Co-optees; their role is to:
- support and champion the work of the Corporation, the College, its students and staff.
- support a specific Committee which is identified by the Corporation (each Committee normally meets a minimum of three times per year).
- provide input, advice and professional expertise to assist Corporation Committees in their work, arising from their personal and professional experience and expertise on matters pertaining to the strategic direction of the College.
Co-optee appointments provide valuable expertise in their area of skills and experience. However, they do not have to make the full time commitment or take on the full range of responsibilities of College Governors. Co-optees are not full Governors and do not have a vote on Corporation matters.
