The Board of Governors is responsible for the overall strategic direction and governance of the University.
The Board's many powers, functions, duties and responsibilities are set out in the University's Statutory Instrument. The Governors’ Handbook includes the Statement of Primary Responsibilities of the Board and the Code of Conduct.
The Board of Governors are also required as a matter of good University governance to comply with:
To ensure that the Board operates effectively, the Board uses a Skills Matrix to inform selection decisions. The Board carries outs annual monitoring of its effectiveness and engages regularly in external review.
The Board of Governors appoints and regulates the Standing Committees which carry out the statutory obligations of the University. Standing Committees will, from time to time, establish Sub-Committees in order to assist them in undertaking their remits.
The Governance and Nominations Committee is keen to receive nominations and build up a pool of potential external Committee members and Board applicants for the future. It is important to note that anyone nominated in this capacity, who then wishes to apply for future Board membership, would need to submit a separate application for this purpose in their own right.
