Footnote:

The University's Charter and Statutes provide for the governance of the University to be carried out by a number of persons and bodies, including the Senate and the Statutory Departments. The Statutes require these Departments to be grouped into Faculties, each having a Faculty Board. The Senate has resolved to change this method of governance, replacing the Faculties and Departments with academic Schools.

Pending changes to the Statutes which will require the approval of the Privy Council, transitional arrangements will apply which involve the delegation of the functions and powers of the Statutory Bodies to new bodies. Under these transitional arrangements, section (3) of the above Regulation is obsolete, the responsibilities of the Faculty Boards having been delegated to the School Boards.
