Academic Board (AcB)
The primary academic committee is the Academic Board. It is made up of internal members and currently has one external observer, Greg Clarke (formerly Associate Secretary, University of Salford).
The LCC Principal chairs the Board and its membership includes Senior Academics, Heads of Departments, Programme Managers and Registrar plus up to Student Representatives.
The AcB’s key role is to sign-off all academic decisions and it is the sovereign academic body of LCC. The AcB sends the minutes of its meetings to the College Oversight Board (COB) to communicate to that Board what it has agreed academically. The COB uses academic information to help revise the College Strategic Plan, as the Board needs both an understanding of the business needs and academic needs of the LCC, to inform its thinking.
