The Academic Policy Committee was responsible for forming policies regarding the development of academic goals and plans; the development of the policy framework within which these goals and plans could be defined, priorities could be determined, alternative academic proposals assessed, and an academic plan developed; and the development and maintenance of projects of detailed academic policy. The Committee's predecessor was the Academic Planning Committee (1966-1969) whose responsibilities were split in 1969 into three separate Committees: Academic Policy, Business & Finance, Capital Resources Policy. Membership on the Academic Policy Committee included two lay members of the Board of Governors; six members from the General Faculties Council; two students; the Vice-President (Academic), who was the Committee's Executive Officer; the President; the Chairman of the Board; and the Academic Secretary, who was the Committee's secretary. The Committee was not a General Faculties Council or Board of Governors committee, but reported to the GFC in order to make recommendations, and to the BOG for information. Correlating academic policy with financial and physical resources was the responsibility of the Executive Officer of the APC working with the Executive Officers of the other two policy committees (Business & Finance, Capital Resources) through the President's Executive Advisory Committee. The Hickling-Johnson report of 1972 changed the structure of the three policy committees by redistributing some of the responsibilities among the Vice-Presidents. The final membership of these policy committees was modified so that the Executive Oficers (Vice-Presidents) and Chairs now sat on all three policy committees. The final meeting of the Academic Policy committee took place in January, 1975. In April, 1975 the Policy and Planning Committee was formed which effectively combined the Academic Policy, Business & Finance and Capital Resources Policy committees into one structure again.
