The Vice-President (Academic) was created in 1960 to act as the senior administrative officer responsible for Faculties, Colleges, Schools and Libraries. He also acted as a liaison between those divisions and the President. In 1976 the Vice-President (Academic) was granted an Assistant Vice-President for Graduate Studies, Libraries and Research, as well as two Provosts to help administer the increasing workload. In 1981 the Provosts changed title to become Associate Vice-President of Academic Staff and Associate Vice-President of Programs. As well, an Associate Vice-President was created to help administer the Vice-President's office duties.

The Vice-President (Academic) files (1965-1982) contain primarily correspondence and reports from university faculties and departments, boards, academic councils, centres, institutes, and academic and advisory committees concerning their activities. Also included are faculty council minutes and correspondence with various government departments and non-university organizations, and information related to various academic conferences. Some files relate to the University's budget, space utilization, and academic staff.
