Fundamentally, the Board has ultimate responsibility for the mission, vision, values and strategy of the University which will be shaped and delivered by the Vice-Chancellor and the University Executive.
Governing bodies also hold responsibility for determining the 'educational character and mission of the University and for oversight of its activities’. This responsibility cannot be delegated. However, the Articles also clearly set out those key responsibilities of the Vice-Chancellor and Academic Board in relation to academic governance. The Board's other key responsibilities, which cannot be delegated to another body or individual, include:
Chair of the Board of Governors: Farooq Hakim
Clerk to the Board of Governors: Andrea Walters
