The three objectives we agreed for the programme are:
- To enable and encourage the university community to communicate and collaborate more effectively
- To promote inclusion, enhancing the sense of community for staff and students
- To enable and encourage collaboration between the university community and external partners
Yesterday I spoke to our new University Executive Board about how they might be more open and transparent in terms of release of Board agendas, minutes and papers, and how Freedom of Information and Data Protection Legislation might impact what is and isn't released. I must say, I'm really glad to see a change in culture with this move towards more transparent governance - it can only be a good thing.
