University Affairs Board Members of the DAB

• Current and former members of the University Affairs Board (UAB) and the Governing Council (GC) are canvassed to find out if they wish to serve on the DAB (or continue, if they are already members of the DAB).

• The Director, Appeals, Discipline and Faculty Grievances reviews the list of candidates.

• The candidates are recommended to the Striking Committee of the UAB and the Striking Committee considers the recommendations.

• The Striking Committee of the University Affairs Board makes recommendations to the UAB for appointment to the DAB.

• The UAB considers for approval the Striking Committee’s recommendations for appointments to the DAB.

• Appointment letters are mailed; the Director and/or Coordinator, Appeals Discipline and Faculty Grievances are copied.

Academic Board Members of the DAB

• Current members of the DAB are asked if they are interested in continuing to serve the DAB.

• Teaching staff who will be continuing members of the Academic Board in the upcoming year are asked to complete an online form in March-April, which contains a list of boards and committees on which they may to choose to serve.

• Information is extracted from the online form for use by the Striking Committee of the Academic Board.

• Teaching staff who select the Discipline Appeals Board as one of the governance bodies on which they would like to serve are considered for membership by the Striking Committee of the Academic Board.

• The Director of Appeals, Discipline and Faculty Grievances reviews the list of candidates before they are recommended to the Striking Committee.

• The Striking Committee of the Academic Board makes recommendations on teaching staff and student members of DAB.

• The Academic Board considers for approval the Striking Committee’s recommendations for appointments to the DAB at the final Board meeting each year.

• Appointment letters are mailed; the Director and/or Coordinator, Appeals Discipline and Faculty Grievances are copied.

*NOTE: There is no rule preventing a member of DAB from being a member of the University Tribunal, however, if there is an overlap, the individual will not sit on the same case at both levels.
