Nominations for eligible members of academic and research staff to join the University Senate open tomorrow, Wednesday 1 March.

This is an opportunity to play a part in the University’s supreme academic body, shaping our University’s plans and the delivery of teaching, learning and research in alignment with Strategy 2030.
