The purpose of this policy is to specify the signing authorities required for various types of contracts and
documents which may be entered into on behalf of the University. It is also to formally comply with the
Ontario Government’s Broader Public Sector (BPS) Procurement Directive (Directive) which requires that
the University establish an approval authority schedule (AAS) for procurement of goods and services, and
have it approved by the Board of Governors.
Scope
This policy applies to contracts for goods and services either purchased or provided by the University. It
applies to all faculty, staff, students, and members of the Board of Governors.
Definitions
"Contract" is used to describe any written agreement, contract, subcontract, letter of intent, memorandum
of understanding, memorandum of agreement, lease, purchase order, deed, transfer, instrument,
assignment, obligation, certificate or other document, the provisions of which may be binding upon the
University and which relate to the day to day operations of the University or are otherwise contemplated by
the University’s approved budget.
“Research contract” is a contract for services and products to be provided by Ryerson faculty, staff and
students in regard to research contracted or sponsored through external funding sources.
"Consulting services" as defined by BPS Directive as the provision of expertise or strategic advice that is
presented for consideration and decision-making. Consultants are further described as “thinkers” as
opposed to “doers” who are considered as providing professional services for this policy. A full list of
consultants and professional services is available on the Purchasing website.
POLICY
No person is authorized to sign any contract on behalf of Ryerson University unless authority to do so has
been provided for in this policy or delegated by the President through the line structure. Two signatures
(requestor and approver) are required for all purchases over $100. The approver and requestor cannot be
the same person.
Prior to presenting a contract for signature by the appropriate signing officer(s), the following requirements
must be met unless there is an exception as outlined in Section 4 immediately below:
1.
The Financial Services Department must review and approve the financial and insurance
terms of the contract;
Board of Governors Meeting
June 27, 2011, Page 95
2.
An assessment of the risks to which the University may be exposed to by entering into the
contract must be prepared, by completing and signing the Ryerson Contract Checklist for Risk
Management (attached);
3.
The Provost and Vice President Academic or the Vice President, Administration and
Finance, as appropriate, must review and approve the business terms of the contract;
4.
The contract must be reviewed by Ryerson University General Counsel.
Exceptions: The following types of contracts do not require legal review:
i. form (template) contracts that have been previously reviewed by legal counsel; or
ii. renewals of contracts with the same parties and with the same terms where legal review has
been provided on the original contract.
Research Contracts
Contracts with research funding agencies (NSERC, SSHRC, etc.) must be signed by the Vice President,
Research and Innovation, by the Provost and Vice President Academic or the President. If a research
contract is for more than five years and/or greater than $1 million in any one year, the contract must also be
signed by the President. Prior to executing any such contract, an assessment must be prepared setting out
the risks to which the University may be exposed to by entering such contract.
Student Placement Agreements
Student placement agreements require the “Ryerson Contract Checklist for Risk Management for
Placement Agreements” to be completed. This is available on Ryerson’s Blackboard under
Placement/Practicum. For access contact the Director of Academic Initiatives, Office of the Provost and
Vice President.
Jurisdiction and Review
This policy is under the jurisdiction of the Vice President, Administration and Finance. Interpretation and
administration is the responsibility of the Assistant Vice President, Financial Services.
This policy is subject to review every three (3) years.
Approval Authority Schedules
The following approval authority schedules (AAS) establish for each functional procurement role the
authority that is required, respectively, to approve procurements of goods and non-consulting services, and
procurements of goods and consulting services, at different dollar thresholds.

The President opened his remarks by reporting that the Chair was to have an Honorary
Doctorate conferred on her by Mount St. Vincent University in Halifax on May 19th.
The President spoke briefly about the recent suicides at Queen’s University. He said that issues
of stress and mental health are being discussed across the sector and the Chancellor at the
University of Windsor agreed to support this as a campaign across Canada. Ryerson’s Executive
Group met last week to discuss this matter.
The President alerted the Board to the progress being made with regard to Ryerson’s strategy in
India. He added that the Provost is taking the lead in discussions with the University of Anna in
Chennai and the development of a Memorandum of Understanding with that university.
The President updated Board members on plans for increasing the numbers of student
residences. Consultations with the President’s Advisory Board on Real Estate and Development
Strategy have suggested the possibility of working with a private developer. The strategy for this
item may come to the Board in the summer through the Executive Committee.

DISCUSSION ITEMS
5.1
Report from the Chair of the Finance Committee
The Chair introduced the budget papers and thanked Alan Shepard, Janice Winton and Paul
Stenton for the hours of work that went into preparing the budget. He asked Sheldon Levy to
give an overview of the budget.
(a)
2011-12 University Budget - Budget Priorities and Expenditures
The President introduced the budget presentation by reporting that it was a balanced budget.
He also reported that the initial forecast of a 3% budget reduction had been revised to a 2.8%
reduction. The President spoke of the effect of the provincial budget on university enrollment
plans and the fact that there was no money allocated for inflation costs.
The Provost spoke of the budget process and thanked his colleagues on the central budget
committee for their contribution to the process. He discussed the impact of enrollment on the
budget and how the budget promotes the University’s five strategic priorities. When discussing
the fees he reported on the range of student financial assistance offered and the Student Access
Guarantee Policy and how it benefits students.
Jocelyne Cote-O’Hara encouraged the Provost to investigate alternative revenue streams.
Janice Winton gave an overview of the full operating budget including grants; the consolidated
budget and the balance sheet.
To balance the budget, while supporting the strategic priorities and covering inflationary and
salary costs it was recommended that the overall average tuition fees increase by 5% in 201112; that there be a 2.8% across-the-board base budget reduction, and strategic budget
allocations of $3.8 million in base expenditures and $9.9 million in One Time Only expenditures.
Phyllis Yaffe thanked the all team for putting the budget together.

