UBC Okanagan Senate
The Okanagan Senate is the academic governing body of the Okanagan campus of the University, and its responsibilities include admissions, course and program curriculum, granting of degrees, academic policy, examinations, and appeals of standing and student discipline. The Okanagan Senate meets every month from September to May of each year, and also has a variety of committee meetings that occur frequently.
Council of Senates
The University Act also establishes a Council of Senates, which is responsible for matters pertaining to the broader UBC system. In certain circumstances, the Council of Senates may act as though it were a senate.
