Board of Governors


The Board of Governors of Dalhousie University is responsible for the overall conduct, management, administration and control of the property, revenue, business and affairs of the university. The basic responsibility of the board is to represent the interests of the university in directing its affairs and to do so within the statutes relating to Dalhousie University. 

The board carries out its responsibility through a stewardship role, and delegates the day-to-day management of the university to the president and the senior administration. The board also respects the responsibility of the university senate to adopt policies on academic matters subject to board approval.
