Establishment of UCC’s New Governing Body 2023

The new Higher Education Authority Act 2022 has changed the composition of UCC’s Governing Body and the method by which members are elected/selected. The number of Governing Body members will reduce from 39 to 19 and will move from a representative based to a skills and competencies based model.

The new Governing Body will take office on 8th November 2023 and will have the following membership:

  • 10 external members (including the Chair)
  • 6 internal members (including the President)
  • 3 students

Two separate processes will take place for internal members:

  1. An internal election process for 3 UCC staff members (May/June 2023)
  2. A selection process for a Senior UCC Academic and a Senior UCC Researcher (May/June 2023)
