The University of Melbourne is accountable to all its stakeholders for the values it upholds, the mission it pursues and the goals and priorities it sets.
It must also account for the quality of its policies, programs and academic performance, as well as for the financial well-being of the institution as a whole, and for maintaining the highest levels of probity in the conduct of its affairs.
The University's governance structure ensures these standards are met.
The University Council is the peak governing body of the University.
The Academic Board oversees the learning, teaching and research activities of the University.
The members of the University community include academic and professional staff, honorary staff and graduates. The University Calendar is the source of information about the Melbourne University Act 1958 (Victoria), the statutes and regulations that govern our activities, descriptions of our committees and organisational units, and a list of all honorary doctorates awarded by the University. (The University Calendar is different from the Events calendar, which lists public lectures and other events happening on campus each day.)
The list of principal dates includes committee meetings, semesters and terms, conferring ceremonies and other important administrative dates.
