The Senate

The Senate is the soul of the academia in the university, chaired by the Vice-Chancellor. It is a relatively large deliberative and participative body made up of professors and some non-academic staff. It is the ultimate authority for academic decision-making, normally acting on advice from the School Boards and its other Committees. Hence, the academic policy and procedures of the university are determined by this structure.

The Senate is responsible for all the academic affairs of the University, including the provision of courses and the approval of their syllabi, admissions and progress of students through examinations and other forms of assessments, the award of degrees and other qualifications as may be prescribed. Also, it is responsible for the making of recommendations to the Governing 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.
