The Board

First Board Meeting, 7 April 1982

Since 2005, The Warren Centre has worked with the University on how best to respond to the new University Governance regime which in turn to changes in legislation and contemporary governance practice.

An integral part of this work has been to ensure that the Centre continues to meet the objectives set by the Founders and Founding Donors and preserves the concept and operating approach that have been a feature of The Warren Centre’s success since opening in May 1983.
