The University of Toronto’s Student Newspaper Since 1880

Board of Directors


The Varsity newspaper is published by Varsity Publications, an independent, federally incorporated, not-for-profit corporation. Every full-time student at U of T who pays the Varsity Publications levy is a member of the corporation. Varsity Publications’ only official link with U of T is that the university collects the levy on behalf of the corporation.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the governance and oversight of Varsity Publications, and delegates responsibility for the newspaper and other operations to the Editor-in-Chief of The Varsity. The Board usually meets monthly to discuss matter such as the corporation’s finances, governance, and oversight on the operations.

Members are welcome to attend Board meetings, please email [email protected] for the next meeting date and location.

Varsity Publications also holds two General Meetings of Members each year, usually in October and April. All members of the corporation are entitled to attend and vote at these meetings.
