The university functions under the authority of the Postsecondary Learning Act and operates under a shared governance structure between the Board of Governors (Board) and the General Faculties Council (GFC).

Although the Board has the ultimate authority, the Board and GFC share and balance power within the university. The Board has senior oversight of the institution and concerns itself with long-range planning and business affairs. General Faculties Council is responsible for the academic affairs of the University.

The Office of University Governance at MacEwan houses the operations of the Board of Governors and the General Faculties Council, and is responsible for the effective operation and administration of the university’s governance structure.
