Scope and content

The University of St. Michael's College is a University in its own right, as established by the USMC Act (2005) It is therefore governed by two bodies: the Collegium and the Senate. The Collegium governs the affairs of the University, including the safeguarding of the property and the funds of the University. Collegium was established by the University of St. Michael's College Act (1958). More information, including Collegium by-laws can be found on the St. Michael's College website: .

The Collegium fonds consists of records reflecting the business and activities of the Collegium governing body, including meeting minutes, reports, financial records and reports, hiring decisions, and property agreements.

Minutes from 1958-2007 are kept separate from the records of the Office of the President. Many records relating to the business of Collegium, as conducted by the President, are therefore part of the Office of the President fonds.

Minutes from 2007 onward, as well of records from Collegium business, have been kept within the records of the office of origin, the Office of the President. Minutes from 2007 onward are available digitally.
