This committee is governed by the Undergraduate and Graduate Councils, with the participation of McMaster’s Centre for Continuing Education and overseen by the University Secretariat.
“As a proud alum of McMaster, I am honoured to serve one of our country’s finest learning institutions,” said Smoluk. “I have been extremely impressed with the University’s openness and inclusion. I’m looking forward to the work of this important committee.”
