THE SECRETARY TO THE COUNCIL

The Chief Administrative Officer, Ms Melva Crouch, is the Secretary to the Council. She is responsible for the preparation and issue of all Council documents. She is assisted by the Deputy Secretary, Dr Nancy Huggett.

STATUS OF COUNCIL COMMITTEES

The Act provides that the Council may by resolution delegate all or any of its powers and functions under the Act, except the power of delegation itself, to any members or to any committee of its members, or to any officer or officers of the University. Committees of Council may decide matters within delegations received from the Council, but otherwise make recommendations to the Council.
