The Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT), a newly incorporated body dedicated to facilitating and supporting academic collaboration and the development of more seamless student mobility among Ontario’s publicly funded colleges and universities, seeks student representatives to serve on the inaugural Board of Directors.
The eleven-member Board is composed of a President and two Vice-Presidents Academic from each post-secondary sector; two student members who have experienced postsecondary transfer, one from the college sector and one from the university sector; one graduate of a college or university who has experienced postsecondary transfer; and two external members, one of whom will have experience as a senior administrator in an Ontario secondary school board.
This volunteer position provides an opportunity to participate in policy development, project planning and research related to postsecondary collaboration and student transfer between and within the college and university sectors in Ontario in order to optimize postsecondary opportunities for students and reduce duplication of prior learning. There is no compensation associated with membership on the ONCAT Board; however, members will receive reimbursement for expenses incurred when they attend Board meetings or engage in other Board business. We anticipate that there will be approximately six Board meetings per year and there may be some additional work associated with ONCAT activities or with committees.
Applications are sought from university students who have transferred from a certificate, diploma or advanced diploma program at an Ontario college to a degree program at an Ontario university.
