Where can I find EG minutes?
The Executive Group, or EG, is the Vice-Chancellor and President's executive committee responsible for the day-to-day running of the University. The Executive Group meets weekly on Tuesday, with membership widened approximately once a month to include the Faculty Deans, Dean of the Graduate School, Dean for Internationalisation and Director of Human Resources. These meetings are known as EG+.
EG minutes can be found on the Governance pages of the University of Kent website. Minutes of EG and EG+ meetings this academic year are available to all University of Kent staff.
Which email accounts are owned by the Office of the Vice-Chancellor?
These are the only email addresses owned and controlled by the OVC.
Acfirstname.lastname@example.org covers Deans and Heads of School. Psdemail@example.com covers Heads of Professional Service Departments. The membership of these email accounts mirrors that of senior-leadership. Any member of University of Kent staff can send to these accounts.
firstname.lastname@example.org is a closed account which covers EG, Deans, Heads of Schools and Heads of Professional Service Departments and their PAs. This email is only used for official communications and if you are a member of Senior Leadership Forum and wish to send to the group, please send your email to email@example.com for approval and forwarding.
Are there any funds I can access?
The Office of the Vice-Chancellor has a modest budget to support the Executive Group. It is not avaliable for university activity that would be the responsibility of a School or Department.
The OVC does however have a dedicated fund to support Schools and Departments with events with an external focus. More information about the Discretionary Fund and Distinguished Visitor Lectures can be found here.
