Governance handbook

The Governance Handbook provides guidelines, principles and recommended templates to support the operation of formal committees and groups across the University.  All colleagues across the University are welcome to use the Handbook and its guidance. The templates for agendas, reports, minutes and actions have been designed for ease of use, and – depending on local context and requirements – may be adapted according to a committee’s needs. The Handbook may also be used by staff supporting working groups, task and finish groups, and informal groups, if they so wish.

Colleagues providing agenda items for University formal governance committees (the Board of Governors and its committees, and Senate) are asked to use the templates included in the Handbook to ensure a standardised approach, presentation and quality in support of University governance activity.
