Name of creator
The first meeting of the Academic Planning Committee (APC) was held in September, 1966. The predecessors of this Committee were the Calgary Campus Planning Committee (1963-1964) and the University Planning Committee (UPC) (1964-1966). After the University was granted autonomy, the Academic Planning Committee became the main body that addressed the academic development of the University. The APC had seven members including the Director of Campus Planning and the Vice-President (Academic) who was designated as Chair. The first members in 1966 were W.R. Trost (Senator and VP Academic), J.C. Cragg, I. Duncan (Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds), S.A. Lindstedt (Professor and Head of Curriculum and Instruction), H. Mitchell (Associatin Professor and Head of History), J.G. Nelson (Associate Professor and Head of Geography), B.G. Wilson (Professor of Physics). The terms of reference for the Academic Planning Committee were to prepare master plans for the academic development of the University and to recommend these plans to the General Faculty Council. The APC was also to review any proposals for new buildings before passing them to the Campus Planning Committee. The review process was seen as necessary in order to ensure the relevance of these buildings to academic plans. The Committee produced 10 reports on proposed long-range planning in anticipation of increased enrollment and university land development and expansion. In the fall of 1969, the Academic Planning Committee's task of institutional planning policy formulation was split between three new committees: Academic Policy Committee, Business and Finance Policy Committee and Capital Resources Policy Committee. The Academic Planning Committee's last meeting was in October, 1969. The Committee continued for a few months as a staff function and was officially dissolved by the General Faculty Council in February, 1970.
