Like every tertiary institution, CAILS adopts committee system which is basically a tool for effective management of both human and material resources of the college. It could also be considered as a mechanism through which delegated responsibilities are been assigned to some group of people with high integrity and competency.

Committee is a forum that consists of intelligent and competent personnel who understand the culture and traditional of the college. There are some matters that have to do with specialization in tertiary institutions which may require professional attention, since no man is an Island of knowledge or wisdom hence, the need for delegation of power to enhance effective decision. Some committees are statutory as they are the creation of an edict which their no- establishment can render invalid some activities or administrative decisions.

The highest policy making body of the College is the Governing Council, appointed by the government. The Academic Board is another policy making organ of the college, with the Provost as the Chairman. The Provost is the Chief Executive who is responsible for the day to day administration of the college in collaboration with other principal officers.

Committees of the College

There are three types of committees which include statutory, management and ad-hoc committees. The edict establishing the college created the statutory Committee with the title, duties, limitations and membership of such committees spelt out the enabling law. Management committees are those created by the college management to take care of some aspects of administration while ad-hoc committees are either established by the Council, the Provost, the Dean or a Head of Departments carry out specific assignments. The efficiency of the committees can be determined by the level of commitment of its members towards the realization of the committee’s term of reference.
