Professional activities: Council of Ontario Universities

The Council of Ontario Universities (COU) was formed on December 3, 1962 as the “Committee of Presidents of Provincially Assisted Universities and Colleges of Ontario,” with its current name being adopted in 1971. The mandate of the COU is to “build awareness of the university sector’s contributions to the social, economic and cultural well-being of the province and the country, as well as the issues that impact the sector’s ability to maximize these contributions.” It works with Ontario’s publicly assisted universities and one associate member institution, the Royal Military College of Canada. This series documents the activities of a number of its committees and task forces, which are detailed below, approximately in order of activity.

Professor Lang was a member of the COU’s Committee on Enrolment Statistics and Projections from 1976 to 1990. In 1982-1983 he sat on its Special Committee on BILD Administrative Procedures and from 1987 to 1991 was a member of its Research Advisory Group. In 1991 he was invited to be part of a small task force to present proposals to the government for an income contingent repayment plan for Ontario students. Throughout much of the 1990s, he was involved with the COU’s Committee on University Accountability and the Performance Indicators for the Public Postsecondary System in Ontario project, better known as the Performance Indicators Project, the purpose of which was to assess the overall Ontario postsecondary sector.

He was also a member of four task forces: Audit Guidelines (1998-2000), Secondary School Issues (1998-2005), Student Financial Assistance (2006-), and Quality Assurance (2008-2010).
The Task Force on Secondary School Issues was established to assess the evaluation of students in the new secondary school program of studies and to make recommendations regarding the monitoring of grading practices and standards.

The COU’s Quality and Productivity Task Force work was to outline “all the quality and productivity initiatives” undertaken to “showcase results for the government’s increased investment in universities.” Its report, presented in March 2006, was followed by the COU Task Force on Quality Measurements, chaired by David Naylor of the University of Toronto. It was charged with addressing the “broad issues related to quality measurement, developing the long-term strategies for COU’s work with the government and the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO).” [1]

Files in B2018-0001 include correspondence with U of T and COU colleagues, as well as further records related to his role on the COU’s Committee on University Accountability. Also included are further records about the COU's Task Force on Quality Assurance (2008-2010), including its subsequent transition and implementation phase.

The files in this series contain correspondence, memoranda, notes, minutes of meetings, drafts of reports, and assorted background reports and other documentation.

Professional activities: Ontario. Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities

Professor Lang’s first major collaboration with the then Ministry of Colleges and Universities began in 1991 when he was a member of the Minister’s Task Force on University Accountability. Later he was involved in several joint projects with the Ministry and its successors [the Ministry of Education and Training (from 1995) and from 2000, the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities] and the Council of Ontario Universities; in particular, their Steering Committee on Ontario Graduate Survey (1997-), their Joint Steering Committee on OSAP (1998-2001), and their Key Performance Indicators project (2000-2005). In 2006 he became a member of the Ministry’s Joint Working Group on Student Access Guarantee. From 2008 to 2011 he was the Ministry’s Working Group and Steering Committee on Transfer. Not all of these activities are documented in this series.

In 2006-2007 the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities undertook two inter-related research projects “aimed generally at learning about the characteristics of ‘first-generation’ students.” The first, “College Choice”, focused on the factors that influenced students in seeking post-secondary education and their choices of institutions to attend. The second, dubbed Project STAR (Student Achievement and Retention), “sought to determine the factors that influence the academic performance and retention of students in the first year of university.” It was sponsored by the Canada Millenium Scholarship Foundation and Statistics
Canada.

Files in B2018-0001 document Professor Lang's role as Special Advisor to the Deputy Minister, in particular his involvement with the negotiations between the Government of Ontario and Ontario universities regarding the second Strategic Mandate Agreement (SMA2), and Ontario colleges regarding the Colleges Applied Research and Development Fund [CARDF].

Also included are files regarding the creation of a francophone university in Ontario; the Joint Working Group on Student Access Guarantee, regarding the modernization of the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP); and the Steering Committee on Transfer Credits.

