Change to process of nominating and appointing New Chairs and Deputy Chairs

1 September 2023

Board Chair and Deputy Chair nominations should be processed by Faculty approvers, and no longer need to be sent to the central external examiner team

Please note that there has been a change to the process of nominating and appointing new Chairs and Deputy Chairs.

HoDs, instead of the outgoing Chair, will now nominate new Chairs and Deputy Chair’s, and will notify the Faculty team. The Faculty BoEs will approve and process the Change of Chair and Deputy Chair. Therefore, you no longer need to email examiners@ucl.ac.uk about the change, and should instead inform your Faculty team, who will approve the change and update Portico.

Please see Chapter 4, Section 11.6 ‘Chairs and Deputy Chairs’ of the Academic Manual: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/academic-manual/chapters/chapter-4-assessment-framework-taught-programmes/section-11-boards-examiners

We still recommend that departments use the ‘Change of Chair’ form (annex 4.3.1: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/academic-manual/chapters/chapter-4-assessment-framework-taught-programmes ), to capture all the information that Faculties will require.
