Established by statute in 1874, University Council serves as both an advisory and an ambassadorial body to the University as a whole and is responsible for the election of the Chancellor.  Although it is not directly involved in governance, the Council may bring to the Senate or Board of Trustees any matter that it believes affects Queen's well-being and prosperity.
