Duties and Responsibilities of a member of the Academic Board
Members - Roles and responsibilities
All Board members have a responsibility to:
- read the agenda papers
- attend meetings and participate in discussion
- be prepared to consider options and to vote on motions
- consider the implications of decisions on the efficiency, effectiveness and public standing of the
University
- participate in occasional working parties or other support activities
- consult with constituencies as appropriate, and within the limits of confidentiality where required
- keep the Chairperson, Secretary or Committee Officer informed if they cannot attend a meeting or meet
any particular deadlines.
All members, ex officio and appointed members, have a responsibility to act in the best interest of the Board and
the University.
Members bring to the Board their unique experience, expertise, values, insights and interests; including interests,
some members may have in particular segments of the University community. When participating in the decision-
making of the Board, each member should seek to support decisions which provide the greatest benefit to the
University. In this regard, members are expected to put forward their own points of view but ones that take into
account the needs and requirements of the University.
Members - Declaration of Conflicts of Interest
Members are required to bring to the Chairperson’s attention any actual, potential or perceived conflict of interest
that they might experience as a Board member.
This could arise as a result of the Board discussing a matter in which a member might have a direct interest (e.g.
a financial interest). Depending on the matter, it may be sufficient for the member to be absent from the meeting
during consideration of the item, or to refrain from voting on a motion.
The Chairperson, in consultation with the Secretary, will advise on the most appropriate action when informed of
the potential conflict of interest.

Chairperson with a copy to the Secretary.
The letter should contain a brief explanation for the resignation and the expected date of resignation. This will
allow for any preparation to fill the vacancy left by the resigning member in a timely manner.
