About Office of the Chancellor

The Chancellor goes in line with Corde Ecclesiae, which states:

For her part, Holy Mother Church, in order to fulfill the mandate she received from her divine founder to announce the mystery of salvation to all people and to renew all things in Christ … has therefore a part to play in the development and extension of education. Therefore, he is the supreme head of this institution and as such he is the Chair of the Board of Trustees and University Council.

As Bishop, Proprietor and Chair of the Board of Trustee and University Council, he remains the supreme Head of the University. As Chancellor, he is responsible for providing leadership to the Board of Trustee and University Council in the execution and review of its governance responsibilities.

By Virtue of the fact that he is proprietor and Bishop, he remains the final decision owner of the University. The Chancellor shall in relation to the University, take precedence before all other members of the University and when he is present shall preside at all meetings of convocation held for conferring degrees and at meetings of congregation.
