Policy, Advice and Strategy

The Policy, Advice and Strategy department assists the Faculty Board in developing and implementing its policies and procedures. The department is staffed by employees who deal with a variety of specific policy issues, as well as project managers, and administrative support personnel. The Board Secretary heads the department.

The Department is tasked with the overall management of the Faculty’s policies and procedures. Its staff provides the administrative support for a variety of Faculty-wide advisory committees and other regularly occurring meetings and consultations.  The Department also coordinates the development and implementation of the Faculty’s policies on teaching, research, impact, PhDs, and diversity. BAS employees have developed and maintain an overview of all the documents approved by the Faculty Board (for instance on policies, regulations, and procedures). This overview is accessible to all of the Faculty’s staff and can be found in the Faculty Board's Matrix.

The Educational Advice and Quality Assurance team is a group within the BAS Department that works on the development and implementation of the Faculty’s educational policy. The team is managed by a team leader.

The Policy and Management Support Department coordinates the appointment of student and staff members to a number of administrative committees and boards, such as various Programme Boards, Departmental Teaching Committees, and Boards of Examiners.
