Senate Rules


Senate is responsible for the academic governance of the University and so it must be concerned with all important matters that bear on teaching and research in the University; this includes the development of new initiatives, the formation of priorities, and the consideration and approval of policies. Senate’s agenda should be open for informed debate of issues of significance for the whole University.

In 2012 the election rules for the Board of Governors were removed from the Senate Rules and updated according to the University Act.
