Academic Registry and Council Secretariat

Governance menu


Council is the governing body of QMUL. Comprising twenty one members, of whom 12 are external members, Council is responsible for overseeing the strategic mission, direction and affairs of the institution. Council sits at the pinnacle of QMUL's corporate governance framework.

Council convenes on five occasions per year. In order to undertake its duties effectively Council delegates decision-making in designated areas of QMUL activities to a suite of sub-Committees, including Finance and Investment Committee, Audit and Risk Committee, Governance Committee and Remuneration Committee. Senate - technically a sub-Committee of Council, is also supported by a number of sub-Committees.

Executive authority for development and implementation of QMUL's  Strategy 2014 - the next five years and wider strategic framework rests with Queen Mary Senior Executive (QMSE). The institution's Delegation Framework [PDF 280KB] details authority for decision-making in both the executive and governance spheres.

The membership and responsibilities of QMSE can be found on the Principal's webpages.  

The Secretary to Council is Jonathan Morgan. Please contact Nadine Lewycky, Assistant Registrar (Governance) in the first instance.
