Welcome to Seneca College

Seneca offers more than an education. With campuses throughout the Greater Toronto Area, Seneca’s size and diversity give students the advantage of partnerships with industry leaders, the latest in hands-on computer technology, a variety of class sizes, and full-time, part-time and continuing education options. Education should be flexible and accessible, so Seneca also employs various methods of teaching – from in-class lectures and online learning to co-op and field placements – in programs related to applied arts, business, financial services and technology.

Students come to Seneca with diverse ambitions and dreams – preparing for their chosen career, continuing their education, or transitioning into a new job. Whichever path our students select, our goal is to ensure that a Seneca education opens the doorway to great opportunities.

Our exciting and innovative Strategic and Academic plans are our commitment to great teaching and learning, great student experiences and great foundations — commitments we are proud to undertake on behalf of our students.

Our students prepare for a life of learning in a world that continues to change with increasing speed. We strive to graduate active and engaged citizens, ready for leadership in their careers and their communities. With outstanding faculty and staff, excellent academic programs, a global perspective and a strong community, Seneca is helping our students become those leaders.

Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a long-time Senecan, it’s my pleasure on behalf of the Board of Governors to warmly welcome you to this website. I invite you to experience first-hand why Seneca is considered a leader in post-secondary education.


Seneca participates in many associations and groups focused on issues that matter to our community. Here are just some:

In addition, our academic schools and programs have many affiliations and memberships connecting our faculty, staff and students to professional associations, accreditation bodies and other groups that bring value to our teaching and learning environment.

Governance at Seneca

Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology is overseen by a Board of Governors comprised of members from the community, elected College employees and a student representative elected by the student body. The Board is supported by the administration of the College.

Seneca’s Board has 21 members: 16 representing the community, four members elected by administration, faculty, support staff and students, and the President. One-third of the external members are nominated by the Board and appointed by the Cabinet of the Ontario Government, officially titled the Lieutenant Governor in Council. Two-thirds are nominated and elected by the Board. Collectively, the external members bring a wide range of skill and experience in education, finance, public affairs, governance, legal affairs, community relations and management to help the College achieve its strategic objectives.

The Board of Governors is responsible for:

Establishing appropriate governance structures to oversee the operations of the College through delegation to the President the accountability for its performance and operation.
Approving the College strategic directions and outcomes within the context of the appropriate laws, public policy, and needs of the labour market and community.
Hiring the President and evaluating the President’s performance.
Approving the College’s annual business plan, budget, and annual report.
Assessing the effectiveness of the board.

About Program Advisory Committees

The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities requires an advisory committee for each College program, or related program cluster, to ensure curriculum quality, student and graduate success. Committee members are an external selection of exceptional leaders in their fields with a diversity of program-related experience and expertise. The Program Advisory Committee is a highly valuable College resource and reports to the Board of Governors through the College President. Regular meeting updates are given to the Board’s Academic Planning Committee.

The Role

The committee ensures programs are current and relevant to industry, business and society. Program advisors identify current and future industry trends and shifts in the skills and knowledge graduates need to meet employer requirements. They advise on the need for new programs and participate in their development and quality assurance. Committee members also assist in identifying industry resources, including guest speakers, field placement, co-op and graduate employment opportunities. Program Advisory Committee members are key liaisons between the College and industry and between the College and the community.

The Reward

Program Advisory Committee members are key players in the future success of students, graduates and the College. In guiding the development of College programs, they help to ensure graduates are well prepared to begin their careers and contribute to their field.

The Commitment

Membership is by invitation. Appointment to the Committee is one four-year term, and when applicable, a second term may be added. Meetings are normally held one or twice per year. A list of Seneca’s Program Advisory Committees is available online.
