Academic Governance

Institute of Applied Technology is entering a period of growth and expansion and given its short history (IAT has been established in 2005) there is an urgent need for agile, innovative responsiveness to both internal and external circumstances, opportunity and change. Furthermore, recent exposure to external accreditation standards have revealed some gaps in the Institute government that need to be addressed. In response to these challenges, IAT Senior Management, with guidance and support from Board of Trustees, have undertaken a major effort to establish a governing model that allows for an efficient and effective academic decision making process that is responsive as well as participatory.
