UCL's formal committees

Academic Services contact for initial enquiries - Gary Hawes (g.hawes@ucl.ac.uk)

These pages contain information about Council, Academic Board and UCL's standing committees, which are listed below -- including details of their constitutions and memberships, terms of reference and dates of meetings.  Non-confidential Minutes of meetings of these formal committees are also available (see third paragraph below for more information on the availability of Minutes).

UCL's standing committees are formally established by Council, which is UCL's governing body. Although Academic Board is included in the list below, it is provided for in the UCL Charter and Statutes rather than formally established by Council as a standing committee.

Minutes of meetings of UCL's formal committees listed below for sessions prior to 2010-11 are not publicly accessible.  For Minutes of meetings in and after session 2010-11, access restrictions continue to apply both to unconfirmed Minutes of meetings and to confidential Minutes.

In order to keep the information on these pages up to date, all changes in membership of UCL formal committees should be reported immediately to Gary Hawes.

Proposed changes in membership which require an amendment of the constitution of the committee should also be referred to Gary Hawes as should proposed changes to terms of reference.
