Divisional Council of the Faculty of Music

Composition and Quorum


  1. All full-time members of the Faculty

  2. Two part-time contract academic staff (CAS) representatives elected by and from among the CAS of the Faculty of Music

  3. The university registrar or his/her designate as an ex-officio, non-voting member

  4. Six student representatives - one from each of the following music programs: comprehensive, music education, composition, performance, history and theory, and music therapy. With respect to history and theory, it is understood that the representative would alternate between those two programs from one year to the next. Similarly, the performance representative would rotate from year to year between voice, piano, winds/brass, and strings. Finally, if possible, a balance of first-, second-, third- and fourth-year representatives would be sought, recognizing the fact that most programs begin specialization only in third year.
    In cases where, in spite of appropriate lobbying, there are no student representatives in a particular music program, the music association may elect a second student representative from another program. The maximum number of student representatives from any given music program is two.
    The students on council will be elected by the students' Wilfrid Laurier University Music Association using the same voting procedures as for WLUMA.
