Provost's Board

In February 2019 University Council approved that two Boards be established, wef 1 August 2019, which report into the University Executive Committee (UEC):

  • Provost’s Board
  • Operations Board

These two Boards have clear decision-making powers and delegations from UEC, to which they are accountable.

The Provost’s Board is chaired by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost and has a predominantly academic membership. It meets on a fortnightly basis and exceptionally as required. Academic ownership of faculty matters, research and education are strongly underlined and reaffirmed.

The Operations Board is chaired by the Vice-Chancellor and Warden in the first instance and has a remit across infrastructure and major non-academic projects. It meets on a fortnightly basis and exceptionally as required.
