Education Council Subcommittees

Northern Light’s College has joined the tradition of other institutions in setting up Policy and Curriculum Subcommittees to assist Education Council in its mandate.

The subcommittees are constituted similarly to Education Council in their representativeness and breadth of knowledge.
Students, staff, faculty, and administration provide their time to advise on new and revised educational policy and curriculum, and then report to the Education Council their recommendations. At the subcommittee level there is a less formal opportunity for discussion leading to revisions which ultimately enhance the educational quality of policy and curriculum. The Terms of Reference outline in more detail these principles and procedures. Thank you for your interest in Education Council’s Subcommittees.
