Profile of governors
We are looking for high calibre individuals capable of playing a leading role in the School, not only through the Court’s externally focused representations and strategic discussions, but also potentially as a member of the Council (the governing body) and its sub-committees. The names of current governors can be found at Membership.
Governors do not have to be alumni, but enthusiasm for the School and the social sciences is essential.
We need governors with senior level experience in the public, private or voluntary sector, who would reflect the diversity of the staff/student body on the Court and who would contribute to extending the School's network of contacts.
Criteria for the Court of governors
balance of youth and experience
improved gender balance
ability to ensure regular attendance at Court meetings (usually three per year)
Areas of expertise of particular interest to the School are: finance, property, audit, health & safety, fundraising and marketing
The LSE is committed to upholding equality and diversity, and a desire to increase the representation of governors from minority ethnic groups on Court demonstrates how we are seeking to implement our duty to promote race equality, as set out in the Equality Act 2010. Applications from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic groups will, therefore, be particularly welcomed. Equally, we aim to achieve a 50/50 gender balance on the Court and are keen to appoint more women as Governors.
