Welcome to Mount Saint Vincent University’s Board of Governors

The Board of Governors’ Policies and Procedures Manual (aka Board Manual) was developed to help you, as a Board member, access the information and tools needed to carry out your fiduciary responsibilities to Mount Saint Vincent University.

Some tools/materials may be confidential; those that are will be available by logging into the Board of Governors’ SharePoint site.  These will be clearly marked, and a link to the item within SharePoint provided; your username and password will be needed for login.
