Governance Structure

Governance - Class 1.2

Publication Scheme: Class

This class contains information relating to how the College’s management structure is organised and the function and purpose of each part of the management structure.

Examples of the type of information in this class include: descriptions of statutory bodies (eg governing body, council, senate, general assembly). In many cases it will be appropriate to list the names of people who are members of the above, as they are matters of public interest; codes of conduct for members of governing bodies; description of the sub-structures and committees supporting them. This may include academic boards, boards of governors and steering groups. These may have 'Standing Orders' which indicate the mode of operation; objectives on which the structure is based; terms of reference, membership and mode of operation of all boards and committees in the formal structure; code of practice for college/university elections and committee procedures; minutes and papers of governing body, council and/or senate, academic boards and steering groups etc; appointment committees and procedures.
