Organisational Structure

Our Responsibility and Accountability

The Vice Chancellor is accountable to the University Council for implementing the Strategic Plan.

To ensure functional and accountable governance, University work units are organised around six executive leads for key thematic areas of operations: Research, Academic, Students, Engagement, Finance, and Operations. Each has a portfolio work plan to align with the objectives and ultimately deliver the strategic goal.
