The University Executive Board (UEB) was established in November 2013. Led by the Vice-Chancellor, it’s the senior decision-making group of the University, with corporate responsibility for managing the business of the institution. The UEB meets every 2 weeks to discuss strategy, policy and resourcing matters.
The UEB works in partnership with the Board of Governors to determine the character, identity and strategic direction of the University. It also advises the Vice-Chancellor on all decisions and actions necessary for the conduct of the University and for the achievement of its objectives.
Our Board Appointees, alongside the Executive Director of Human Resources and the Executive Deans from our 5 Faculties, are members of the UEB.
Professor Graham Galbraith joined the University in 2013 as Vice-Chancellor and in this role is our Chief Executive and Chief Academic Officer. He is also the Chief Accountable Officer to the Office for Students that currently regulates UK Universities.
It's our Vice-Chancellor's job to deliver our University Mission and Strategic Plan by providing a world leading student experience alongside internationally-recognised research and innovation solutions that engage with business and respond to the needs of society.
Professor Galbraith shapes the strategic direction of the University in partnership with the Board of Governors, manages key senior staff including the Board Appointees, Chairs the University Executive Board and leads the development of the key delivery plans which underpin the achievement of the University Strategy. He is also a full member of the Board of Governors.
Passionate about the transformative power of higher education, Professor Galbraith's experience, entrepreneurial outlook and track record of academic achievement provide the leadership necessary for the future success of the University.
