About us

Governance

University of Essex

Court

The Court of the University of Essex is a formal body, established under Charter and Statutes, which encourages local stakeholders to have an active interest in the University, be formally associated with it and comment on how we operate. An annual meeting of Court is attended by invited stakeholders including our alumni and local MPs. The annual meeting is also an informal social occasion for Court members to meet each other and senior members of University staff.

The Court processes involve:

Members

The Court has around 250 members, including:

  • senior University office holders;
  • members of academic staff and students; and
  • a wide range of external members.

Up to 200 external members are appointed by the Council, the University's governing body, on the recommendation of its Nominations Committee.

Court members are appointed on the basis of their interests, expertise or other connections with the University. We aim to ensure that members are broadly representative of the local community. There are no formal obligations or duties on members as such, but the University hopes that members will attend the annual meeting on a regular basis.
