An introduction to the Governance Unit

Dr Glenn Nicholls

Thank you for visiting Deakin’s Governance Unit website. Here you can learn about the University’s central decision making bodies: Council, Academic Board and the Planning and Resources Committee.

Members of the Governance Unit support these bodies through the provision of excellent organisational, information and secretariat services. Ensuring that our decision making bodies are expertly supported is integral to Deakin’s vibrant, inclusive culture.

The Unit trusts that you find the site useful. Please use the feedback links if you would like further information or have questions or suggestions for us.
