Council of the School of the Physical Sciences (CSPS)

The Council of the School is the senior body with statutory responsibility for the work of the School.

Under Statute A, the duties of the Council include:

  • The preparation of such academic and financial plans and reports as the General Board shall determine.
  • The allocation of funds made available to it by the General Board amongst the institutions comprising the School.
  • Working with the institutions which comprise the School to ensure institutional and School plans are consistent, realistic and affordable.
  • Consideration of any matter referred to it by the General Board.

In practice, the Council of the School delegates much of its responsibility to various committees, but retains ultimate responsibility.  It however retains direct responsibility for:

  • Setting the overall strategy and plans for the School;
  • Education issues;
  • Appointments to University Bodies;
  • Responses to University consultations on matters that are not resource management;
  • Fundraising;
  • School Governance.

The Council is also the forum for discussions on wider ranging University issues or developments, that are not specifically do to with resource management, and often involves a speaker from outside the School.
