Committee Terms of Reference

Red Deer Polytechnic has a number of committees as part of our institution's governance. The work of each committee facilitates our institution's core business of learning, as well as other important operations. Committees consist of representatives from the Polytechnic's senior administration team, faculty, staff and students who all participate in discussion and decision-making. Red Deer Polytechnic also welcomes the perspective of individuals from surrounding communities who participate in some committees.
