Preamble

The policies of Senate are found in three places: here among these abstracts; in the Academic Calendar; and, in the record of the minutes of Senate meetings.  A project has been undertaken to codify policies according to a consistent template.  Where the policies below are numbered, these policies have been codified.  Other policies are included here for quick reference.  The list presented is by no means exhaustive.  Should you have any questions concerning Senate policies, please contact Senate and Curriculum Services at 604.827.0003.
