1.7 The Faculty

The faculty of each college and school exists complete in itself but under the supervision of the Chancellor and the Chief Academic Officer (Vice Chancellor and Provost) and, subject to the approval of the Senate and the Board, has jurisdiction over the educational program and the internal affairs of its own college or school, including such matters as requirements for admission and for graduation, curriculum and instruction, textbooks, examinations and grading, degrees and prizes.
