The University operates a deliberative committee structure in relation to its academic governance. Academic Board is the ultimate authority for academic matters and it has established a structure of committees and boards to devolve specific responsibilities to.
Academic Governance and Quality Assurance has a broad responsibility for academic governance matters, including its operation, review and enhancement. Processes are reviewed annually and subject to approval by Academic Board. More information on the governance of the University and its key governing documents and policies can be found on the Board of Governors webpage and the Strategies and Policies webpage. Further information about academic governance at Edge Hill University can be found in chapter 8 of the Quality Management Handbook.
The most senior body in our academic governance structure is the Academic Board. It is supported by five committees: Academic Planning Committee, Academic Quality Enhancement Committee, Learning and Teaching Committee, Research and Innovation Committee, and Faculty Boards. Where appropriate, these committees are supported by their own sub-structure.
The Academic Board is also supported by the Honorary Awards Committee, a joint committee of the Academic Board and the Board of Governors, and the Graduate School Board of Governors.
The Academic Board reports into the Board of Governors, as appropriate.
