Organisation Structu.. - Loughborough University

Report
An overview of the organisational
structure, functions and
managerial roles
Created for the ILM (Institute of Leadership
and Management) Level 5 programme
University Structure
• In August 2011 Loughborough University moved away
from a structure of 24 academic departments and
established ten academic schools. However for external
marketing purposes the academic departments still
appear on the web site.
• These departments still exist as recognised structures
within some of the Schools and still have Heads
although the role of the new Heads is much less
significant than the old HoDs as many responsibilities
have moved to the School Deans and Associate Deans.
• The overriding aim of the restructure was to ensure that
the University is fit for purpose and emerges from the
current climate of reduced resources stronger than ever.
• It retains its six interdisciplinary research schools.
Main objectives of the restructuring
• Ensure the University is fit for purpose in the face of a
changing and challenging external environment.
• Enhance communications, improve and standardise
systems and eliminate duplication of effort.
• Create robust team-based operational structures to
improve efficiency and reduce the reliance on key
individuals.
• Facilitate the sharing of staff and physical resource.
• Create an executive in which the academic body is
strongly represented.
• To create a Senior Management Team in each school
comprising of Associate Deans for Research, Teaching
and Enterprise and an Operational Manager.

The 6 Interdisciplinary Research
Schools
These facilitate research across traditional boundaries.
They do not physically exist, but draw staff from the 10
Schools. The interdisciplinary research groupings are:
• Health and Life Sciences
• Informatics
• Materials
• Sustainability
• Systems Engineering
• Design
The Management Structure
• The most senior staff at the University are its Officers.
Loughborough's Chancellor - the University’s Senior Ambassador is Sir Nigel Rudd, who presides over meetings of the University
Court. Court is not a formal body but has a role in public relations
and communications for the University. The Chancellor is also an
ex-officio member of the University Council and confers degrees on
its graduates.
• The Senior Pro Chancellor, Sir Peter Bonfield, is chair of the
University Council. University Council is the University's governing
body and is formally accountable to HEFCE and other stakeholders
for the good governance of the institution.
• The day-to-day running of the University is the responsibility of the
Vice-Chancellor who is the academic and executive head. The ViceChancellor works closely with executive colleagues and the
Academic Leadership Team.
