Governance

Robert Gordon’s College’s Board of Governors is responsible for the governance, overall management and control of all aspects of our school.

Our Board of Governors comprises Appointed and Co-opted members who may be part of the College community as well as representatives of important and historical institutions within the City of Aberdeen and is supported by a number of committees and sub-committees.

Sub-committee members are appointed either to provide specific expertise, or to represent a section of the Gordon’s community, across the following areas: Health and Safety, Education, Finance and Property, Staff Affairs (Welfare), Scholarship (and Bursaries), Audit and Risk Management, Remuneration, Nominations and Development (including Alumni Relations).

The Governors delegate the day to day running of the College to our Head of College and Senior Management Team and report on the College’s activities and finances in their Annual Report and Financial Statements. The annual report is filed on the Scottish charity regulator (OSCR) website.   

Professor Hutchison, Chairman of Governors

"Our Governors’ role is to act as a trustee of a legally-constituted board, to plan and develop the strategic objectives and ensure the financial health of Robert Gordon's College and further so that the school complies with its legal requirements. It is a truly remarkable environment for education and we are committed to ensuring the tradition of excellence on which it was founded continues for generations to come."