6.2
Report from the Chair of the Employee Relations and Pension Committee
Jocelyne Cote-O’Hara introduced the report and asked Julia Hanigsberg to speak to it.
(a)
Environmental Health and Safety Report
Julia Hanigsberg spoke to the report and congratulated Julia Lewis and her team for their work
on injury prevention. The University continues to do well among its peers despite expanded risk
such as the introduction of criminal liability, new regulatory requirements and substantial
growth in research activity, building infrastructure and academic programs. The Environmental
Health and Safety initiatives continue to prove adaptive and robust and strengthen the
University’s capacity to meet the changing conditions and behaviors which affect risk. Julia
spoke of the internal responsibility system at Ryerson and the impact of Bill 168 on the
University.
(b)
Funded Projections and Valuation Assumptions of the Ryerson Retirement Pension Plan
(RRPP) January 1, 2011
Jocelyne Cote –O’Hara introduced the rationale for the assumptions presented by the
University’s Actuaries, Towers Watson. Larissa Allen then gave more details about the
assumptions and said that no changes were recommended for the coming year.
Ms. Allen said that a modest surplus was projected for the coming year, but a deficit was
forecast over the next three years. She reported that her work with the Ryerson Joint pension
Committee would hopefully mitigate this impending deficit. An agreement will be coming to the
Board in June with regard to the Joint Pension Committee.
The President reported that by September 30 the Board will be required to decide whether to
file the Ryerson Retirement Pension Plan report with the Financial Services Commission of
Ontario. In discussion of the pension deficit Larissa Allen indicated that Ryerson University had
not had an increase in contributions for the last 16 years.

