Policies, Procedures and Guidance
Over the last year, there have been changes in the University Governance and Committee Structure. Many of the processes that were administered centrally within the University have now been devolved to the Colleges, and some of the Committee titles have altered as a result. This addendum is intended to act as a helpful guide when reading the University’s Ordinances, Policies and Procedures.
The devolvement has also meant that roles such as the Chairs of the central committees no longer exist. These responsibilities have, therefore, been reassigned, as appropriate, and are detailed in the table below.
|Groups/posts referred to that are no longer in existence||Replaced by|
|Chair of Staff Management Group||Head of College, or nominated representative|
|Chair of Staffing Policy Committee||Provost|
|Staff Management Group||College Staffing Committee|
|Staffing Policy Committee||University Staffing Committee|
|Director of College Administration||Director of Operations|
|Senior PVC (Resources)||Provost|
|Registrar and Secretary||Registrar and Chief Operating Officer|
|Staff Counselling||Staff support details available through Occupational Health|
|Reader/Senior Lecturer||May also be known as Associate Professor|
