Academic Senate and its Committees

The Standing Committee of Senate

The Academic Senate underwent a review in 2012 with the view to identifying strengths and challenges facing Academic Senate and responding to these matters.

The Panel made a recommendation, at point 4.8.4 of the review document that the Academic Senate Standing Committee be laid down. This would mean that this committee would no longer meet but that its form and role could be reinstated at a later time if the need arose.

As a result, a resolution was passed at the 5 September 2012 meeting of Academic Senate to lay down the Standing Committee.
