Biographical history

According to section 14 of the Trinity Junior College Act (1969), "the President and Dean of the College shall be appointed by the general conference of the Evangelical Free Church upon the recommendation of the Board of Governors of the College." The first Dean served as Registrar (see fonds 37) and Dean of Education from 1962 to 1971. In 1971, the position title became "Dean of the College." In 1978 it was revised to "Dean of Academic Affairs," and soon after that - in 1979 - the position became that of a Vice President. The Vice President, Academic, is the senior academic leader of the University, and s/he is now appointed by the Board of Governors of the University, upon the recommendation of the President. The Vice President is responsible to the President for all academic affairs of the University, including representing the academic interests of the University on the President's Cabinet and Administrative Council and, when called upon by the President, to the Board of Governors, preparing and presenting proposals and reports to the President, President's Cabinet, and the Board of Governors, monitoring the quality of academic programs, chairing the Undergraduate Academic Council, the Deans' Council, the Academic Policy Development Committee, and faculty business meetings, and representing the University at the AUCC Vice President's committee and the CCCU's Chief Academic Officer's meetings. The Vice President is responsible for the recruitment, supervision, and professional development of educational leaders and faculty. Those who have served in this position include: Enoch E. Mattson (1962-1970), Leland Asa (1970-1976), Deane Downey (Acting Academic Dean, 1976-1977), David Twiest (Chairman of Faculty, 1977-1978), Craig Seaton (1978-1980), Ken Davis (1981-1990), Don Page (1990-2000), and Dennis Jameson (2000- ).
