Governance, Leadership & Management


University governance is the constitutional forms and processes through which universities govern their affairs. The Board of Governors is the most senior committee in the University's governance structure.

The Board of Governors completed a review of its governance arrangements in November 2012 and approved changes to its operation effective from 1 August 2013. These changes include a reduction in the number of independent members, an increase in the annual number of Board meetings from three to six, and the winding up of the Finance and HR sub-committees. The business conducted by the latter will now be dealt with by the Board.
