Administrative history

The Senate of Mount Saint Vincent University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, was created in 1966 when Mount Saint Vincent College became Mount Saint Vincent University under Bill 85, granting the University a Charter. Some of the Committees that are now standing committees of Senate do predate Senate, such as the Student Affairs Committee and the Committee on Academic Policy and Planning. The Senate is responsible for the academic policy of the University and regulates the academic programs of the University. The size and membership of the Senate, and the terms of office of its members, are determined by the by-laws of the Senate, subject to Section 8 of the University Charter. Voting members are the President; the Academic Vice-president of the University; the Administrative Vice-president of the University; the Deans; the University Librarian; the Registrar; faculty members elected by the faculty; students elected by the students and such other persons as the Senate from time to time determines. The Chair of Senate is the University President. Senate meets on the last Monday of each month throughout the University session. These meetings are generally open to the University community, subject to limitations including special considerations of confidentiality. All Senate standing and ad-hoc committees report directly to Senate.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee is a sub-committee of the Committee on Academic Policy and Planning and reports to Senate through that Standing Committee. Referred to at various times as the Curriculum Committee (established in 1 965) and the Curriculum Sub-Committee, the committee's purpose is to serve as consultant and advisor to Senate on matters dealing with undergraduate curriculum. The membership of the
committee consists of the Dean of Professional Studies and the Dean of Arts and Science as alternating Chairpersons, the Registrar, two full-time members of faculty from each division and one faculty member at large, as well as one third or fourth-year student representative named by the Student Union.

Sub-series forms part of the Committee on Academic Policy and Planning series and consists of minutes, correspondence and background material created by the Curriculum Committee or Curriculum Sub-Committee (1979- 1989); and reports of the Curriculum Committee (1967- 1968) generated by the Committee when fulfilling the functions of reviewing and recommending to Senate in all matters of undergraduate degrees; serving as an advisory body to the various departments in areas involving undergraduate curriculum; recommending to the Senate qualifications for undergraduate degrees; and approving Distance Learning and Continuing Education non-credit programs. Sub-series also consists of minutes of meetings held by the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee with the Heads of various University departments (1965- 1967).
