Governance

The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) is governed by its member institutions through an elected Council. As the ACU is a UK-registered charity, Council members also act as its Trustees.

The ACU Council comprises up to 23 members: 20 elected Council members, up to two co-opted Council members and, if the Honorary Treasurer is co-opted rather than elected, the Honorary Treasurer.
