Governance and Charter

St. Stephen's governs itself with a joint governance structure. The Board of Governors has authority for business governance and the Academic Senate has authority for academic governance. The governance model used by St. Stephen's is that of Shared Governance. While senior authority rests with the Board of Governors, they and the Academic Senate rely on effective structures, and inclusive dialogue to ensure that the College honours its vision, mission, and values while complying with legislative requirements.
