At the January 30 meeting of the SEMG, Ann Tierney, the Vice-Provost and Dean of Student Affairs, and Brenda Brouwer, the Vice-Provost and Dean of the School of Graduate Studies, provided a detailed explanation of how planning in their offices anticipates changes in enrolment. Needs are identified and capacity is adjusted in many areas, including Athletics and Recreation, Health, Counselling and Disability Services, QUIC, Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre, Residences, Career Services, Academic Learning Services, Financial Aid and Student Support.
The meeting's agenda also included reports from SEMG Faculty representatives on plans for distance offerings and programming. There was not enough time to hear reports from all Faculties, and the remaining reports will be the first item of business for the SEMG's next meeting, which is on February 13. The primary purpose of this next meeting will be to discuss and endorse the SEMG's report on enrolment plans for 2013-2014,2014-2015 and 2015-2016, which will then be submitted to SCAD in March, and Senate in April.