Report to the Board of Governors June 2011 2010 – 2011 Periodic Program Review of Undergraduate Programs This report to the Board of Governors summarizes the Periodic Program Review of the following three undergraduate degree programs that were received by and approved by the Senate in 2010 – 2011: Early Childhood Education, Architectural Science and Social Work. These Periodic Program Reviews were undertaken in accordance with Section VII of Senate Policy No. 126, Periodic Program Review of Undergraduate Programs, and approved by the Senate’s Academic Standards Committee. Each academic department or school is required to respond to the recommendations of a Periodic Program Review that has been accepted by Senate, and to indicate in a report in one year’s time how it has responded to those recommendations. Early Childhood Education Program description The School of Early Childhood Education offers the Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education on a full‐ or part‐time basis and it is the only degree‐level program in Canada which focuses on the development of the child ages birth to 8 years. The school also offers a Master of Arts in Early Childhood Studies. The annual first‐year intake target is about 145. The intake for full‐time direct entry is 45, for part‐time direct entry it is about 55 and for degree completion entrants from George Brown College it is about 35. The total enrollment of all years in all variations of the program was 710 in 2008/2009 and 695 in 2009/2010. Analysis of Strengths and Weaknesses The strength of the Early Childhood BA is that students receive a broad education as opposed to narrow, professional training received by students enrolled in community college ECE programs. The program’s range of field placements, including its strong links to the Early Learning Centre and the Gerrard Resource Centre, attracts high‐quality students reflecting the diversity of Toronto. Opportunities for growth and improvement exist in the areas of reducing redundancy and increasing rigor in curriculum, increasing flexibility and improving communication about field placement expectations, continuing to ensure high‐quality placements for students, developing a clear process for admission of George Brown College students to ensure comparable admission requirements, and balanced loads between undergraduate and graduate teaching. Academic Standards Committee Recommendations  Revise admission requirements to a minimum of 70% in the required Grade 12 English course (from a current 65%) to emphasize the importance of writing opportunities for ECE students  Revise curriculum to require both math and science courses in upper years, consider balance between core content and breadth and adopt a systematic approach to on‐going curriculum review • Continue to pursue strategy with George Brown College to improve admission requirements for greater student success  Re‐evaluate the pass/fail grade system for field placements to address pedagogic issues 2010 – 2011 Periodic Program Review, Report to Board of Governors, June 2011 Page 1
Board of Governors Meeting
June 27, 2011, Page 108
Architectural Science Program description In January 2010, full accreditation status was awarded to the Department of Architectural Science by the Canadian Architecture Certification Board (CACB). This means the Bachelor of Architectural Science program is a pre‐professional degree leading to admissibility to the master’s degree in architecture. The undergraduate program combines lecture‐ and studio‐based programming to emphasize studies in design theory, technology, and management. The long‐standing reputation of the program rests in part on this unique emphasis of the curriculum. The first three years of the program provide students with a common foundation, and then in students’ final year, program options are designated. The first‐year enrollment target was reduced to 114 from 160 in 2009/2010 in order to prepare for the ramp up in graduate programming. Total enrollment in all years in all variations of the program was approximately 570 in the years prior to the target readjustment. Analysis of Strengths and Weaknesses The new, accredited curriculum provides a balance between breadth of preparation in the first three years, and specialist knowledge in the three areas of Architecture, Building Science and Project Management in year 4, and experiential learning opportunities continue to distinguish the program. Many of the curriculum and program issues were fully or partially addressed by the change in curriculum structure for accreditation. The program attracts a large pool of high‐quality applicants and retention rates in the program are very high. In recent years, graduates have been admitted to professional graduate programs in architecture at Dalhousie University, the University of Toronto, McGill University, Cornell University, Yale University, and Columbia University, to mention a few. There is an extraordinarily strong student culture in the program, with three major student societies. Opportunities for growth and improvement exist in the areas of faculty workload and balancing SRC activities, additional administrative staff, increased architecture library acquisitions, upgrading outdated infrastructure, increasing program visibility and branding in the Ryerson community and externally, continued SRC growth including an increase in qualified graduate research students and building a more cohesive faculty. Academic Standards Committee Recommendations  Completion of a full UDLEs analysis of the program and a follow‐up report to ensure that program level learning objectives are being met, and to identify potential areas of the curriculum where there may be more flexibility for greater student choice  Consider increased student choice for liberal studies electives  Monitor the courses in the fourth‐year specializations and how these contribute to program coherence in follow‐up report  Continue to refine its curriculum to address s tudent workload Social Work Program description The School of Social Work offers two distinct degrees: Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) and Master of Social Work (MSW). The Ryerson BSW is now the largest undergraduate BSW program in Canada. In 2010, the program received a full seven‐year re‐accreditation by the Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE). In fall 2008, the school celebrated its 44th‐anniversary. The program has grown from a two‐year certificate for 25 students to a four‐year baccalaureate degree with over 700 full‐time and 100 part‐time students. The annual first‐year student intake target is about 190 for the four‐year program and about 60 for the advanced standing program. Approximately 2/3 of the four‐year 2010 – 2011 Periodic Program Review, Report to Board of Governors, June 2011 Page 2
Board of Governors Meeting
June 27, 2011, Page 109
program admits are direct from high school and the remainder are either mature students or individuals who have a previous degree. Analysis of Strengths and Weaknesses The BSW program enjoys the high regard of students, graduates, agency representatives, community members and the university administration. The school has a strong sense of community and plays a significant and multi‐faceted role in the broader community. It is seen as a leader in addressing social issues and providing relevant curriculum. The program exhibits slightly better than average retention and graduation rates. There is a robust student culture within the school. The RFA faculty complement has increased over time, with a marked increase in research funding, editorship, publication and other markers of research success. Opportunities for growth and improvement exist in the areas of reducing curriculum redundancy, lessening excessive student workload particularly in second year, possible creation of a minor in Disability Studies, growth in faculty keeping pace with the growth of the undergraduate and MSW program, increased administrative staff, space constraints, and continued field placement monitoring by faculty. Academic Standards Committee Recommendations  Review and make adjustments when needed to curricular changes to eliminate curricular redundancy, mitigate student workload concerns and facilitate the minor in Disabilities Studies  Completion of a full UDLEs analysis of the program and a follow‐up report to ensure that program level learning objectives are being met  Provide full data on enrollment in all courses (required and elective) and details of average class size  Supports the program’s initiative to return to its original model of monitoring placements with a minimum of one faculty field visit per course and more if required 2010 – 2011 Periodic Program Review, Report to Board of Governors, June 2011 Page 3

