Student Experience Committee


The Student Experience Committee (SEC) is a Committee of Council which monitors and considers the nature of the student experience at the University in order to ensure it meets agreed key performance indicators (KPIs) and the needs of stakeholders, especially students.  

Recognising Senate’s role as the academic authority of the University and the role of Senate committees in maintaining academic standards and enhancing academic quality, the Committee will monitor the quality of teaching, learning and research, taking cognisance of internal and external benchmarks and targets.  Noting Finance and Resources Committee’s responsibility for statutory equality and diversity compliance, the SEC will take responsibility for ensuring that there is a proactive approach to and effective engagement with equality and diversity across the constituent parts of the University, assuring that this reflects the University’s values and mission.
