The mandate of the council is to ensure that Camosun students are provided with quality educational experiences, and that Camosun graduates are recognized for their contemporary and relevant educational backgrounds. This mandate is enacted through two key responsibilities: establishing educational standards and advising the Board on educational policy.
What is Education Council?
The Education Council (commonly abbreviated as EdCo) is a legislated body established under the College and Institute Act. The purpose of the council is to provide leadership and decision-making for the College in the areas outlined in the College and Institute Act (Section 24), such as setting policies concerning examinations and evaluation of student performance, setting criteria for academic standing, academic standards and the grading system, and setting curriculum content for courses leading to certificates, diplomas or degrees.
The council also acts in an advisory role to the board as outlined in Section 23 of the Act, and has joint approval with the board in the area of articulation as outlined in Section 25 of the Act.
By far the greatest area of focus for the Education Council is in the area of curriculum approval. The Council has established curriculum standards and continually monitors that the standards are maintained. Camosun has an outstanding reputation for quality curriculum.
