Faculties

Semi-Autonomous Bodies

Statute 8.1 – Semi-autonomous Bodies provides that Council may establish semi-autonomous bodies (‘SAB’) for the purpose of organising the non-academic activities of the University.  The statute provides the flexibility for SABs to develop their own governance arrangements.  Three general criteria must be fulfilled, and Governance arrangements are approved by Council Nominations and Governance Committee (‘CNGC’) on behalf of Council.  Here are the governance arrangements of the University’s 7 Semi-autonomous Bodies as approved by CNGC.
