Summary of Changes from Previous Version

Amendments to the Academic Board regulations are made periodically to ensure the membership remains fit for purpose.
This proposal is to amend the Academic Board Regulations to:
1. Revise the Ex-Officio membership to:
I. Add the President, RMIT Vietnam Student Council. The introduction of this position to the Academic Board membership responds to a recommendation of the 2018 Independent Review of Academic Board.
II. Replace the Academic Director RMIT Online with the Chief Executive Officer RMIT Online. The Academic Director role at RMIT has remained vacant since early 2020.
III. Make minor updates to position title where there is no substantive change to the underlying functions.

2. Revise the Elected membership to:
I. Correct a typographical error and revert to one Head of School, Dean or Executive Dean from each higher education college elected by the academic staff of each college.
II. Increase the number of members elected by and from the professors of the University occupying a Level E appointment, not including honorary or adjunct professors from two to four.

3. Revise the eligibility provisions for the Chair to provide clarity and improve procedural effectiveness.
