Council is the University's governing body and is responsible for the educational character and mission of the University, the approval of annual estimates of income and expenditure, the appointment of senior staff, and the Articles of Association (revised September 2011) that set out the formal governance arrangements of the University.
Council currently comprises 18 members. Council members are required to declare any interests on appointment and during their term of office. If you wish to view the register of interests, please contact Penny Gravestock, Assistant Secretary to Council on 01242 714184.
