Shortly after each Senate meeting, a notice of business concluded is posted here for quick reference by members of the University community.

These notices will be removed when approved minutes are posted.

New or revised policies will be posted to the website and to the Policy Central as soon as possible.

Further details about an item of business can be obtained by referring to the Senate agenda (for lists of curriculum changes, for instance) or to supporting materials available on the Intranet, or by contacting the Secretary of Senate.
