Developing leadership at every level.

Academic leadership and management

Leadership and management groups


The Faculty sets its own strategic plan, priorities, and objectives aligning all its constituent parts to University strategy and ensures delivery of its key performance indicators (KPIs) subject to agreement with the SIPC and UEB.  It considers and approves the plans of its departments.


Departments are at the heart of the delivery of an inclusive culture and vibrant student and staff experience.  The Departments manage their activities and develop their own intellectual vision to deliver research and education academic programmes and the staff and student experience within the strategic and policy framework as set and agreed by the Faculty/ School or University.  Within the department there may be several distinctive disciplines or major programmes/ research centres. They are led by a Head of Department.

The roles featured in the new arrangements are summarised in the Faculty Structure chart and described in the table below.
