The Senate is the soul of the academia and with students the raison d’tere for the university. Chaired by the Vice-Chancellor, it is usually a relatively large deliberative and participative body made up of Professors and some non-professorial academic staff. It is the ultimate authority for academic decision-taking, normally acting on advice from the School Boards and its other Committees. Hence, the academic policy and procedures of the University are determined by a complex structure in which many members of the Academic Staff participate.
The Senate is responsible for all the academic affairs of the University, including the provision of courses and the approval of their syllabuses, the admission and progress of students through examinations and otherwise, the award of degrees and such other qualifications as may be prescribed, the making of recommendations to the Council in respect of candidates for the award of honorary degrees, the establishment, organization and control of halls of residence in the University, and the granting of fellowships, scholarships, prizes and similar awards that are within the control of the University provided that funds are available.
