Academic Senate and its Committees

University Education Committee (UEC)

The University Education Committee (UEC) is a subcommittee of Academic Senate. Its role is to provide leadership in the development of policies and strategies aimed at achieving the University's objectives in teaching and learning.

Chaired by Professor Joe Chicharo, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), the UEC is a forum for the University community to raise, discuss and review changes to learning and teaching policies and issues before they are sent to Academic Senate for endorsement.

MEMBERSHIP AND Terms of Reference

The UEC's membership and responsibilities are spelt out in its Terms of Reference which were most recently endorsed by Academic Senate on 26 October 2016.

UEC include positions for Student Representation. Find out more information or register your interest.

UEC Subcommittees

To conduct its business the UEC utilises subcommittees each responsible for their own teaching and learning-related areas:

  • Education Policy Review Subcommittee (EPRS)
  • Academic Quality & Standards Subcommittee (AQSS)
  • Student Support Subcommittee (SSS)

Membership of each of the subcommittees and links to their Terms of Reference are outlined below.

In addition to subcommittees, the UEC utilises Task and Finish groups to deal with specific, short-term issues. The number and structure of these groups changes regularly, to respond to changing priorities.

UEC Subcommittees include positions for Student Representation. Find out more information or register your interest.

Further information about UEC subcommittees, including Terms of Reference and membership, is available on the UEC Subcommittee page.
