Faculty Council is the highest body governing Glendon College and includes membership of students, staff and faculty.  It meets regularly to deliberate on academic issues which concern the College.  These may range from policies and planning for the future to academic standards and student petitions.

Most of the Committees of the Council are composed of an equal number of faculty and students, including those which handle student petitions, the tenure and promotion of faculty, bilingualism and the screening of all curriculum proposals.  Student representation of Council comprises up to 15% of the total membership.  Elections for these positions are held in March of each year.
