Academic Council

The Academic Council is duly established by the Post Secondary Learning Act, 2003 (effective May 4, 2017). One must exist for each College with membership being equally allocated between Board, faculty and student representatives. The Post Secondary Learning Act provides general guidelines and constitutions for individual Councils appropriate for local development and review of academic policy and procedures. Olds College Academic Council was established 7, December, 1978.

While technically Academic Council is not a standing committee of the Board, its significance to College affairs is such to warrant identification as part of the Board structure. The mandate and procedures for Academic Council are housed in the Council’s Constitution. This Constitution is a document agreed upon between the constituent groups, Board, faculty and students.
