Biographical history

The Professorial Board was established by amendments to the Australian National University Act in 1960 as an advisory body to Council on any matter relating to education, learning or research. It was chaired by the Vice-Chancellor and all professors of the University were members. As the other two Boards, the Board of the Institute of Advanced Studies and the Board of the School of General Studies (later The Faculties), were identified as being responsible for all academic matters relating to their bodies, the role of the Professorial Board was unclear. Section 15D of the Act provides that the Vice-Chancellor 'may at any time convene a meeting' and 'shall convene such a meeting' if required by the Council, either of the other two Boards, or six members of the Professorial Board. It had its first meeting on 30 September 1969, met rarely and had its last meeting on 12 April 1989.
