What is a Faculty?
Teaching and research in Cambridge is organised mainly by a number of Faculties. The Faculties cover the whole of the academic programme in the University, each being responsible for a broad subject area. Each Faculty is governed by a Faculty Board which is responsible for the provision of adequate teaching and facilities for research. The composition of each Board consists of five classes of membership: Professors and Heads of Departments within the Faculty; members elected by the senior members (i.e. teaching staff) in the Faculty; junior members elected by the students of the Faculty; representatives of cognate studies; and co-opted members. The Chairman and Secretary are elected by each Board from amongst their members. Faculty Boards are responsible to the General Board.
