Thoughtful leadership.

 The authority to operate as a public post-secondary institution and an undergraduate university is granted to Grant MacEwan University through the Post-secondary Learning Act (PSLA). The university is governed by a bicameral governance structure with shared authorities between the Board of Governors (Board) and the General Faculties Council (GFC).


Generally, while the Board has oversight of the institution and focuses upon long-range planning and business affairs, the GFC, subject to the authority of the Board, is responsible for the academic affairs of the University. The day-to-day operations of the University are delegated to the President and Vice-Chancellor, and the Office of University Governance manages the logistics of both the Board and the GFC.
