Good practice governance at the University of Wollongong (UOW) is facilitated through the provision of Gold Standard Committee Service.

The four key goals of Gold Standard Committee Service at UOW are:

  • An integrated and focused committee framework;

  • Informed and responsible committee members;

  • A framework for efficient and effective decision making; and

  • Enhanced committee operations through evaluation, review and improvement.


The Handbook contains the Guidelines for the Provision of Gold Standard Committee Service at UOW. The guidelines are supported by templates and reference material to assist the implementation of Gold Standard Committee Service at UOW.
