2.4 Scheme of Delegation

The purpose of the Scheme of Delegation is to outline the responsibilities and delegated authorities for making key decisions in the name of, or on behalf of, the University of Warwick.

Particular emphasis is placed on the powers reserved to and delegated from the Council, the ultimate decision making body of the University. Reference is also made to responsibilities for key decisions stipulated in the University’s Charter and Statutes, Ordinances, Regulations and published Policy. Other key decision making authorities, which are not formally recorded in the Governing Instruments or related to the responsibilities of the Council, are outlined in this Scheme. Whilst this Scheme of Delegation cannot be exhaustive, it does provide a frame of reference to inform decision making in other areas.

The current version of the Scheme of Delegation was approved by Council on 11 October 2023.
