There are three main types of sub-committee in the governance structure of the University:
Some sub-committees in support of Council are statutory committees required to ensure the University is legally compliant, others have a strategic or operational focus.
The sub-committees in support of Senate consider and deliver more detailed work on academic matters.
The responsibilities of the Board for Graduate Schools were reallocated to other Senate sub-committees from October 2010. Copies of relevant policies and minutes of the Board and a schedule of the reallocations are summarised here.
The committees in support of the SMG consider and deliver more detailed work on executive, support and resource matters.
