University committees are a core component of the University's governance structure and decision-making processes. In addition to ensuring decisions are fully considered and formally recorded, they are used for consultation and communication, both internally and externally.
Committees draw members from across the University, continuing to make a key contribution to collegiality at Loughborough, and are essential for the effective handling of much University business.
Discussing issues and making decisions through committees ensures that the University is operating transparently and is accountable for its activities. In appropriate circumstances, to support speedy handling of business, certain committee powers have been delegated to individual officers
