How we operate

 

The CUC is managed by an Executive Committee comprised of four elected officers, representatives of the devolved nations, and up to three co-opted members chosen for their particular expertise to assist the Executive Committee.

 

The Executive Committee is supported by an Executive Secretary and a small secretariat team based at the University of the West of England, Bristol.
