Education Council

Education Council was created in 1995, as required by amendments to the College and Institute Act, 1994. The purpose of this legislation was to increase participation by students, staff, faculty, and administrators in governance of the institution, by creating a system of institutional governance similar to the type of governance found in Canadian universities. The College of New Caledonia had initiated a concept of governance similar to Education Council in 1991. Academic Council, as it was known, had a similar composition and set of responsibilities as the present Education Council. CNC's Academic Council was often noted as a successful practice during the provincial discussions leading to the formal establishment of Education Councils.
