Biographical history

The Commission was established by President Farquhar in January 1972 to study and make recommendations regarding methods of academic governance at UVic. The Commission invited submissions from interested individuals and groups. The establishment of the Commission followed the resignation of President Partridge over the credibility of his academic qualifications. Although the Faculty Association, Alma Mater Society, and the Graduate Student Society refused to participate, some individuals from these groups made submissions. The commission consisted of five faculty members and the University Librarian, Dr. S.A. Jennings as chair, and Prof. A.E. Loft as secretary. The Commission was often referred to as the "Jennings Commission".