Shaping Our Future: Academic Plan for 2008‐2013 Annual Report to the Board of Governors June 2011
Board of Governors Meeting
June 27, 2011, Page 111
Shaping Our Future, Ryerson University’s five‐year academic plan, was approved by Senate in June 2008.1 The plan outlines five areas of strategic academic importance to the university; each faculty and academic unit pursues these goals through individual academic plans. On an annual basis, each unit submits a progress report to the Office of the Provost. This summary captures the achievements and challenges of the academic plan in its third year of implementation: 2010 – 2011. The full report may be found at: http://www.ryerson.ca/provost/planning/documents/ 1. High‐quality, societally relevant programs Ryerson continues to provide undergraduate and graduate students with high‐quality and societally relevant programs. With the development and implementation of new, innovative and interdisciplinary programs, Ryerson’s reputation for delivering responsive professional and professionally related university education continues to grow. Innovative programs Our new degree development reflects areas of growing social importance and connections to growing employment sectors. Undergraduate program offerings under development include Creative Industries and Professional Communications (FCAD), Real Estate and Mining Management (TRSM), and a degree in Environmental and Urban Sustainability (Arts) ready for implementation. In fall 2011, Ryerson will launch its first English degree, an in‐demand program, having received over 1,000 applications. Four new graduate programs began in 2010 – a PhD in Economics; and master’s in Fashion, Professional Communication and Philosophy. Three more programs are expected to begin in September 2011: PhDs in Molecular Science, Computer Science and Biomedical Physics. The Chang School continued to approach its goal of expanding its capacity to mount new continuing education certificates to 13% by 2012 through the creation of new certificates. The certificates developed in 2010 are available to students in 2011/12. Program accreditation Accredited programs are an integral part of Ryerson’s academic reputation, ensuring that our programs meet the rigor of peer review and graduates develop the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively practice in their fields. In 2010/11, a number of programs and schools received and renewed accreditation status including the Master of Architecture professional‐degree program (Canadian Architectural Certification Board), the School of Social Work (Canadian Association for Social Work Education), the Bachelor of Interior Design program (Council for Interior Design Accreditation) (CIDA), and the Public Health program (Canadian Institute of Public Health Inspectors). Creating more student choice While maintaining a strong commitment to excellence and relevance, we recognize the changing needs of our students. Increased access to majors and minors is one approach to offering our students more 1
www.ryerson.ca/senate/academicplan.pdf Academic Plan for 2008‐2013, Report to Board of Governors, June 2011 Page 1
Board of Governors Meeting
June 27, 2011, Page 112
choice in exploring a wider range of their academic interests and better preparing them for an increasingly interdisciplinary working world. A number of new majors are under development. Areas include Non‐Profit and Voluntary Sector Management and Ethics (Arts), Medical Physics and Commercialization (FEAS and TRSM), Biology and Entrepreneurship (FEAS and TRSM). Senate approved two new minors to be offered in fall 2011. Fashion Studies will be available to students from the Retail Management program, and other programs in the future, while News Studies, offered by the School of Journalism, will be available to students from Arts and selected programs within FCAD. Other minor offerings in development include a minor in computer science (FEAS) and a professional minor for non‐business students (TRSM). Relevant and responsive curriculum Regular curriculum review is essential to ensuring the quality and relevance of our academic programs. In 2010, degree‐level expectations (DLEs) – a threshold framework for students’ expression of intellectual and creative skills – were introduced into the curriculum review process. It is expected that as programs integrate DLEs into their curriculum reviews, redundancies will be identified and reduced to find room to offer new courses. The annual curriculum review day introduced by FCS is an opportunity to update curriculum on an annual basis. The impetus for change in our curriculum extends beyond regular curriculum review. As the Academic Plan articulates, there is desire to open up our tripartite curriculum model somewhat to meet student demand for more course flexibility and choice, and fulfill program aspirations to create new courses and curriculum packages.2 The Ryerson community – at the time of writing – is discussing a proposal for an amended model that would foster, in addition increased access to double majors and minors, more interdisciplinary courses and a liberal studies calendar that offers breadth across all faculties. 2. Student engagement, success and retention Space The most obvious efforts toward enhancing the student experience are in the changes to space at Ryerson. On April 6, 2011, the spectacular design for the Student Learning Centre (SLC) was unveiled to the community. Designed by the international architectural team of Zeidler Partnership Architects of Toronto and Snøhetta of Oslo, Norway and New York, the eight‐story building will provide students with an environment to study, collaborate and discover, and will bridge to the existing library building. Transformation continues at Maple Leaf Gardens to turn it into a new athletics facility and the Image Arts building, home to the Ryerson Gallery and Research Centre, is slated for occupancy in fall 2011. Regardless, space limitations remain an issue while lab and lecture room renewal is ongoing. Support Individual student success matters at Ryerson. Student Learning Support launched four new programs in 2010/11 aimed at improving student retention and success. Programs included the Math Assistance Centre on the fifth floor in the Library, FA‐ST (a series of facilitated study groups for select courses that 2

are especially challenging for first‐year students), Get Clear (a program for students on probationary status after the fall semester) and Fresh Start (for students who are RTW). Faculty‐based initiatives also include the Writing Skills Initiative launched by FCS and the Mathematics Quickstart Workshop hosted in FEAS to help develop the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in first‐year math courses. The Library increased its capacity for laptop loans as technology was refreshed, and continued to develop popular mobile applications including its award‐winning QR‐barcode scanner which allows students to quickly determine if a book is available in its catalogue. Within individual faculties, specific initiatives were launched to support greater student retention. With the Senate‐approved establishment of the School of Accounting and Finance, there will be a redesign of first‐year courses. Also within TRSM, a mandatory first‐year math literacy test was implemented to improve basic numeracy, and weekly seminars and workshops added to the large Business 100 course (1,000‐plus students) which had tremendous impact on preparing first‐year students. Support is also given at the university and faculty levels to enable student‐run events, extra‐curricular activities and participation in conferences. Service In an effort to improve the service we deliver to our students, a review and report on the Registrar’s Office was conducted with the findings and recommendations to be implemented over the next several years. The front face of Undergraduate Admissions and Recruitment moved to the lobby of Jorgenson Hall to provide a more welcoming space for prospective applicants, students and their families. A new online booking system for OSAP distribution helped to reduce some of the longest lineups in the first few weeks of school. Recognizing the critical role academic advising plays in student success, a report was completed on how academic advising can be enhanced at Ryerson. The Digital Media Zone (DMZ) The DMZ is one of Ryerson's leading investments in student and alumni success, empowering young entrepreneurs to turn their digital innovations into viable businesses. This incubator responds to two of the five core priorities of our Academic Plan: the investment supports student engagement and success, while the extensive media coverage of and external interest in the DMZ contribute to reputation building for Ryerson. In April 2011, the DMZ celebrated its first anniversary, marked by: more than 113 innovators in 28 teams, 24 start‐ups incubated and accelerated, 187 jobs fostered and created through newly formed startups and market‐driven research, and four companies leasing office space as they outgrew the DMZ. Access Ryerson’s commitment to access is ongoing. The number of students served by Spanning the Gaps and Programs for 50+ (offered by the Chang School) increased. Spanning the Gaps activities also included outreach and information sessions for under‐represented groups within the Toronto area such as participating in community capacity building (for example, Regent Park Learning Centre). The Aboriginal Education Council (AEC), formed in early 2010, officially launched in October with a healing ceremony. The AEC supports post‐secondary education for First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities. Membership on the council includes students, faculty, staff and members of Toronto's Aboriginal community. In April 2011, the council announced its first round of funding for a new student and faculty support fund. Academic Plan for 2008‐2013, Report to Board of Governors, June 2011 Page 3

