50.3 Annual Review of Targets

1.     In the Fall of each year, the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) will report for information to ASC, APC, GFC and the Board of Governors the minimum admission averages and the actual enrolment in individual Faculties compared with Faculty targets for that year.

2.     In order to effectively manage overall enrolment for the following year, each Fall the Provost and Vice-President (Academic), the Registrar and the Dean of each Faculty will review and adjust as necessary the Faculty?s enrolment target. Once the Faculty target is established, the Dean will provide the Office of the Registrar and Student Awards with individual program targets to facilitate the Admission process.

3.     In cases where changes in enrolments over one or more years result in variations of more than 5% from a Faculty?s enrolment target given in 50.2, the Faculty concerned will submit a statement to APC including:

a.     the reasons for the changes;

b.     a statement of the impact of the changes on relevant aspects of available human, physical and financial resources;

c.     the effect of the changes on the Faculty and other academic units including the library; and

d.     recommendations concerning how the Faculty intends to respond to the changes. 

APC will then make a determination as to whether the Faculty?s target should be changed.

4.     Each Fall, the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research will, in cooperation with Deans and/or Department Chairs, develop an annual target and projections for graduate enrolment for the following year and report this to the Provost and Vice-President (Academic), Deans/Department Chairs, the Office of the Registrar and Student Awards, and the Office of Budget and Statistics.
