History

CUC began life as a meeting of chairs of university governing bodies in 1986, which became known as the Committee of Chairmen of University Councils (CCUC).

 

In 1993, CCUC merged with the Standing Committee of New University Chairmen to form the Committee of Chairmen of University Councils and Boards (CCUCaB). In 1996, the group became the Committee of University Chairmen (CUC), which was more recently changed to the Committee of University Chairs to reflect the increasing diversity of its membership.
