Governors’ Resources

At the start of the 21st century institutions of higher education have become highly ambitious communities. Governing bodies must therefore also be ambitious, as they seek to mould the circumstances which will convert those aspirations into successful outcomes within a robust and reliable framework of governance.

Andrew Cubie, Chair of CUC (Committee of University Chairs) 2008

Governance is an increasingly complex activity and it is essential that governors have a clear understanding of their responsibilities within the context of the authority assigned to them through the Instrument and Articles of Government and the Regulatory Framework for Higher Education issued by the Office for Students (OfS) as Principal Regulator for the higher education sector.

The Governors’ Resources pages bring together a range of information about the University and the role of Governors in carrying out their responsibilities.  Designed to cover the arrangements as they apply to this University, this page draws heavily on the guidance issued by the Committee of University Chairs (CUC) and the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (now part of AdvanceHE).
