Welcome to Cardiff University Committee Support's home page.

The Committee Support Team

Committee Support is headed by Sharon Orton (Governance Manager) and supported by Lisa Williams, Sarah Hanks (Committee Support Coordinators) and a small team of administrative and distribution staff. See our Contact Us page for more detailed information.

Committee Support provides effective and efficient support to the University in its pursuit of excellence in teaching and research. Much of our work is focussed on the smooth running of the committees that underpin the governance of the University. We also act as the co-ordinating division for the provision and distribution of general information for staff and committee members.

Our main function is to co-ordinate the business and arrangements for the main committee meetings. This includes the Calendar of Meetings, membership of committees, and printing and distribution of all committee papers.

All amendments to the Charter and Statutes and Ordinances are considered by Senate and approved by Council. Current versions are available from our Governance page.

Accessibility and Translation 

Members are encouraged to contact Committee Support on 029 20874297 or email to discuss any requirements they may have that will assist with their attendance at meetings. Welsh translation and interpretation facilities for non-Welsh-speaking members at meetings conducted in the medium of Welsh will be provided if necessary.  Please give as much notice as possible of this requirement.  We do our best to ensure that University committee meetings are accessible to all attendees and book our rooms through the University's room booking system.  If you need specific information relating to the accessibility of Cardiff University's meeting rooms, please contact the Estates team directly or see their accessibility information here.
