Our governance

Our governance


Since 1698 we have been governed by the 'Syndics' (originally known as the Curators), 14 or more senior members of the University of Cambridge and others who, along with various co-optees, bring a range of subject and business expertise to the governance of Cambridge University Press & Assessment. Committees of the Syndicate meet regularly to look at our output, ensuring that the content we publish and the exams we produce meet rigorous standards, and to oversee the strategic, regulatory and financial operations of Cambridge University Press & Assessment.

The Syndicate has a Press & Assessment Board, Audit & Risk Committee, Remuneration Committee, Nominations Committee, Academic Advisory Board, Online Education Committee, Regulatory Compliance Committee, Standards Committee, Technology Committee, Academic Publishing Committee, and Teaching & Learning Committee. The Publishing Committees provide quality assurance and formal approval for the titles published, meeting regularly to review editorial and publishing strategy matters. Other Committees oversee the quality of our exams output. The Press & Assessment Board is concerned with our overall governance and meets six times a year.


Responsibility for our day-to-day management is delegated by the Syndicate to our Chief Executive and our Executive Board, which includes our Chief Financial Officer.
