In 2017, Advance HE completed a review and update of the Framework for Supporting Governing Body Effectiveness Reviews in Higher Education with guidance published in the same year.
In carrying out the Framework review and update, the research indicated that providers would value comparative information, insights and intelligence, in order to learn from each other. Advance HE has used its governance effectiveness survey tool (designed as part of the Framework and used in institutional governance reviews) comprising 32 core questions organised around nine key Framework areas to collect anonymised data from 20 institutions. This report is based on that data.
This report is the first in an intended series. As the dataset grows over time the series will present a picture of the shifts in priorities, performance and challenges, and potentially draw a picture of the changing landscape of HE providers. This report focuses on current performance and challenges.
The full report is available to Advance HE members.
