9:00 AM - 11:00 AM Senate Academic Planning Committee (SAPC)
The Senate Academic Planning Committee makes recommendations to Senate on all
matters related to the overall direction of academic programs at Laurier. This includes: adapting and modifying the overall university plan as required; responding to specific requests (from the Board of Governors or from the Ministry) to articulate a Laurier niche or position relative to a current situation or need; responding to requests from Faculties and units to initiate new programs, modify current programs, or cancel them; considering the financial implications of maintaining all academic programs; and dealing with questions of policy that govern scholarships, bursaries and awards.

As part of this broad mandate, SAPC oversees the program review and approval process run by the University under the Ontario Universities’ Council on Quality Assurance, managed by the Ontario Council of Academic Vice-Presidents.

In general, its role is to offer to Senate a considered conceptualization of where the University is, in what direction it should be heading, and what needs to be undertaken to accomplish this.

The agenda will be posted approximately one week in advance of the meeting and approved minutes will follow once approved at the subsequent meeting. Full agenda packages can be accessed by staff and faculty on Laurier Connect.

For questions or concerns please contact Sarah McLellan.

  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Opening reception for Lost & Found exhibit

    The Robert Langen Art Gallery and the Laurier Library invite you to the opening reception for the Lost & Found exhibit, featuring artists Susan Coolen, Agnes Niewiadomski and Paul Roorda. Absolutely everyone is welcome.

    The three Lost & Found installations can be found on floors four to six in the Laurier Library and will be available for viewing from Sept. 1, 2019 to Aug. 1, 2020.

    Lost & Found

    The assemblage of found objects into creative acts that function as new meaning can be traced back to the 16th century, with the popularity of Cabinets of Curiosities. These collections of rare or unusual objects were displayed to tell stories about the oddities of the natural world. By the 1900s, this aesthetic quality moved into the art practice of artists such as Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Salvador Dali, and later, artists Tony Cragg, Tracey Emin and Danh Vo, among many others. Lost & found explores this concept by dissolving the conventional understanding of ordinary objects to form unexpected narratives that challenge viewers to think critically. Collectively, artists Susan Coolen, Agnes Niewiadomski and Paul Roorda have heightened the pleasure of looking and invite us to question how stories can be told.

    The Library is committed to providing programs, events and services that are accessible to all. Please contact us if you require accommodation due to a disability.

  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Opening reception for Written Upon Leaves exhibit

    It is with great pleasure that the Robert Langen Art Gallery (RLAG) invites you to an exhibition called Written Upon Leaves by Lana Filippone. We look forward to seeing you all!

    Written Upon Leaves is a journey into the mythological, spiritual and ecological narratives that are preserved in the legacy of plant knowledge. Through the relationships between natural history and folklore Filippone tells stories of persistence, indifference and perpetual life. This exhibit will be in the gallery from Oct. 14 to Nov. 22, 2019. Absolutely everyone is welcome.
