Academic Electoral Assembly
The Academic Electoral Assembly (AEA) consists of all members of staff performing academic or academic-related roles (normally taken to mean staff on Grade 7 or above)*, with the exception of ex officio members of Senate, together with the Senior Tutor (or one Tutor of equivalent rank) from each of the Recognised Colleges or Licensed Halls of Residence.
* All members of staff, however, are very welcome to attend general discussion meetings. Formal items of business, if there are any, will be conducted at the end of the meeting, at which time non-AEA members will be invited to leave.
