Name of creator
The University's structure (established initially by The Universities Act of 1966 and updated by the Post-Secondary Learning Act of 2004) is bi-cameral. The two governing bodies are the Board of Governors and the General Faculties Council. The Board of Governors is the corporate body of the University responsible for the property of the University and its financial affairs. It appoints officers and employees of the University, establishes salary scales, appoints the President, and gives final approval to the operating and capital budgets of the University. It consists of the chairperson, Chancellor, President of the University and other persons appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. When first established in 1966 there were eleven other persons appointed, two of which were alumni association members, one senate member and two academic staff members. The first meeting of the Board of Governors of the University of Calgary was held on August 16, 1966. Prior to this, the management and development of the institution had been overseen by the Board of Governors, University of Alberta at Calgary.
By 1982 other additions were two students, one graduate student and eight other persons. Frederick Clarence Manning was the first chair of the Board of Governors (1966-1967). Subsequent incumbents have been Leroy Allan Thorssen (1967-1970); Maclean Everett Jones (1970-1972); Carl Olof Nickle (1972-1974); Dr. Gordon Cummings Swann (1974-1975); Ross Anderson MacKimmie (1975-1984); Robert A. Wilson (1984-1990); Richard Haskayne (1990-1996); Ted Newall (1996-2001); Brian F. MacNeill (2001-2007) and Jack Perraton (2007-). In 1994, the offices of the Board of Governors and the General Faculties Council were combined into one administrative unit known as the University Secretariat.
