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 (other)

This series documents professional activities other than those described in the two previous series.

Of the last, the most documentation is on the Ontario Council on University Affairs, the Premier’s Council for Economic Renewal, and the Sweden/Ontario Bilateral Exchange Seminar for Senior Academic Administrators (1982-1983). The arrangement in this section is by name of organization or event.

The files may contain any combination of correspondence, memoranda, minutes of meetings, notes, and reports.

Files from B2018-0001 include further records documenting Lang’s active involvement with the Board of Trustees of the Toronto School of Theology (2008 - ; Chair, Institutional Evaluations Committee, 2014-2017) and the Board of Governors of Saint Augustine’s Seminary. His work as Chair of the Strategic Asset Study Committee (2011-2014) for the Archdiocese of Toronto is also documented.

Canadian Foundation for Innovation

In 1997 Dr. Evans was appointed first chair of the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, an independent corporation established by the Government of Canada for facilitate research.

The files on the activities of the Board of Directors include correspondence, minutes of meetings, files on consultants, financial services, legal and tax issues, and other activities such as conferences and surveys. These are followed by files on the Audit and Finance Committee and the Governance and Nominating Committee. Most of the remaining files focus on the death of president and Chief executive officer Keith Brimacombe and the search for and selection of his successor, David Strangway.

MaRS (Medical and Related Science Research District)

Three years after assuming the chair of the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, Dr. Evans became a moving force behind the creation of the Medical and Related Science Research District (MaRS) in Toronto.

The series begins with files on the creation of MaRS (initially Toronto Biotechnology Commercialization Centre), followed by meetings (board, planning, marketing, etc.) and associated correspondence, notes and reports, including corporate presentations, arranged chronologically. The volume of correspondence increases from mid-2003 and one of the meetings documented in detail is with the Minster of Health. Reproductions of photographs are incorporated into some of the reports and presentations.

In this series the researcher will find correspondence, largely but not exclusively of a professional nature, including letters on Professor Falls’ teaching, research, writing and getting his work into print. There are also some letters relating to administrative activities at the University of Toronto and others documenting his activities in professional organizations, including some requests for speaking engagements. At the end of the series are a number of files of letters on refereed grant applications and project evaluations, along with letters of reference arranged alphabetically.

Teaching files and lecture notes

Professor Falls kept detailed lecture notes throughout his career, along with supporting course outlines, memoranda, correspondence, notes, test and examination questions, and appraisals of his students work both in the classroom and in field work. For the latter, songagrams are often included in the files on bird songs and field notes are usually present; there are also a few detailed research reports by students. Selected student essays have also been retained.

The arrangement of the files in this series is chronological within each course number as laid out in the ‘Biology’ and ‘Zoology’ sections of the Faculty of Arts (later Arts and Science) calendars and the School of Graduate Studies calendars. The main exceptions are lecture notes that cover broad areas and thus more than one course and lectures delivered by individuals other than Falls himself. Most of the zoology courses relate to some aspect of ecology. The most thoroughly documented course is ZOO 223 (ecology) which became ZOO 323 (animal ecology) in 1974.

Alpha/numeric courses, ie. 1a to 3z, are general undergraduate courses and single and double digit courses, ie. 4 to 31, are honours courses. With the revamping of the curriculum in the late 1960s a new system of course numbers was introduced, BIO 100, ZOO 200, etc. followed often by letters such as F (fall term), S (spring term),Y (full year) and H (summer course).
