Policy abstracts

Preamble

The policies of Senate are found in several places: here among these abstracts (of policies from 2005 onwards), in the Academic Calendar, in the records of the minutes of Senate meetings and on the UBC Vancouver Senate Policy Abstract webpage. As noted below in University Counsel: Status of Policy as Approved by the University Senate,

"The University Counsel confirmed that the status of policy approved by, and precedents established by, the Vancouver Senate prior to the creation of UBC Okanagan and the Vancouver and Okanagan Senates, would, by default, apply to the entire University, and therefore to the Okanagan Senate.

The Okanagan Senate has been established and is now able to pass its own motions that modify or reverse any academic policies or precedents insofar as they apply to UBC Okanagan."

 

A project has been undertaken to codify policies according to a consistent template. Where the policies below are numbered, these policies have been codified. Other policies are included here for quick reference. The list presented is by no means exhaustive. Should you have any questions concerning Senate policies, please contact the Office of the Senate.

 

The policies of the Board of Governors can be found here
