Summary

Two models for the structure of college/university Senates and Councils in in Western Australia are proposed, and 50 recommendations of the Tertiary Institutions Governance Committee are presented. The Committee reviewed the governance of: the Senates of the University of Western Australia and Murdoch University, and the Councils of the Western Australian Institute of Technology and the Western Australian College of Advanced Education. The two alternative models for Senates and Councils consider the need to achieve adequate representation of various interests and a balance of membership, including appointed members, ex officio appointments, elected members, co-opted members, and observers. Interests in the community that should be represented include: private sector employers, employees, women's interests, political appointees, staff association presidents, academic and general staff, and students. The Committee also examined the effectiveness of the Senates and Councils in safeguarding institutional autonomy and academic freedom and in assuring that the school is accountable. Specific functions include financial reporting, administrative and performance reviews, and policy accountability. Appended are extracts from the legislation stipulating the present Senate and Council structures. (SW)
