The University Secretariat works to ensure that the two governing bodies of the University (Board of Trustees and Senate) and their numerous committees operate effectively and efficiently by providing administrative services, research and analysis, and general support. The Secretariat Office also maintains corporate records and is a resource for members of the University community, providing information and counsel on Senate and Board of Trustees policies, procedures, precedents and records.
The University Secretariat also has primary responsibility for the administration of the University’s obligations under Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) and advises the University community on privacy and access to information. In addition, the Secretariat is responsible for overseeing the University’s policy management framework and maintains official copies of all administrative University policies.
