The Faculty Boards deal with all matters concerning the maintenance of academic quality and any other academic matters at a Faculty level.
There is a Faculty Board for each of the University's nine faculties—as well as Toihuarewa, a forum for Māori academic issues at the University:
- Architecture and Design Innovation
- Wellington School of Business and Government (Commerce)
- Graduate Research
- Humanities and Social Sciences
Each of the nine boards is convened by the relevant Dean. Members include all academic staff teaching in the faculty as well as student representatives. Each board is a subcommittee of the Academic Board.
One of Toihuarewa’s primary roles is to ensure there is appropriate Māori content in the University's teaching and research programmes.
