The Committee of University Chairmen (CUC) recommends that we undertake a review of the effectiveness of our governance every five years, so that we can be sure that our Council continues to operate effectively over time, and as the internal and external environment changes. This includes a review of College Council and Academic Board.
Since November 2012, we began our most recent review of the effectiveness of our governance arrangements. This included establishing a Project Board, chaired by our Chair of Council, and several working groups.
The current statutes are laid out in a list of 32, covering every aspect of College governance. In what follows, we have grouped the various statutes into six areas. These are: interpretations and principles, composition of Council, Academic Board and structure, College management team, Students’ Union, and staff.
Owing to the complexity of the statutes in Academic Board and structure, and staff, further work is being undertaken in separate working groups to fully consider all aspects of these processes. We are, however, in a position to publicly consult with a range of stakeholders on the other four sections, including the principle of the section on Academic Board and structure.
To take the survey, select from the links below. Please note that the questions are the same for both staff and students but the order in which they appear is different.
