Governance Structure

The University of Lethbridge governs itself with a bi-cameral governance structure, as set out in the Alberta Post-Secondary Learning Act. The Board of Governors has authority for business governance and the General Faculties Council (GFC) has authority for academic governance. The Senate is also defined within the Post-Secondary Learning Act, and it is the duty of a Senate to inquire into any matter that might benefit the university and enhance its position in the community.
