Standing Orders

The University's Council and Senate have approved Standing Orders: Regulations for Committees.

The Standing Orders regulate arrangements for committee meetings and stipulate requirements in respect of such matters as:

  • quorum and adjournment
  • schedule and notice of meetings
  • conduct of business at meetings
  • committee papers and minutes
  • attendance at committee meetings
  • suspension of standing orders

The Standing Orders were approved by Senate and Council to apply, as appropriate, to committees established by and within the University of Salford. 

A Committee Handbook containing complementary detailed guidance on the operation of University committees and incorporating these Standing Orders has been developed by the Legal and Governance Directorate in collaboration with Student and Academic Support.
