Senate was established on 1 September 2010 and has primary responsibility for oversight of the academic activity of Queen Mary including, amongst other things, academic standards, academic freedom and research.  Senate was established following a review of Queen Mary's governance arrangements and replaces Academic Board.  A number of the subcommittees have also changed or are no longer in operation.
