Committee Resource Centre

This resource centre provides a collection of materials to assist with supporting University committees, working parties or simply arranging meetings. These resources will assist people who are involved in writing agendas, minutes, agenda papers, arranging meeting logistics and those who participate in activities to do with the governance of Faculties, institutes and other areas.

The Governance Unit is committed to providing exemplary service to the formal committees of the University and is invested in sharing the resources and knowledge that provides the framework for this important function.
