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 Board Elected Governors (elected in a personal capacity) and Community Elected Governors (elected by the constituencies of Parent Representatives [Dover and East] and Academic Staff [Dover and East]). The Board is also able to, in its absolute discretion, select a representative from various organisations who are not subject to election; however, there are no such Governors currently serving on the Board.

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

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