Administrative history

The Universities Coordinating Council was created with the Universities Act of 1966. It consists of representatives from each Alberta university: the President and Vice-President (Academic), two Deans, two academic staff members appointed by the General Faculties Council, and three academic staff members appointed by the Coordinating Council. The Council can inquire, investigate, recommend and advise on any matter that affects all the members; it can set the terms of affiliation with colleges and entrance requirements from colleges to the universities. The Council also has authority over the administration of professional examinations. The University Act, as revised in 1910, provided the University of Alberta with the power to arrange with the incorporated professional associations or societies in the province which had the legislated right to prescribe examinations for candidates applying for registration in such societies, to administer and conduct the examinations, appoint examiners, and report results to the societies. Any incorporated professional society could apply for such arrangements, or administer its own examinations and accreditation procedures. Between 1942 and 1955 the responsibility for overseeing the examinations was held by the General Faculties Council at the University; between 1955 and1966 GFC delegated this authority to the Board of Examiners of each profession. The substantial reorganization of higher education under the Universities Act of 1966 created the Universities Coordinating Council, which received jurisdiction over the conditions of entrance to cooperating learned professions and callings.