3. SRC Activity Volume SRC activity at Ryerson continued to make significant gains in terms of funding, awards, post‐doctoral fellowships and external rankings. Ryerson leads all Canadian universities in research publication growth over the past decade and ranks second in the undergraduate category for top research university of the year.3 In the Faculty of Arts, SRC grants per faculty member exceeded their goals, and in FCAD, twice as many faculty produced academic publications as they did in 2009. Through the successful launch of the Undergraduate Research Opportunities (URO) Scholarships program, over 60 undergraduate students engaged with Ryerson faculty researchers. Ryerson was highly successful in the MITACS program with graduate students receiving over $1 million in funding. Research centres Collaborations across disciplines and with external partners are increasing the number of institutes and research centres at Ryerson, particularly in strategic research clusters. Building upon existing faculty expertise and historic strength in immigration and settlement studies, Senate approved the Ryerson Centre on Immigration and Settlement (RCIS). The interdisciplinary Centre for Global Health and Equity was established at FCS and the Centre for Urban Energy (CUE) was announced by FEAS in September 2010. CUE secured $7 million in funding for five years and includes a number of founding industry partners. TRSM has three centres and 11 research centres attached to the faculty. Support Recognition and value for SRC within each faculty continued to grow in 2010/11. Thirty post‐doctoral fellows currently support faculty. Arts installed a grant writer to strengthen faculty submissions. In FCAD, the dean initiated a comprehensive revision of SRC policy to clarify expectations for tenure and promotion. The Office of the Dean in FCS continued to provide SRC support to faculty including additional funding to all faculty research centres to enhance their work in relation to external funding and knowledge translation. Within FEAS, a number of initiatives were undertaken including support for Ryerson post‐doctoral fellows and provision of seed funding, NSERC bridge funding and conference travel subsidies for its faculty members. The Library launched a small fund to support faculty publishing in open access journals. 4. Learning and Teaching Learning and teaching excellence is an academic priority that is pursued at the university and faculty level. Remarkable faculty were recognized at the annual Faculty Teaching Awards for their dedication and passion to teaching, and this year, Arne Kislenko, Professor, Department of History was recognized as a 3M Teaching Fellow, Canada’s highest, post‐secondary teaching honour. The teaching chair model was mounted by the Learning and Teaching Office (LTO) and the seven inaugural teaching chairs are advancing the leadership of teaching at the faculty level. The LTO also initiated the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Fund (LTEF) to support innovation in the classroom; the seven recipients of the first round of funding will present their research at the 2012 faculty conference. 3

To support the development of teaching assistants and graduate assistants, the LTO launched a professional development program; to date, 732 participants attended the program workshops. A new certificate for teaching was developed for graduate students. More than 100 students joined the first phase of this program which involves both workshop attendance and a weekly seminar about teaching. The LTO is currently creating the second level certificate program which will be launched in fall 2011. 5. Reputation Ryerson continues to build its academic reputation among prospective students, media, industry, government, within the GTA, across Canada and the world. It is beyond the scope of this report to capture all initiatives which contribute to reputation enhancement; what follows only scratches the surface. Leading researchers and experts World‐class experts continued to associate their names and bring their expertise to Ryerson. Faculties enhanced their teaching and research capacity through strategic hires, and eight leading Canadians were appointed distinguished visitors: 

Partnerships and collaborations Every faculty and academic unit is broadening its base of strategic partnerships. FCAD fostered a number of partnerships including the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), the National Ballet School of Canada and Sheridan College Animation Program among others. Within FCS, external relationship building focused on developing research and knowledge dissemination relationships with a number of leading health institutions; TRSM launched specialized programs for Canadian Olympic athletes, NHL alumni and the Federation of International Basketball Association. Faculties are involved with St. Michael’s Hospital in a number of different capacities, and the Chang School grew its partnerships base to 26. Additional considerations Academic structures In 2010, the Provost’s Commission on Academic Structures wrote and submitted a white paper to the Office of the Provost and Senate after broad community consultation. The white paper contained a set of suggestions for Ryerson’s academic structure that the commission believed could support the university’s growth and success in the future. This past year, committees were formed to explore two of the possible scenarios presented in the white paper: the creation of a Faculty of Science and the transfer Academic Plan for 2008‐2013, Report to Board of Governors, June 2011 Page 5

