Senate Academic Policy Committee Call for Comments on Draft Policy V-130: Content and Distribution of Course Syllabi

The Vancouver Senate Academic Policy Committee is drafting a policy that would set and describe the minimum requirements for the content and distribution of course syllabi.  In the fall of 2016, the Committee consulted the University community for initial feedback on the proposal. Since then, the Committee has had multiple discussions on the policy, the Chair has met with various offices on campus to get feedback, and multiple revisions to the policy have been made.

The Committee is now seeking feedback from the UBC community on the attached draft. Responses from individuals and groups are welcome. Please forward this consultation package to anyone you feel should be aware of it and/or circulate it among your constituency. Note: the syllabus template that will be attached as an appendix will be developed in conjunction with the Senate Curriculum Committee should this policy be approved.

The Academic Policy Committee will be accepting feedback and questions until Friday, July 27th at 4:00 p.m. Comments should be submitted via email to
