Senate Staff

The Faculties, Vancouver & Okanagan Senates, the Council of Senates, and their respective committees are coordinated by Office of the Senate.

Senate staff advise on procedural and regulatory matters; provide interpretations for University, faculty, and program requirements; draft academic regulations and policies; prepare meeting agenda and minutes; oversee the University's electoral and quasi-judicial appeals processes; and manage content for and production of the University's academic Calendars.

For matters relating to non-academic policies and legal affairs, please visit the Office of the University Counsel.

For a full list of all current Senate staff, please see here.
