Administrative history

The Office of the Bursar was established in 1947. As chief non-academic officer, the Bursar's primary duty was to advise the President on the resources needed to provide support for the educational process. The Bursar formulated and coordinated all non academic policy and activities until the mid 60's. The University then underwent increased growth, forcing the Bursar's Office to spawn financial, administrative and physical plant officers. In 1973, the name of the office was changed to the Office of the Vice-President (Administration) and Bursar. In 1991, the office became known as the Vice-President (Finance and Administration).
The Vice-President is accountable to the President for the business and administrative operations of the University. Included in these responsibilities are the Office of Budget Planning, the Finance Office, the Business Office, Purchasing and Mail Services, Internal Audit and Advisory Services, the Department of Pension Management, the Personnel Department and those units reporting to the Office of the Associate Vice-President (Finance and Adminstration). The Associate V.P. is responsible for the Physical Recreation and Athletic Department, the Physcial Plant Department, the Department of University Safety and the Department of University Services.
In addition to acting as the President's principal advisor on these matters, the Vice-President represents the University with external organizations, including the government of Ontario, that deal with finance or contractual matters.
Those who have served in this capacity are: Elizabeth M. Meikle (Bursar, 1947-1948); Fredrick James Turner (Bursar, 1948-1970); A. B. Larose (Vice-Prsident Administration and Bursar, 1970-1981); C. G. Watt (Vice-President Finance and Adminstration, 1981-1991); J. S. Riordon (Vice-President Finance and Administration, 1991 -1997); Duncan Watt is the current Vice-President having been apppointed July 1, 1997.
