Council formally approved the re-establishment of the ANU Academic Board in 2012.
The final papers contained a number of amendments to draft Academic Board Statute and Committee Rules based on feedback received.
Some of the changes to the Academic Board Statute were to ensure clarity of expression. The more substantive changes amended the membership slightly, included provision for increasing academic and cultural diversity, added the provision for alternates to attend meetings, and described (without prescribing) the expecting frequency of meetings.
Based on feedback received, amendments to the Committee Rules were also made to memberships and to the roles of the Committees.
