The University Secretary
The University Secretary is equivalent to a company secretary in a private sector organisation. The office is responsible for the governance of the University, ensuring that the decisions of the University, and its subsidiaries and associated bodies, are properly made.
The Governance Office
The Governance Office supports the University Secretary both in their role as the Clerk to the Court of Governors (the governing body) and in their role as Senior Information Risk Owner. The Governance Office comprises two teams: the Corporate Governance team and the Information Governance team.
Corporate Governance Team
The services provided by the Corporate Governance team include:
- Advice on the University's governing documents and charitable status, governing body structure and related standing orders
- Advice on the roles and responsibilities of the governors, the Court of Governors and its committees
- Servicing the Court of Governors' meetings, its committee meetings, and other bodies where appropriate
- Production of certain corporate governance policy documents, including the Prevent Policy.

- GDPR and the Data Protection Act
