How We Are Governed
Council is the University's overall governing body. It delegates the majority of academic governance matters to Senate. Council and Senate are supported in their work by a range of more specialist committees. Formal Senior Leadership Team (FSLT) is the University’s key operational management committee.
Formal Senior Leadership Team (FSLT)
FSLT is the University's key operational management Committee and is chaired by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dame Janet Beer. FSLT takes decisions on major operational matters that have institutional reach, and strategic issues where doing so is time critical.
It also reviews strategic issues and proposals, to ensure a coordinated management response, before these are submitted to the formal governance structure for scrutiny and approval
The Vice-Chancellor, who also acts as the Accountable Officer to the Office for Students, is supported in her role by the University’s Senior Leadership Team. Read more about the Vice-Chancellor’s Office.
