Hello Welcome to IHM Whatsapp Chat
IHM’s Board of Directors is responsible for the overall conduct, management, administration, and control as regards the affairs of the organisation. The basic responsibility of the Board is to represent the interests of IHM, while observing the statutes of organisation as an independent institute of higher education.
The Board of Directors carries out its responsibilities in a stewardship role, delegating the day-to-day management of IHM to the Senior Executive and governance and organisational committees.
Policies and procedures have been developed and implemented to ensure ethical conduct and compliance. These policies have been approved by the Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors is assisted by Organisational Committees which help the Board meet its corporate and regulatory obligations. Having established these committees, the Board understands that these structures will play a significant part in its deliberations and how it operates at a strategic level. As such, the committee structures will be reviewed on a regular basis, with annual performance reports sent to the Board.
In addition to the committees, the Board of Directors may establish specific sub-committees or working parties to address projects or issues.
All operations of the Board of Directors and the related committees are to be undertaken within a culture of respect, integrity, accountability, good faith, due diligence, sound governance, risk management and sustainability – as befits an independent institute of higher education.
The purpose of the Academic Board is to ensure that academic activity is promoted and conducted, in a manner that is conducive to IHM’s success as an independent Institute of Higher Education. This includes all relevant legislative and ethical requirements. The Academic Board will encourage the development and maintenance of high standards of learning, teaching and scholarship. The Academic Board oversees academic governance and provides advice to the Board of Directors on all relevant matters. Additionally, the Academic Board is responsible for advising on all IHM academic matters: the overview of academic courses of study of the organisation, assessment standards, practices, accreditation and accountability requirements. The advice may relate to, but is not to be limited to, the following:
To assist with these matters, the Academic Board has established a number of committees, primarily the Learning and Teaching Committee, the Course Advisory and Development Committee, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education and Support Committee, and the Board of Examiners.
The committees set up by IHM are delegated responsibility for specific operational and academic areas. All committees responsible for academic matters report either directly or indirectly to the Academic Board.
Committees responsible for operational matters report to the Board of Directors.
Each committee has its own Terms of Reference, which establish provisions for subcommittees and for the oversight of projects carried out by staff or groups of staff (known as working groups).
