Governance

Our governing bodies

We strongly believe in inclusive representation of our community in the University operations at various levels. There is parity of elected and appointed members and student representation in all bodies of governance. This is clearly embedded in our Charter which implements the following principles:

- all academic bodies (Departments, Schools, Senate) are headed by elected representatives

- in all bodies of governance adequate representation from students is present

- the Senate, the supreme academic body, comprises solely of students and elected academics with the exception for the inclusion of the Director of Administration and Finance

- at the University Council, the supreme administrative body, there is equal representation between appointed members and elected representatives from students, academics and administrative personnel.

The Council is the supreme administrative body of the University and is responsible for all matters that affect the University, considering financial and administrative issues, the University's infrastructure, the overseeing of staff and the approval of recruitments. The Council is chaired by the President and in case of absence, the duties of the President are carried out by the Vice-President.

The Council of the University consists of:
  • Four members of renowned ethos and honor 
  • A member of the academic staff at the rank of Professor or Associate Professor, elected by the Teaching Research Faculty
  • The Director of Administration and Finance who has no right to vote
  • A representative of the Administrative Staff, elected by the body of the Administrative Staff
  • A representative of the students, elected by the students

Supplementing the academic and administrative structure, the supreme bodies of the University have the authority to establish Centres. A Centre reports directly to a supreme body and has an executive capacity to engage on a particular area of interest, either within the university of beyond, that spans the scope of several Schools or Services.
