Welcome to the Birkbeck Governance and Committees Website

Birkbeck's governance structures ensure that the College has effective strategic leadership and executive management to fulfill its mission as a leading research and evening teaching institution.

  • Governors: The Governing Body, referred to in the College as Governors, is collectively responsible for overseeing all of Birkbeck's activities.
  • Committees: Governors and College management are supported by a number of Committees. Their role is to oversee and advise on specific areas of activity and, in certain cases, to exercise powers delegated to them by the Governing Body.
