The Executive Committee met to discuss the agenda for the January 29, 2010 meeting of Erindale College Council.

On behalf of the Resource Planning and Priorities Committee, Prof. Reisz reported that the committee had met on January 18, 2010. The Committee considered the ancillary budgets and financial plans of conference, food, parking and residence for 2010-11 and after a full discussion of their merits, recommended them to Erindale College Council for approval. The budgets and their corresponding management reports can be accessed in their entirety through the meeting agenda posted on the ECC website.

The Committee also considered and approved a proposal from the Dean on the renewal of the Institute of Communication and Culture. The proposal is attached hereto as Appendix A

Professor Lange reported that the Academic Affairs Committee met on January 18, 2010. The Committee heard a follow up report from the Registrar on revising the curriculum/calendar template to make it more user-friendly. The template will be revised by August, in time for the 2010 curriculum review process. Users and AAC members were invited by both the Registrar and the Chair of AAC to submit their comments about the template to the Registrar. Ms. Crocker also updated members on the printing of the calendar, an issue that had been discussed at a previous meeting. The calendar will still be printed in hardcopy and provided to all new students, but will no longer be printed for High School distribution. Of course the calendar will be available to everyone online. The Committee also considered and approved the proposal from the Dean on the renewal of the Institute of Communication and Culture.

Be it resolved,
THAT the Executive Committee approve the CCT Renewal proposal, which was recommended by the Resource Planning and Priorities and the Academic Affairs Committees and forward it to Erindale College Council for approval. (I. Orchard/R. Reisz)

The motion was approved.

The Vice-President and Principal noted that as part of his regular presentation to Council, he would report on the Mississauga Job Summit, the University Fund and the appointment of the new Vice-President and Principal.
The Executive Committee meeting adjourned at 2:55 p.m.
