UNIVERSITIES in Papua New Guinea are established by an act of parliament and other statutes, policies and guidelines that govern their administration.
The governing council and the vice chancellor and pro vice chancellors, who refer to themselves as the top management team, and other senior management have a duty to govern universities within the legislation.
They are required to set high standards in the academic and physical development of a university. They are custodians and fair implementers of the laws that govern the university.
So the council and management of universities occupy a privileged position. The ultimate demand of taxpayers is that university leaders offer transparency and accountability in all that they do.
