- Engages in diversity, community and civility issues that affect the TC community;
- Does not handle individual "ombudsperson", or budgetary matters;
- Provides TC's only cross-constituency committee (19 members), (unlike the College Policy Council which excluded union members, had 46 members and was involved in budgetary matters).