Message from the President
For the first time in many years, this note will not speculate on the date of the next election. The
next federal election will be October 17, 2015. This provides a four-year planning horizon for the
first time in almost a decade, and AUCC is well positioned to advocate strongly throughout the
mandate.
Initial meetings with senior public servants confirm that they recognize the valuable role universities
play in creating prosperity and addressing Canada’s economic, demographic and social challenges.
We expect the government to re-introduce its March 22 budget including its enhanced investment
for research and internationalization, and we have begun briefing newly elected and returning MPs
on the priorities of Canada’s universities. We will be seeking meetings with new Cabinet members as
well.
The stability of a majority government coupled with sustained economic growth augurs well. It
should be noted however that there will continue to be a sustained period of significant fiscal
constraint. The government’s current fiscal plan calls for a five percent cut in non-statutory
spending – and a system-wide expenditure review is under way (including the granting councils).
Current transfer agreements expire in 2014, and the public debate and negotiations have begun. The
Conservatives’ commitment to increase funding to health care at six percent a year will place further

pressure on the federal government’s fiscal capacity. This means that effective and united advocacy
will be essential if universities are to see even modest increases in federal funding in coming years.
Throughout the spring, Herb O’Heron, AUCC’s director of research and policy analysis, and I have
been providing “sneak previews” of the most recent Trends data on student enrolment, including
presentations at the Association of Atlantic Universities, the Council of Western Canadian
University Presidents, AUCC’s undergraduate workshop, with university government relations
officers, with senior public servants and select media. The response has been enthusiastic. Next
week we will be releasing the full document to national media, and providing members with “10 Fast
Facts” that can be used in your communications efforts.
I am also pleased to say that momentum continues to build in connection with our planned national
open doors initiative to be held November 3-14. Twenty universities have already confirmed their
participation. The open doors initiative is modeled on the success of the heritage community’s open
doors program. It will be an opportunity to celebrate the completion of Knowledge Infrastructure
Program projects, underscore key messages of the new narrative, and lay the foundation for future
advocacy asks. Details can be found below.
Following last year’s Board retreat and the development of a new narrative, the Standing Advisory
Committee on University Research will be holding an extraordinary meeting May 20 in Montreal to
assess the changing domestic and international landscape and to recommend short and medium-tern
advocacy priorities to AUCC’s Board with a view to developing a strategic multi-year plan. The
meeting will build on discussions held at the April membership meeting and consider the
implications of a majority government as the Board prepares its advocacy agenda for the fall.
In addition to our transition briefings, June promises to be an extremely busy month, including
further work on our Aboriginal agenda, follow-up to last year’s India mission, and hosting our Brazil
strategy session in advance of next year’s university presidents’ mission there. Thank you for your
help in working with AUCC to advance the higher education agenda.
Majority Conservative government: a four-year advocacy window
Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s majority government provides us with a stable political
environment in which to pursue our advocacy agenda over a four-year period. The Harper
government has a demonstrated track record of supporting research, innovation, and
internationalization activities, as was most recently evident in the March 22 federal budget it
introduced.
Prime Minister Harper introduced his new Cabinet May 18. Several of our key interlocutors remain
in their posts: Jim Flaherty at Finance, Diane Finley at Human Resources and Skills Development,
John Duncan at Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, James Moore at Heritage, and Gary
Goodyear remains as Minister of State for Science and Technology. Nonetheless, there are three
key departments that have new ministers: Christian Paradis at Industry, Ed Fast at International
Trade, and John Baird at Foreign Affairs.

Board of Governors Meeting
June 27, 2011, Page 127
Parliament is to return on June 2nd. Prime Minister Harper has indicated that his government will
introduce a brief Speech from the Throne, a budget similar to the March 22 budget and a number of
justice bills from the last Parliament. I have already been in dialogue with both the Prime Minister’s
Office and the Finance Minister’s office, as well as sent congratulatory letters to all incoming
members of Parliament. AUCC staff and I continue to work with our senior political and public
service contacts to advance the advocacy priorities of the AUCC before the tabling of the June
budget.
AUCC’s government relations officers are meeting with the new and veteran political staffers to
government parliamentarians and briefing the government’s higher education caucus. They will
share the results of these meetings with member institutions’ GROs at their next regular
teleconference, which is scheduled for June 10.
Open Doors
From November 4 to 13, member institutions are invited to participate in a national initiative that
highlights the completion of Knowledge Infrastructure Program-funded projects, celebrates
AUCC’s centennial year and lays the foundation for future advocacy. This is an opportunity for the
university community to thank the people of Canada and the provincial and federal governments for
their support. It is also an occasion for the general public to visit our campuses and learn more
about the important role our institutions play in our local communities and in the global marketplace
of ideas, research and innovation.
This is an important initiative to gain added profile through participation of members from across
the country. The timing is important: it is during the lead-up to the 2012 federal budget, and in a
constituency week, when MPs are back in their ridings.
The idea emerged from the Board retreat in April 2010 and was developed with input from directors
of communications and regional associations.
Twenty universities have already signed up to coordinate their individual campus events with the
open doors initiative. There is no set template for events; you can tailor the scope and direction of
any event to suit your particular needs. The goal of the initiative is to be broad enough to meet local
needs, but national in scale. AUCC will support all campus events through a national
communications strategy.
To date, the following member institutions are participating: Athabasca University, University of
Calgary, Concordia University, University of Guelph, University of Lethbridge, University of
Manitoba, Université de Moncton, Mount Royal University, Institut national de la recherche
scientifique, University of Northern British Columbia, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design,
École Polytechnique de Montréal, Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Université du
Québec en Outaouais, Queen’s University, Redeemer University College, Royal Roads University,
École de technologie supérieure, University of Waterloo, and The University of Western Ontario.

