This section contains information about the University; its History, Mission, Vision, Values and the current Strategic Plan. It also outlines the responsibilities of the Vice-Chancellor as Chief Executive and the Academic Board with a diagrammatic representation of the University’s management and committee structure.
The Board of Governors is responsible for approving the University’s Strategic Plan and periodic meetings with Governors are held to discuss strategy to supplement debate at Board meetings.
In addition to receiving the minutes of Academic Board, the major Academic Board Committees operate a Link Governor Scheme where a nominated independent member of the Board of Governors receives papers and may attend meetings as an observer. This scheme is unique to Edge Hill and provides Governors with an opportunity to see academic decision-making at first-hand. The committees currently covered by the scheme are:
Learning and Teaching Committee
Academic Planning Committee
Governors who are interested in becoming involved in the Link Governor Scheme should inform the Clerk.
The Governor Induction programme provides an opportunity to meet with a range of academic and service heads to better understand the core business of the University. Further meetings with key staff can be arranged through the Clerk.
