Staff Governors

All universities have a governing body. Oxford Brookes University's Board of Governors currently has 14 members, including 2 Staff Governors – one teaching and one non-teaching. The Board is responsible for setting the educational character and mission of the University.

Governors must be committed to the success of the University, and have the skills and experience to enable them to contribute effectively to the work of the Board. The role of Governor is unpaid, although the University will pay reasonable travel and other expenses.

The University enables staff to take on the role of Staff Governor by providing the same support as for other Voluntary Public Bodies.
