Scope and content

Subseries B.9 Scarborough College Council covers the years 1964 to 1993. Scarborough College Council (now called the Council of the University of Toronto Scarborough) creates and amends the by-laws that govern the business of Council and its committees. Council, as distinct from its committees, exercises its legislative and related powers by judging matters of broad policy at an early stage of development, establishing a system of committees that provide consultation on policy and related matters, and providing a means by which members of Council and its committees may monitor the implementation of policy. Following the opening of Scarborough College, the Council also oversaw the addition of new buildings (materials relating to the construction of the original buildings, designed by John Andrews, can be found in Series A. Governing Council). The subseries is divided into several categories for ease of organization:

• Chairman, which contains correspondence of the Council’s Chair;
• Governing Documents, which contains drafts and final copies of the constitution as well as by-laws;
• Elections, which contains minutes, nomination forms, memos and correspondence;
• Minutes, which contains agendas and minutes from Council meetings from 1964 to 1994 as well as indexes to these minutes;
• Committees, which contains an alphabetical filing of documentation generated by a wide variety of committees set up under the Council’s purview;
• Plans and Studies, which contains various campus master plans, capital plans, and planning reports;
• Scarborough College Residences, which contains a report on the addition of student housing;
