Summer Session Organizational Models at Canadian Universities
Kops, Bill
Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education, v36 n2 Fall 2010
The issue of summer session organizational models continues to be of interest to summer session deans/directors and university administrators. The University of Victoria surveyed Canadian universities on this issue in 1994. Based on a similar survey done in 2009, this paper updates the status of Canadian university summer session organizational models, and looks at changes that have occurred over the last decade and a half. It appears that the predominance of more centralized models of summer session administration at Canadian universities has continued. Nevertheless, closer examination suggests that the predominant model is actually a hybrid model wherein responsibilities are vested in a centralized summer session unit with selective responsibilities devolved to faculties and/or departments.
