Senate Staff

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