19. The Academic Council shall prepare the general by-laws, applicable to the constituent universities, superior schools and research institutes, respecting:
(a) the organization of instruction and research;
(b) the structure of curricula and the nomenclature of university degrees, diplomas or certificates;
(c) the admission of students;
(d) the criteria and procedure for the engagement and promotion of the members of the faculty;
(e) the procedure to be followed at consultations of the faculty for appointments to positions of responsibility for instruction and research;
(f) the powers and composition of the academic committee of the constituent universities and superior schools and of the research committee of the research institutes, the procedure to be followed for the appointment, and term of office of their members.
Such by-laws must be submitted for the approval of the Board of Governors; they shall come into force, after they are so approved, on the date of their publication in the Gazette officielle du Québec.
Such by-laws may include special provisions applicable only to the Université du Québec à Montréal, by reason, in particular, of its status as an associated university.
The Academic Council may also make recommendations to the Board of Governors respecting the co-ordination of instruction and research among the constituent universities, superior schools and research institutes.
