A Business Guide for University Governors

Tags: business case | governors | chairs

Economic, social and environmental sustainability is about assuring the future through developing resilience and adaptability in staff and students, through building coherence and synergies across all university operations, and ensuring our sector’s impact is beneficial at all levels. Many universities already play a significant positive role through their governance, research, teaching and learning, campus management and use, business and investment, and their impact on staff, students and local community.

The aim of this guide is to demonstrate the business benefits that your university can capitalise on by making Sustainability Resilience and Opportunity a top team, top table issue, one that complements and enriches current agendas.

This guide has been developed by the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC), with support from the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (LFHE) and the Committee of University Chairs (CUC); working together to lead change.
