Bishop Grosseteste University’s governance structure has been developed to uphold the key values and practices on which the effective governance of UK HEIs is based.
Like the majority of higher education institutions, Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) is a public body and as such, we are required to be open and transparent in our conduct and are also subject to the requirements of regulatory and funding bodies and the Committee of University Chairs Higher Education Code of Governance.
BGU’s governance structure enables us to fulfil our strategic objectives and ensure we are well managed and accountable to our stakeholders.
There are three main decision making bodies in the University that are central to the governance structure; these are the Council, the Senate and the University Senior Leadership Team. The links along the left of the page define this leadership structure, key documents, policies and procedures, financial information and details how the University is run.
