Meetings and agendas

Material for Senate meetings should be sent to the Senate Office by email to christopher.eaton@ubc.ca at least two days prior to an Agenda Committee meeting. Please note that some material may need to be considered by a committee of Senate prior to consideration by Senate as a whole, and thus not all items may be placed directly before the Senate.
