Senior Management Team (SMT)

The SMT is responsible for the oversight of the School’s strategy and implementation across Research, Education, Resources, Faculty and Professional Services and feeds directly into the College of Social Science’s College Board. Meeting bi-monthly the SMT is also a forum for disseminating information and key updates from the College and the wider University community.
