Standards in governance

Staffordshire University is fully committed to promoting effective, well-informed and accountable corporate and charitable governance, enabling the highest standards of ethical conduct.

In March 2005, the Board of Governors formally adopted the CUC (Committee of University Chairmen) Governance Code of Practice and General Principles

Members of the Board of Governors are expected to uphold the Staffordshire University Code of Conduct for Governors as well as the Nolan Principles (The 7 Principles of Public Life)

Prevent duty guidance

Under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, relevant higher education bodies (RHEBs) must have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism (the Prevent duty). The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) is responsible for monitoring whether RHEBs are demonstrating due regard to the Prevent duty. 

All members of Staffordshire University's Board of Governors are required to complete a comprehensive online Prevent training course. 

The Prevent Duty Guidance for England and Wales is available in full on the Home Office's website.
