Academic Advisory Council

The CSEND Academic Advisory Council (AAC) provides advice and counsel on the development and maintenance of CSEND academic programmes and related activities. Academic Advisory Council members are expected to provide important ongoing advice to help CSEND ensure high quality of its programmes.

The Academic Advisory Council is composed of scholars, reflective practitioners and researchers from the fields of knowledge related to CSEND’ activities. Council members serve as individuals with no implied or explicit expectation that their respective institutions approve or recommend CSEND programmes and related activities.

The focus of the Council’s activities will be to assist CSEND on strategic planning, priority setting of academic initiatives, and recommending related policies.
