Academic Board meetings
Meetings are open to the public, except for confidential items.
See below for dates of upcoming Academic Board meetings. Meetings are held in the Hunter Council Chamber, unless otherwise indicated.
Members choosing to sit in the gallery are kindly requested to use the roving microphone if they wish to speak. Unless members wish to speak to, or respond to, an agenda item, it is acceptable to arrive late or leave early, for teaching or other commitments.
Non-members may attend for the public part of the meeting (Parts A and B of the agenda; not Part C) and should sit in the gallery. Non-members may seek leave of the convener to speak but will have no right to move or second a motion or any amendment or vote on any matter before the Board.

Agenda and papers
Any member of the University staff may apply to the executive officer to receive agendas and papers for the public section of any meeting of the Board. View the agendas, papers and minutes of the Board.
Part A of the agenda is discussed. Part B items that require approval are automatically approved unless a member requests that an item be brought forward to Part A. Part C is the confidential, public-excluded part of the agenda. Part C agendas and papers are only made available to members.
Notice of meeting and attendance
The executive officer distributes the agenda and papers by email to all members five business days prior to the meeting. Non-members are welcome to attend meetings, except when public-excluded items are discussed. All attendees are asked to sign an attendance register that is circulated at each meeting.
If a dean, pro vice-chancellor, head of school, or student member is not able to attend a meeting, they should notify the executive officer. The convener may allow another member to attend in the absent member’s stead.
A special meeting of the Board may be called at any time by the University Council or the Vice-Chancellor/Convener. A special meeting can also be requested by six members, who should write to the executive officer outlining the matter to be discussed.
