UWCSEA Board of Governors

UWCSEA benefits from a highly experienced Board of Governors. The role of the Board is to set direction, establish policies, ensure accountability, and provide leadership to improve the learning environment for students at the College. The Board draws a clear line between governance and management and operates at a strategic level. It does not involve itself in the day-to-day running of the College.

The Board is made up of members elected by the constituencies of Interested Parties and by members elected in a personal capacity (Ad Personam) by the Board acting as a Nominations Committee. There are also some members selected to represent various organisations who are not subject to election.

The Board meets formally four times a year. Between meetings, Board Members are expected to serve on one of the five Board Committees: Audit and Risk, Education and Talent, Engagement, Finance and Infrastructure, and Governance. Board Members may also be asked to assist with matters on an ad hoc basis.

At meetings, Board Members are expected to base their views on an impartial assessment of the available facts and hence act and vote according to conscience and judgment. On a less formal basis, Board members support College events and functions, and are advocates of the College within the wider community.
