Board of Governors – expressions of interest

The University welcomes expressions of interest from prospective candidates for membership of the Board of Governors.

The Board of Governors is the University’s governing body. The Board is the most senior authority within the University, responsible under the University’s Articles of Association for “determining the educational character and mission of the University, for stewardship of its resources and for oversight of its activities”. The Board is also responsible for the University’s compliance with the Office for Students and its regulatory framework for Higher Education in England. For further information, see the Board’s Statement of Primary Responsibilities.

We seek a variety of skills derived from a range of occupations and professions, and from candidates at different points in their careers.

London Met’s Board of Governors view the University’s commitment to promoting equality as being not only a strategic imperative but a concept fundamental to the DNA of our institution. The pursuit of equity and social justice is a driver in everything we do at London Met. In March 2021 the Board approved the adoption of the target that, to reflect the London adult population[1], 55% of the University’s Board and its sub-committees will be from a black or minoritised background by 2025. This target forms part of the University’s Race Equity Strategic Plan. Therefore we would particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic individuals, women, LGBTQ+ and candidates living with a disability. Read more about our diverse community and our commitments to inclusion and equality.
