Reminder: General Council Business Committee nominations

Are you interested in becoming a member of the General Council Business Committee? It's your opportunity to learn more about the working of the University at a time of change, and to guide the programme for the General Council, the alumni body that contributes to its governance.

The committee's agenda is broad and we need a breadth of skills, experience and backgrounds to fulfil our role. We are lucky to have an alumni community that offers us just that, so we encourage everyone to consider the role and to nominate.

The General Council and the committee

To get an idea of how the General Council fits into the University structure, the work it carries out, and its events, please take a look at the information on its website:
