Committees

ANU has a number of committees that provide advice to the Council, the Academic Board and the Vice-Chancellor on a range of matters including, finance, audit and risk management, education, research and honorary degrees. These committees help us maintain our high standards, meet our strategic objectives, consider emerging opportunities and challenges, and provide mechanisms for transparency and accountability.
