Ensuring our Board of Governors is inclusive

Responsibilities of the Board of Governors

The Board of Governors is collectively responsible for overseeing the institution’s activities, determining its future direction, and fostering an environment in which the university’s mission is achieved and the potential of all learners is maximised.

All persons appointed to the board are expected to be committed to the institution’s vision and values and to the success of the individuals and communities we serve.

The successful candidate will observe the highest standard of corporate governance in exercising their responsibilities.

Process for filling the vacancy
