Corporate Governance

Information Matters!

That's the theme and the message of our awareness campaign.  It launched with a whole week of information governance events in January 2015, the campaign ran througout the whole of 2015... with a fantastic new training package, Communicator articles, Staff Essentials emails, posters, guidance and much much more!

The value of well managed, accurate, timely and secure information can be overlooked, but it underpins so many of the services we provide and activities we undertake. Often, just a small improvement in the way information is treated can have a significant, positive effect on a student's experience of the University, or on the working lives of ourselves and colleagues.
