Empowering Managers, Assuring Governors: The Introduction of Dual Assurance at the University of Exeter
Weale, Gillian
Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, v14 n2 p49-55 Apr 2010
Since the start of the academic session 2007-08, the University of Exeter has been operating a unique system of governance known as dual assurance, which has replaced a more traditional system of committees sitting under Council, the governing body. This paper describes the background to the development of dual assurance at Exeter, and the reasons for its introduction, and sets it in the context of current governance issues in the sector.
