Board of Governors
As stated in the UNSSC Statute, the Board of Governors is responsible for:
(a) Formulating general policy for the activities of the Staff College;
(b) Considering the work programme and budget, on the basis of proposals submitted by the Director of the Staff College.
(c) Considering ways and means of enhancing the financial resources of the Staff College with a view to ensuring the effectiveness and continuity of its operations;
(d) Evaluating the activities of the Staff College and their impact and reporting thereon to the Chief Executives Board;
(e) Submitting an annual report to the Chief Executives Board.
In 2009, a newly appointed Board of Governors took office, following a process of reforms aimed at guaranteeing a more accountable and predictable governance structure. Board Members are appointed by the Secretary-General for a two-year period, with the possibility of a one-year extension.
The UNSSC Board meets annually.
