Under The University of Saskatchewan Act, (1995), Council is responsible for overseeing and directing the academic affairs of the University and has the authority to authorize the establishment or disestablishment of any college, department, or institute, and to provide for the University’s affiliation or federation with any educational institution. Council also sets academic programs and standards for academic performance, determines enrollment quotas, and recommends to the President and the Board on budgetary matters and capital expenditures or any other matters that Council considers to be in the interests of the University.
Council meets once a month (Sept. – June), and meetings are open to all members of the University community.
