Developmental Advisory Council

The Advisory Council is at a critical stage of its development and decisions need to be made about the structure, recruitment, and operational processes of the 2021 Advisory Council (the first full-term Advisory Council of this Plan). 

Based on the recommendations that came out of initial conversations and engagement about the Advisory Council, the Fall 2020 term has been dedicated to relationship-building and collaboration towards the development of the 2021 Advisory Council. The Sustainability Office has established a Developmental Advisory Council (DevAC) in order to co-create the structure and some of the key frameworks and operational processes of the first full-term Advisory Council (2021) with members of the SFU community.
