About us

Governance

University of Essex

Council

The University Council is our executive governing body, responsible for the management and administration of our revenue and property. The Council is entrusted with the proper conduct of University business in support of the objectives defined by the University Charter and Statutes:

  • strategic planning
  • financial affairs, including the annual budget
  • estates management
  • staffing matters
  • health and safety issues
  • oversight of the Students' Union

Members of Council

There are 25 members of Council, the majority of whom are external. There are currently two vacancies for external members of Council. Expressions of interest should be made to the Registrar and Secretary at registra@essex.ac.uk in the first instance. The role description for members of Council provides further information about the role and its responsibilities.

Meetings of Council

Council normally meets four times a year, usually at our Colchester Campus. The dates and times of meetings of Council and it's sub-committees can be found in the University dairy of the academic year.
