Ahead of the game – an empowered governing council.
At a time of great uncertainty – funding pressures, Brexit, a new deal for students – the Ofﬁce for Students (OfS) also published a new regulatory framework, ‘Securing Student Success’, which will add a further layer of complexity to the task of running today’s university.
We spoke to Council Chairs, Lay Council Members, Vice-Chancellors and Council Secretaries and asked them to share their insights with us. Our conversations on the challenges ahead were wide-ranging and insightful. Above all, participants were extremely honest about the state of their governing boards. As we all prepare for a new era, we hope you find what others have said as enlightening as we did.
