The University of Wolverhampton

Board of Governors

The University of Wolverhampton is a Higher Education Corporation, as established under the Education Reform Act 1988. The University of Wolverhampton is an exempt charity under The Charities Act 1993 (consolidated by The Charities Act 2011). The University, since its earliest days in the mid-nineteenth century, has had the purpose of providing the benefits of further and higher education to as many people in the community having the motivation and academic ability to do well. 

The University enjoys the benefits of charitable status but the role of regulator is assumed by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). The University's Board of Governors act as trustees of the University. You can read more about the University as a charity here