Publishing and talks

This series documents a small selection of academic papers and talks published or given by Prof. Armatage throughout her career. Files can contain edited typescripts, correspondence, e-mail and readers’ reports. There are two files of her published reviews and a file with copies of some of her magazine contributions. Additionally, there are records relating to her book The Girl From God’s Country: Nell Shipman and the Silent Cinema (University of Toronto Press, 2003). These include research notes, correspondence and a copy of the manuscript.

Publishing projects

This series includes records created and collected while editing and/or writing literary works. Files contain correspondence with publishers and often with the authors of the original work. There is also correspondence relating to primary sources and with other academics or people familiar with the work being edited as well as with contributors. Files also contain research notes, bibliographies, reviews, publishing contracts and draft manuscripts.

Of particular note is correspondence with poet James Reaney along with his originally designed Christmas cards from him and his wife Colleen Thibaudeau. Early correspondence relates to his book Poems edited by Germaine Warkentin in 1972 but continues well into the 1990s and is often of a personal nature. Photographs of James Reaney at John Warkentin’s retirement party can be found in B2002-0006/001P (01).

In 1976 Uof T Press reprinted The White Savannahs by W.E. Collin as part of the series Literature in Canada: Poetry and Prose in Reprint. Warkentin wrote the introduction and in doing so corresponded with Collin as well as with poets Al Purdy, Leo Kennedy, A.J.M Smith, Frank Scott and Dorothy Livesay.

In 2001 Warkentin’s edited work Decentring the Renaissance: Canada and Europe in multidisciplinary perspective, 1500-1700 was published. This book was based on papers presented at a conference in 1976, organized by Warkentin and sponsored by the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies at Victoria College. Records in this series document the conference along with the subsequent publication and include files on funding, correspondence with contributors, readers and the publisher.

Warkentin was also involved in the publishing project, The History of the Book in Canada. Included is correspondence, reports, drafts and planning documents.

Questionnaire

They do not comprise the whole of Professor Fuss’ research projects, published or not. The paper files contain the applications, covering correspondence, and reports. The arrangement is chronologically by project.

Professor Fuss’ compact disc #3, titled ‘Research’, contains a large number of files on research projects, arranged by folder, sub-folders and files. Where the results were published, files that could be were printed out and filed in Series 8: Manuscripts and publications. Some files were also printed out and placed in Series 1: Correspondence. Only files that could not be printed, or where formatting made tables and mathematical formulae incomprehensible, or the files were extremely long, are listed.

There also research files on compact disc #5 [‘Professor Fuss’ e-mail’].

Research projects

Most of the files in this series relate to the ‘College Choice’ project, the first study in Canada of “the effects of surveys on students as they make choices among colleges.” It was based on “a series of surveys carried out at the University of Toronto from the late 1970s and on a series or surveys and interviews of students and guidance counselors in four or five Toronto high schools with different student populations.” The files contain correspondence; compact discs of data sets, reports, and associated material; “catchment samples” and participant dossiers; data analysis and drafts of reports. Files on several other research projects follow. Research projects for which Professor Lang received external funding and which are not included in this series are listed in his curriculum vitae in B2011-0003/001 (01).

Teaching files

This series focuses on Professor Fuss’ teaching career, almost entirely at the University of Toronto, though there are three files on courses he taught at Harvard University between 1969 and 1972. The files contain memoranda and correspondence, notes, course outlines, lecture notes, problem sets, questions for tests and examinations, and some anonymous course evaluations. References to student marks have not been retained. This portion of the series ends with a number of electronic files.

At Harvard Professor Fuss taught principles and the economics of regulation at the undergraduate level and industrial organization, introductory econometrics, advanced econometrics, and microeconomic theory at the graduate level. The surviving files in this series are for the undergraduate course on business organization and public policy and the untitled graduate courses 2210A and 2240A.

The series continues with courses given at the Erindale campus and the St. George campus of the University of Toronto. At the undergraduate level he taught courses in microeconomic theory, industrial organization, econometrics, and economics of regulation. At the graduate level he taught microeconomics theory and econometrics. Included in these are lecture notes given to Professor Fuss by Daniel McFadden at the University of California, Berkeley (where Fuss took his doctorate), and Dale Jorgensen at Harvard University.

Most of the files are in paper format, but there are some electronic files, partly in the form of e-mail. The arrangement is by course number within each institution.
