Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 29 November 2011
A review of current internal governance arrangements in providing strategic direction, oversight and scrutiny.

It issued a questionnaire to all Welsh Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) about their current governance arrangements, issued a call for written evidence and interviewed a number of stakeholders. It will report in March 2011.

The investigative study supports the Group by:

  • undertaking a comparative review of alternative HE governance arrangements;
  • drawing on the available literature, concentrating on the governance of the HE sector as a whole and more particularly, the institutional relationships between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and Government;
  • deepening the understanding of the current governance arrangements within Welsh HE emerging from the questionnaire.
