1.3.1 Board of Governors Resolution Delegating Authority to the GFC Academic Appeals Committee

WHEREAS a question has arisen as to the duty of the Board on receipt of a petition from a Student asking the Board to intervene in or to sit in appeal on or to review an academic decision made by General Faculties Council (which for the purposes hereof includes any person or body over whom General Faculties Council has jurisdiction in academic matters):

As long as the General Faculties Council Academic Appeals Committee continues to exercise jurisdiction to hear and determine Student appeals from Faculty decisions affecting academic standing at the University, the Board shall refuse to interfere in or to sit in appeal on or to review the decision of General Faculties Council Academic Appeals Committee thereon PROVIDED that nothing herein shall preclude the Board from interfering in or sitting in appeal on or reviewing any decision of General Faculties Council where the reason for such interference, appeal or review is in substance something other than an academic judgment or an academic discretion.
