University Counsel: Status of Policy as Approved by the University Senate

The following statement was circulated to members of the Okanagan Senate for information at its meeting of December 5, 2005.

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.

This information is for quick reference. For the full text of the Minutes of Senate, which include the motions and discussion, please see the Minutes Archive.
