Notice of Election
ONE ACADEMIC STAFF MEMBER FROM EACH FACULTY TO THE ACADEMIC BOARD
Following the call for nominations, which closed on Thursday, 1 February 2024, multiple valid nominations were received.
An election will therefore be conducted to determine which candidate from each Faculty will be elected to the Academic Board, and the deputy for each member.
The Academic Board is a committee of the University Council and is responsible to the University Council for helping to ensure that the academic quality, integrity and standards of the University’s operations as an academic institution align with the Higher Education Standards Framework.
The Board exercises leadership and has a major role in promoting and communicating academic values, standards, and quality enhancement throughout the University. It has three main functions and responsibilities:
- providing advice on academic matters to the Council, Vice-Chancellor and other members of the University senior executive on academic matters
- approving relevant policies relating to academic matters, and
- monitoring the performance, quality and standards of the University’s academic activities.
Elected academic members of staff from the faculties are a vital part of Academic Board.
