Under NSHE code, institutional and unit bylaws are established by the faculty, subject to the approval of the president, to help regulate operations and management at the institutional and college/unit level.
UNLV Bylaws govern the university, and it is the responsibility of the senate through the University Bylaws Committee to review, update and monitor implementation. Changes to the UNLV Bylaws are first considered in the Faculty Senate. If approved, changes are sent to the entire faculty for approval. If approved, the President of the University may accept or veto the change. If accepted, the change is forwarded to the chancellor for approval.
Unit bylaws enter into effect when ratified by the faculty of the unit and approved by the president or his/her delegate, and the president is mandated to keep on file the bylaws in effect for each unit. The catalog of unit-level bylaws below is to provide access to the faculty of those bylaws considered to be in effect.
