Report template and information

University Council and its committees need timely information, context and advice in advance of their meetings. This helps ensure good decisions are made in the best interest of the University.

Papers are provided to Council Members seven days before the scheduled meeting.

Council’s information needs are quite specific and using these tools, templates and resources will help ensure your report provides the key elements of strategy, risk, financial value and operational impact that Council members require so they can undertake the necessary analysis of an issue.Need to prepare a paper for Council?
