Introduction to the Board of Governors
The Board of Governors consists of eleven members as follows: The Chancellor, the President of the University, five members appointed by the Lieutenant-Governor-in Council, two members elected by the Senate, one student, and one member elected by faculty. It elects its own Chair and Vice-Chair from among its members. Under The University of Saskatchewan Act, (1995), the Board is responsible for overseeing and directing all matters respecting the management, administration and control of the university's property, revenues and financial affairs
The Board of Governors meets approximately six times a year. Following each meeting, a report of the meeting is posted on the meeting schedule page. This report is intended for the university and its community as an informative and unofficial summary of the matters discussed by the board, and includes a brief explanation of each agenda item. The formal record of every meeting is contained in the official minutes, which include the exact wording of each motion considered by the board and the disposition of such motions (including abstentions), and which are normally approved at the next regular meeting of the board.
