Cardiff University is made up of 24 academic schools which are split between three Colleges. The College of Arts Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS), Biomedical and Life Sciences (BLS) and Physical Sciences and Engineering (PSE).
The Students’ Union holds College Forum meetings which are like higher-level Student Staff Panels. They bring together the Chairs of the all the Student Staff Panel to discuss college wide issues, so for example if a school-level problem isn’t being solved it can be brought to a College Forum.
Chairs are expected to go along to these meeting. Senior members of staff also attend these meetings like the Pro Vice Chancellor for Student Experience and Academic Standards, the Deans of the Colleges and representatives from IT and Library.
This is a really good opportunity for Chairs to share best practice in their college. They can share ideas and solutions to common problems with their peers.
