Classifications:

  • Exclusive legislation: Legislation adopted by a college or school faculty and of exclusive application and of preliminary interest only to a single college or school shall be classified as exclusive legislation. Exclusive legislation may be approved by the Faculty Council by no-protest procedure, provided no protest is received from a member within seven (7) calendar days after notification, excluding official University holidays.
  • General legislation: Legislation of general interest to more than one college or school (but not for submission to the General Faculty) shall be classified as general legislation. General legislation may be approved by the Faculty Council by no-protest procedure, provided no protest is received from a member within fourteen (14) calendar days after notification, excluding official University holidays.

    NOTE: In addition, any of these three types of legislation may be classified as emergency legislation. The Council may, by vote, reclassify any legislation. Specific information on each type of legislation shall be included in the By-Laws of the Faculty Council (see Handbook of Operating Procedures 2-1120-PM).
