Name of creator
The Director of Planning position was created in ca. 1990 with Dr. Barbara Samuels as the Director. The Director of Planning provided support in the areas of project management, co-ordinator, advisor, research, facilitator, representative and communicator for the Vice-President (Academic). The position also included planning responsibilities for the University's academic policies and priorities, new program development, strategic planning and improvement. Some of the projects the Director developed and implemented were the Universal Student Ratings of Instruction, Key Performance Indicator reporting, benchmarking, space allocation, development of joint degrees, liaison with educational institutions, Post-Degree Continuous Learning and the Learning Commons. In December 1999, the position was redefined as the Special Assistant to the Vice-President (Academic) External Academic Relations.
The records were initially transferred to the Archives as a VP(A) accession. When it was decided to create a new fonds for the Director of Planning, however, the records were redefined as such.

Fonds consists of records pertaining to accountability, performance indicators, the annual report system, various academic programs, and the media centre; task force records regarding early retirement and the Nickle Arts Museum; and other administrative records.
