Independent Review of Council Effectiveness

Find out what Council is doing to further improve its performance.

In the summer of 2022, Council commissioned consultants Elizabeth Mohr and Keith Leslie to conduct an external review of its effectiveness. We are grateful to everyone within the University community who gave so generously of their time to assist this process.

The review found that Council currently fulfils all formal compliance and governance expectations and successfully provided leadership and assurance through some particularly challenging years. However, it also made some recommendations to help Council shift from fulfilling expectations to "best in class".

You can read the review and the action plan that Council has developed to address the recommendations made in the report below.

We will monitor our progress in implementing the actions set out in our plan and will take stock at the end of the 2023/24 academic year.