AUCC’s April membership meeting a success
Our April 2011 membership meeting in Victoria was a great success and I would like to thank the
more than 60 of you who attended. I would also like to thank the University of Victoria for
welcoming us on campus for an opening reception and dinner on Tuesday, April 12 and Royal
Roads University for hosting the luncheon, afternoon program and closing reception on Wednesday,
April 13. For more information for members who did not attend the meetings, including a link to
Dominic Barton of McKinsey and Company’s presentation, see here.
Thank you to those who took the time to share feedback informally and through our online survey.
Overall, members were very satisfied with the meetings and AUCC’s commitment to shape them to
enhance dialogue among members. Staff will apply lessons learned to our centennial meeting in
Montreal in October.
AUCC’s centennial meeting: October 25-27, 2011 in Montreal
2011 marks the 100th anniversary of the first meeting of university presidents in Canada. There will
be centennial-themed events throughout the year with a focus on celebrating the diversity and
dynamism of Canada’s universities and their contributions to Canada. The focal point will be the fall
membership meeting in Montreal.
Events will kick off Tuesday, October 25 with a morning networking event for new presidents
followed by AUCC’s business meeting, lunch and standing advisory committee meetings.
The evening festivities will feature a gala dinner with special guest, Governor General David
Johnston, who will join members, partners, and Canadian dignitaries at McGill University’s Redpath
Hall, the spot where university leaders first met in 1911.
The October 26 meeting will take place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Montreal. It will mark the
public launch of AUCC’s new narrative with an opening speech by AUCC’s incoming chair, Stephen
Toope, president of the University of British Columbia, who will outline universities’ commitments
to Canadians. About 15 “thought leaders” from the private, cultural and non-governmental sectors
will also be invited to join members in the morning for “conversations about Canada” and
reflections on the role of Canadian universities in future.

AUCC launches University Commons
AUCC has launched a communications and media strategy to promote the centennial and garner
public attention on the critical role of higher education to Canada’s future.
Our 100th anniversary website will be launched in conjunction with a redesigned AUCC website in
June. The main feature of the centennial site is an online dialogue on the future of university
education in Canada via a new blog, The University Commons. All executive heads are invited to
write an op ed-style submission of 300 to 600 words to contribute to this discussion. We are also
extending this invitation to other visionary thinkers in Canada, both familiar names and others who
may not have yet publicly participated in such a discussion. It is our hope that a meaningful dialogue
with fresh ideas will take shape, leading us into the discussions of our historic gathering at our
membership meeting in Montreal in October.
Please contact AUCC’s communications manager, Helen Murphy at [email protected] or ext. 238
to let us know if you would like to participate in the dialogue.
Ursula on Tour
Many of you will be aware that our fun, social-media focused centennial project is Ursula on Tour,
the cross-Canada tour of university campuses by a small, wooden polar bear in the likeness of the
bear on our coat of arms. Ursula’s tour is off to a terrific start with the wonderful hosting and
submissions of Memorial University, the University of King’s College, St. Francis Xavier University
and Mount Allison University. Ursula will end her tour in Montreal at the AUCC membership
meeting, complete with a display of the universities she’s visited along the way. If you haven’t
already done so, check out Ursula’s blog at http://www.ursulaontour.ca. Ursula on Tour has already
garnered media coverage, with more to come. The objective of this initiative is to capture and share
a slice of life of Canada’s universities through social media and to build community among our
member institutions. With such early success, our 40-cm folk-art bear is delivering exactly that.
Strategic engagement with Brazil
We are ramping up our focus on Brazil over the next few months, with plans such as a high profile
workshop for senior university staff on strategic engagement with Brazil in June, leading up to a
university presidents’ mission there in spring 2012.
I will be leading that mission of up to 20 Canadian university presidents to Brazil, April 28 to May 4
2012, with the goal to position Canadian universities as partners of choice and to showcase higher
education opportunities in Canada. The mission will coincide with the Conference of the Americas
in Sao Paulo. Please note these dates in your calendar, and notify Gail Bowkett, assistant director of
international relations, at [email protected] or at ext 301 to indicate your interest in participating in
this mission. More details will follow in the coming months.

