Governing Bodies

Algoma University is governed by two bodies: the Board of Governors and the University Senate.

The Board of Governors is comprised of between 12 and 30 individuals, and is responsible for the government, conduct, management, and control of the University and its property.

Representation on the Board includes:

  • The President of the University (appointed by the Board)
  • Three members appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council who are not students, members of the teaching staff, nor non-teaching employees of the University
  • One faculty member elected by faculty
  • One student (elected)
  • One non-teaching employee (elected)
  • members of the community

The University Senate is primarily responsible for academic programs and educational policy. All full-time members of the academic staff are members of the Senate, along with key administrative personnel, and representatives of part-time faculty, students, staff and communities associated with the University.  For more information about the University Senate, click here.

Members of both the Board of Governors and the University Senate are volunteers.
