50.4 Changing Established Enrolment Targets

From time to time, the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) or Deans, in consultation with each other, may reallocate spaces between programs within the Faculty or alter existing targets in response to new, shifting or reduced resources and/or demands.

1.     In cases where spaces are reallocated within an existing target, no approval beyond the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) is necessary.  Such changes must be made in consultation with any affected academic units including the library.  Written notification should be provided to the Provost and Vice-President (Academic), the Registrar and the Office of Budget and Statistics.

2.     In cases where proposed changes result in variations of more than 5% from a Faculty's existing overall enrolment target, the Faculty concerned or the Provost and Vice-President (Academic), as appropriate, will submit a statement to APC including:

a.     the reasons for the proposed changes;

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

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

3.     APC, following consultation with the Faculty concerned or the Provost and Vice-President (Academic), will either forward the proposal and its attendant recommendation to GFC, attaching any observations deemed appropriate, or will refer the proposal back to the originating unit for further review.

4.     GFC, after considering the proposal, will forward the proposal and its attendant recommendation to the Board of Governors for its review.
