Governance

The MA program in Public Policy and Administration is a Department-based program housed in the Department of Politics and Public Administration, although faculty from several Departments / Schools are active in the program.

The principal governance document is a bylaw that is adopted by the Program Council, the Dean of Arts, the Yeates School of Graduate Studies Program Council, and the Senate of the University.

The bylaw establishes a Program Council, sets out its membership (Article 3) and sets out the composition and mandate of a number of Standing Committees (Article 8).  Below is the structure mandated by the bylaw, showing the names of those holding each position.
