Shared Academic Governance
Overview of Shared Academic Governance
Shared Academic Governance is a model of academic governance that shares decision-making between central academic governance bodies like Academic Senate and its Committees and Faculty Boards and their Subcommittees.
Decision-making under the new model
At the Academic Senate meeting of 23 July 2019, it was resolved to authorise a number of decisions to Faculty Boards. These authorisations were further refined at the Academic Senate meeting of 22 October 2019.
Academic Senate retained a number of functions.
A post-implementation review will be conducted in quarter 1, 2020, which will review the use of these authorisations and consider if any changes should be made.
