Opportunities for involvement in University life

Professor Guy Orpen

Welcome from Professor Guy Orpen, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost

As Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost, I am delighted to welcome you to this website where we publicise all opportunities for involvement in University governance.

The Board of Trustees (our governing body) and Senate (our principal academic body) and their various committees play an important role in University life, shaping new strategy and initiatives to help us maintain our position as a thriving international community dedicated to learning, discovery and enterprise.

This web site has been developed to ensure that opportunities to join University Committees are publicised openly to all staff, in an effort to improve the diversity of our decision-making bodies.  In addition, we use this resource to publicise vacancies on the Board of Trustees, Senate, external boards and other opportunities as they arise.


There are currently no vacancies for Senate, Faculty Representatives on Committees, or on External Boards. If any vacancies become available they will be advertised on this page.

 If you would like to advertise a vacancy, please contact the Governance team:
