Bylaws of the University and its Units

 

University of Nevada, Reno Bylaws

Bylaws of the Graduate Council and Faculty Senate

The Faculty Senate maintains the official and current copy of bylaws for all units of the university, and this website contains only current, approved bylaws.  To add bylaws to this website, please read the appropriate bylaws approval instructions below:

FOR COLLEGES AND OTHER MAJOR UNITS OF THE UNIVERSITY
FOR DEPARTMENTS AND OTHER BASIC UNITS OF THE UNIVERSITY

Submitting Previously Approved Bylaws:
Units whose current bylaws were approved before October 4, 2008 must provide the Faculty Senate Office: 1) an electronic version of the bylaws formatted in accordance with the new format standards (see approval instructions above) and 2) the approval signature page or pages dated and signed by the appropriate authorities.

Note:  If a department or other basic unit (center, institute, program, school, etc.) chooses to develop written policies and procedures in place of or as well as bylaws, the policies and procedures require the same approval process as bylaws.

To check for older copies of bylaws, contact the Faculty Senate office.
