Governance at City University London.
The University is an independent corporation, granted the status of university by Royal Charter in 1966. The Charter defines the University Council as the governing body of the University that is ultimately responsible for the affairs of the University.
The University's Governance structure includes a framework of responsibilities delegated from the Council.
The Council delegates some of its powers to four key bodies: the Senate, Audit and Risk Committee; Remuneration Committee and Corporate Governance and Nominations Committee. It also delegates authority to the Vice-Chancellor. Each year the Council provides a Corporate Governance Statement which forms part of the Financial Statements and which describes the committees and their work throughout the year. Read the statement for 2013/14.
The governance of the University is supported by the Governance Team.
