Board of Regents

The University of Winnipeg Act, passed by the Manitoba legislature, provides that governance of the University is shared between a Board of Regents and a Senate.  The Act sets out the roles, duties and powers of both governing bodies.

The Board of Regents determines overall policy for the University. This includes providing the administration with strategic direction and a broad framework of goals and objectives.

The Senate is responsible for the academic policy and practices of the University, faculty, staff and students. Examples of Senate responsibilities include curriculum development, setting academic standards. student appeals, and conferring of degrees

The University of Winnipeg Alumni Association is responsible for appointing or electing three alumni representatives to The University of Winnipeg Board of Regents.

The Board of Regents meets at least six times per year, and special meetings may be called from time to time. Meetings generally start at 5:30 p.m. Regents also sit on one standing committee, which meet approximately a week prior to each Board meeting.

The Alumni Association Council asks that one of the three Alumni Regents also reports at monthly Alumni Council meetings (on a rotating basis) and represents the interests of alumni.
