Established in 1971 by the Governing Council which oversees the affairs of the University of Toronto, the College of Electors is responsible for electing the University’s Chancellor and the eight alumni members of the Governing Council. The 47 College members are elected or appointed by U of T’s alumni associations and serve a four-year term that begins on July 1. College members must acquaint themselves with how the Governing Council and its Boards and Committees function and what is required from its alumni governors.
The College of Electors meets five times a year for two hours. Victoria has three representatives on the College of Electors. Currently they are Diane Dyer Vic 6T2 and John Richardson Vic 7T1 and David Bernhardt Vic 5T8.
