About Campus Council:

The Campus Councils were created with the responsibility to preserve the regional character while giving greater autonomy to the Campuses to respond to national needs and those of the non-campus countries.

The governing body of the St. Augustine Campus is the Campus Council, which is established by Statute under the Charter. The Campus Council meets annually, largely to receive detailed reports from officers and committees, which have responsibilities, that derive from the Charter statements and other instruments such as academic and curriculum updates; changing statistics on students with regards to enrolment and graduate throughput; staffing issues and strategic initiatives that have been undertaken.

A fundamental aspect of the accountability of The University of the West Indies is the annual meeting of the Campus Council, where Annual and Faculty Reports are presented. The Financial Report each year ending 31st July is submitted to the Campus Finance and General Purposes Committee for consolidation and approval en route to the Campus Council and then to the University Council for final approval. 

The Chairman of the St. Augustine Campus Council is Mr. Ewart Williams. The Vice-Chancellor, Pro Vice-Chancellor & Campus Principal, Pro Vice- Chancellor, Planning & Development Deputy Principal, Campus Bursar, Deans, Academic Board representatives and Guild representatives among other University Executive Management will be present.
