Academic Board

The Education Act 1989 requires Council to establish an academic board to advise Council on matters relating to courses of study or training, awards, and other academic matters. The Academic Board is not a committee of Council, although for convenience it is deemed to be one for the purposes of receiving and exercising delegated authority from Council.
