The Executive Committee met to set the agenda for the April 5, 2012 meeting of Erindale College Council.

The report of the February 29, 2012 meeting of the Executive Committee was approved as circulated.

Professor Bailey reported that noted that at its last meeting RPPC received an extensive report from the Chief Administrative Officer on the 2012-13 budget as well as a capital projects update.  Professor Bailey suggested that since the budget provided the financial status of UTM and how UTM fit into the entire university context, would be of great interest to ECC members.  It was agreed that the CAO would repeat his RPPC report on the UTM budget at the upcoming meeting of Council.

Professor Woolridge reported that the Academic Affairs committee approved the Professional Skills Development Program in the Department of Management without any concerns.  This transcript notation should be forwarded to ECC for final approval.  In addition, the AAC also fulfilled its monitorial responsibilities, by receiving the annual reports for 2010-11 of the following areas:  Committee on Standing, Academic Appeals Board, Academic Integrity, Research, Reviews of Academic Units and Departments, and the Library.  It was agreed that these reports should be made available to ECC members by posting them on the ECC website and linking them into the ECC agenda.  It was discussed that the Dean’s report on the reviews of academic units and departments may be of broader interest to members and it was agreed that she would be asked to present a summarized version of her report to ECC.

It was agreed that the Chair would announce the upcoming Governance Review Town Hall, which was scheduled for April 12, 2012 (3:00 p.m., in the Council Chamber) and that Professor Daniere, Chair of the Governance Review Committee would be asked to provide an update on the committee’s work to ECC.
