Governing bodies, equality and diversity: A handbook for board members in Scotland’s colleges

Handbook for Scottish college board members.

Board members have an integral part to play in supporting equality and diversity in your college as part of pursuing the institutional mission and strategy, in providing legal assurance, and in helping to build a diverse and representative governing body.

This handbook has been produced following discussions with secretaries of college boards in which requests were made for guidance specific to college board members in Scotland, particularly in light of the shift in equality law and the policy context in Scotland.

It draws on ECU’s 2015 Governing bodies, equality and diversity: research report and 2016 handbooks for board members in higher education institutions (HEIs) and updates it with specific information and guidance for board members of colleges in Scotland.
