The University of Lincolnshire & Humberside is seeking nominations to fill vacancies on its Board of Governors from November this year.


Retirements and the decision of the board to increase in number from 18 to 20 mean that a number of vacancies are being advertised and will be filled this summer.


The Board of Governors at ULH has a number of key responsibilities which include overseeing the financial health of the university and approving its academic character and mission.


The board has played a crucial role in overseeing and approving the current strategic

review and will play an important part in setting the strategic plan for the new University of Lincoln (from 1st October 2001).


Except for travel and subsistence allowances governors are unpaid and usually serve for a term of three years with a maximum of three terms.


The Board of Governors is seeking nominations from those who have:


·  a national standing (perhaps with a profile in higher education)

·  commercial expertise relevant to the university’s academic portfolio

·  a background in the public or voluntary sector

·  a background in the secondary education sector


Nominations should be sent in writing to the Clerk to the Governors, University of Lincolnshire & Humberside, Brayford Pool, Lincoln LN6 7TS. Correspondents should include a curriculum vitae or a detailed letter for consideration by the university’s Governance Committee. 


New governors appointed over the summer will begin their term of office on 1st November 2001.
