The People Committee

The People Committee is established by the Board under Statute and Ordinance to give full and proper consideration to any proposals notified to it to dismiss members of academic and academic-related staff on grounds of redundancy.

For each instance, appropriate information is provided to the Committee to allow it to reach a reasoned assessment of the proposal and to consider alternative strategies for the resolution of the circumstances leading to the proposal. Its recommendations are then passed to the full Board of Governors for approval.