India-Canada Education Summit now open to designates
A reminder that on June 17-18, 2011 Carleton University will host the Canada-India Education
Summit, with support from the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute, the Department of Foreign Affairs
and International Trade, and the High Commission of India. There are approximately five remaining
spots available, and participation in the summit has now been opened to designates at the
provost/vice president level. Please indicate your university’s interest in participating to Rachel
Lindsey, senior policy analyst, international relations, AUCC, as soon as possible: [email protected]
or ext. 249.
International missions: Chile and Turkey
Following a delegation of 10 representatives from AUCC member institutions to Chile in May 2010,
AUCC continues to build on the relationship with Chilean higher education institutions with a
follow-up mission undertaken by Margaux Béland, director of partnership programs, in March 2011
with funding from the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade. The aim was to
promote Canadian higher education directly with 8 key institutions in the Santiago region and to
enhance efforts to collaborate with the Council of Rectors of Chile and specifically to facilitate
increased two-way student and academic mobility as well as research collaboration and partnerships
between Canadian and Chilean higher education.
Ms. Béland also joined a delegation of 20 senior university leaders to Turkey recently to explore
opportunities for collaboration. The delegation was led by the Conference Board of Canada and
included 17 vice-presidents from 14 Canadian universities which are part of the Board’s Quality
Network for Universities. The week-long mission to Turkey visited Ankara and Istanbul, to explore
globalization and internationalization of higher education by learning more about universities in
Turkey and their engagement in global processes, including the Bologna process and its aim to
create a European Higher Education Area of which Turkey is a member.
AUCC delivers online workshops for embassies abroad
AUCC delivered three information sessions via “webinar” to education officers in Canadian
embassies throughout the world last month.
Organized in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, the
webinars were cast as a “refresher course” for the officers to provide them with the latest
information on Canadian universities to assist their efforts in promoting Canada as a study
destination. More than 75 officers from 50 missions across the United States, Latin America,
Europe, Africa and Asia participated. This initiative was one element of the action plan developed
by AUCC and the other associations involved the Canadian Consortium for International Education
Marketing.

Best practices in Aboriginal education
Queen’s University is organizing a national conference on Aboriginal postsecondary education that
will take place on campus from June 12 to 14. The conference will be co-chaired by Don
Drummond, former TD Bank senior vice-president and Matthews fellow and distinguished visiting
scholar, Queen’s school of policy studies and Bob Watts, fellow, Queens school of policy studies
and former chief of staff and CEO, Assembly of First Nations. Keynote speakers will be National
Chief Shawn A-in-chut Atleo, Assembly of First Nations, Roberta Jamieson, CEO of the National
Aboriginal Achievement Foundation, and Mary Simon, president of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami.
Conference working groups, keynote addresses, panels and a best practices showcase will build on
the work of AUCC and other organizations and provide participants with the opportunity to
consider and assess strategies that work and to determine how to apply them more broadly across
institutions. Topics will include outreach and recruitment of Aboriginal students, entrance
requirements, role models, community partnerships, indigenizing curriculum, governance and
financial obstacles, with a view to developing policy recommendations for institutions, communities
and governments.

AUCC announces leadership workshop on campus mental health issues
Later this fall, AUCC will hold a workshop for Canadian university leaders on addressing mental
health issues on campus. Scheduled for Wednesday, December 7 and Thursday morning, December
8, 2011 in Toronto, this event builds on the discussion among interested members moderated by
Daniel Woolf, principal of Queen’s University, at AUCC’s April meeting. It also follows on the heels
of a recent conversation I had with Senator Michael Kirby, chair of the board of the Mental Health
Commission of Canada, who has been visiting a number of Canadian campuses and who
approached me to discuss what more AUCC could do to foster dialogue among university
presidents on this pressing public policy concern.
The issue of mental health and its effects touches Canadian university students, staff and faculty. A
new Canada-U.S. study has found that one in four students comes to university health clinics with
symptoms of clinical depression and one in 10 had suicidal thoughts. Demand on student services
has risen significantly. At the April meeting, AUCC members agreed that more can be done to
catalyze a national conversation and response on this issue among university presidents. Workshop
development will be guided by an ad hoc program advisory committee of AUCC members and
senior university experts from across the country. AUCC will work closely with partners such as the
Council of Ontario Universities, the Canadian Association of College and University Counselling
Services, which will discuss an action plan with its members in June, and the Mental Health
Commission of Canada to build on existing efforts. The event will be open to interested executive
heads and vice-presidents, student affairs, and/or senior university representatives with related
responsibilities.

interested in participating.
Professional program for university presidents coming up
I am very pleased to announce that AUCC will be hosting the Professional Program for Presidents
of Canadian Universities in January 2012. The program, for university presidents in their first term,
is designed to enrich perspectives on the principal challenges facing presidents, and to explore key
issues that commonly confront presidents early in their mandates. Special sessions will be tailored to
meet the needs of program alumni, who are also invited to sessions on new topics of interest.
Starting in the evening of Sunday, January 22 and ending with lunch on Wednesday, January 25, the
program will provide formal and informal opportunities to discuss issues with each other and with
the experienced colleagues leading the sessions. Gilles Patry, former president of the University of
Ottawa and now president and CEO of the Canada Foundation for Innovation, has again agreed to
moderate.
Led by seasoned presidents, topics for new presidents will include:
• setting up the executive office and building the senior team
• academic leadership
• international leadership
• government and media relations
• branding, marketing and fundraising
• strategic and integrated planning
• governance issues and collective bargaining
• financial and risk management in challenging times
Sessions for program alumni will include working with your Board chair, what do when your Board
changes during your term, and presidential evaluation. The 2012 program will also incorporate a
session on the perspectives gained by program alumni since their appointments.
New executive heads are invited to block their calendars for the full program from January 22-25,
2012, while program alumni and executive heads in their first term are invited to block their
calendars from Sunday, January 22 to Tuesday, January 24, 2012 when the new topics will be
discussed and lessons learned in your first years of the presidency shared.
