The Student Experience Committee (SEC) is a Committee of Council which monitors and considers the nature of the student experience at the University in order to ensure it meets agreed key performance indicators (KPIs) and the needs of stakeholders, especially students.
Recognising Senate’s role as the academic authority of the University and the role of Senate committees in maintaining academic standards and enhancing academic quality, the Committee will monitor the quality of teaching, learning and research, taking cognisance of internal and external benchmarks and targets. Noting Finance and Resources Committee’s responsibility for statutory equality and diversity compliance, the SEC is responsible for ensuring a proactive approach and effective engagement with inclusion, equality and diversity.
