Academic Standards Committee


A standing committee of Academic Board

Monash aspires to be:

  • The best university in the Asia Pacific within a decade.
  • A truly global university.
  • Among the strongest research universities in the world.

To achieve its aspirations, strategies are being considered to further develop and lever Monash's advantages and opportunities and to drive continuous improvement throughout the University whilst remaining true to Monash values such as primacy of student needs and commitment to excellence.  Academic Board, as the university's peak academic boady, has a key role to play in this.

To enhance its contribution to Monash's drive for excellence, the Board has redeveloped its standing committee structures to provide an improved focus for response to/advice regarding Monash's progress towards achieving its academic aspirations and a more rigorous assurance of the quality of Monash's academic endeavours (as the Board's Terms of Reference outline), monitoring of Academic performance against indicators.

The Academic Standards Committee established by Academic Board Meeting 7/2012 will provide this focus and expertise.  It will span the University's academic endeavours and is chaired by a very senior academic member of staff - the Provost, as the University's Chief Academic Officer.
