The Council of Athletics and Recreation (CAR) is one of the oldest continuing student governance bodies at the University of Toronto, with a history dating back more than 100 years. It has jurisdiction over the co-curricular programs on the St. George Campus, as well as university-wide programs such as Intramurals.
Composed of students, administrative staff, alumni, and facility users, CAR is responsible for overall athletics and recreation policy, including the allocation of funds to program areas, staffing policy, and rental and fees policy. CAR is a Standing Committee of the KPE Faculty Council.
Students enjoy constitutional parity on the 30-member Council, and participation in CAR is a fantastic means to get involved in the on-campus governance process.
With the current CAR term drawing to a close, we will be holding elections to fill a large number of student positions. These positions are open to St.George Students, in the constituent groups listed below. Elections will occur on April 1st & 2nd, 2015 to elect a new Council for a 2-Year Term, which will hold seats from May 1, 2015 - April 30, 2017.
St. George Campus Student Constituency
10 student members, normally comprising five female and five male members, will be elected in the Spring. Of these, at minimum, the Council will have:
- Two seats filled by full‑time Arts & Science students
- Two seats filled by full-time undergraduate professional faculty students
- One seat filled by a part‑time undergraduate student
- One seat filled by a Graduate student
Four additional members are elected on an "at large" basis, who can come from any of the above groups.
Finally, one student member each will be appointed by the athletic associations of UTM and UTSC.
