The School’s administrative governance structure deeply intersects with its academic governance structure. The Dean is both an academic and administrative officer. He is supported by various administrative structures, including Operating Committee and Management Committee. The very important base of our administrative governance structure, however, consists of the Areas. Schulich has two types of areas:
- Functional areas, such as MKTG or ORGS, and
- Cross-functional areas, such as HIMP or ENTR (note that these are not programs).
The functional areas are headed by an Area Chair and house most of the tenure stream faculty, many of whom teach and research across the traditional boundaries of their areas. They may teach in both their functional and a cross-functional area, or courses highly specific to a particular program. The cross-functional areas are headed by Specialization Directors. A look at the responsibilities of Area Chairs and Specialization Directors shows how similar those positions are:
- Responsible for overseeing the curricular development of the functional or industry-specific or special-topic offerings
- Responsible for managing the tenure stream and contractual faculty
- Responsible for staffing the core and required/non-required elective courses offered by the area/specialization
This is where the matrix structure of our organization comes in — programs (including cross-functional areas) supplying the demand for teaching resources (faculty members) and areas (and cross-functional areas and, sometimes, programs) supplying these teaching resources.
Functional and cross-functional areas, however, have no formal decision making power in terms of curriculum. While proposals for courses, specializations/fields or programs often emanate from the areas, approval flows through the academic governance structure (Program Committee, Faculty Council, FGS for graduate proposals and Senate).
Schulich has the following functional and cross-functional areas (the latter are marked with an asterisk).
