The government, management and control of the university and University College and their property, revenues, business and affairs are vested in the council.
The chancellor and the president are ex officio members. Two members are appointed by the president from among the officers of the university, its federated universities and the federated and affiliated colleges. Sixteen members who are neither students, administrative nor teaching staff are appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. Twelve members are elected by and from the teaching staff. In addition, eight members are chosen, as follows: four elected by and from among the full-time undergraduate students, two elected by and from among the graduate students and two elected by and from among the part-time undergraduates. Another two members are elected by and from among the administrative staff, and finally, eight members who are neither students, administrative nor teaching staff are elected by and from among the alumni. The council elects a chair and a vice-chair annually from among the appointees of the Lieutenant Governor in Council.
Members appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council serve a three year term. They are eligible for reappointment, but may not serve continuously for more than nine years. However, a member is again eligible for appointment one year after the expiry date of the ninth consecutive year. A member of the council holds office until a successor is appointed. When a member is unable to serve, a new member is appointed to serve for the remainder of the unexpired term.
- Members are expected to attend the regular meetings held on the third Thursday of each month from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and serve on at least one standing committee that would meet once a month for about three hours. If a member serves on the executive committee, another half-day a month is required.
