The Council Handbook helps Council members and members of Council committees and includes detailed information about the University's governance and management.
It is supported by the Council Charter. The Charter sets out the role and responsibilities of the Council and its members, responsibilities delegated to committees or management as well as the membership and operation of the Council.
While the handbook has been prepared primarily for Council members, there is relevant information for the wider University community including:
- The University Council's role in governance
- Council's key areas of focus
- Key governance roles at UON
- Membership of Council and relevant policies
- Council operations
- Council effectiveness
- Other useful resources
