UCL East is being driven, managed and governed through the UCL East programme. Ultimate accountability for, and financial control of, the UCL East programme sits with the UCL Council. The UCL East Executive Group has been established to govern and oversee delivery of the programme; this Executive group is chaired by the Provost and membership includes senior academic representation, as well as senior management for Operations, Finance and Estates. Reporting into the Executive group is a number of governance and assurance groups, which oversee and shape the direction of the programme.
An Academic Director, Professor Paola Lettieri, has been appointed to ensure that the academic vision for UCL East is woven into all aspects of delivery and a programme team has been formed. The programme team is made up of subject matter experts in estates, space planning, academic planning, operations, engagement, communications and programme and project management - working together to deliver the series of projects and workstreams which make up the first phase of UCL East.
