The Assembly is not a decision-making body, but it is able to make recommendations to the University Council and the Senate. The outcome of the Assembly meeting will be reported to the forthcoming Council and Senate meetings taking place on 17 October 2018.
Further details of the next steps will be shared as the motion is further discussed at Senate and Council.
