What is a Trustee Board?

The Trustee Board is responsible for directing Oxford SU's work in the long term. The board looks at the strategic overview, including financial and legal security.

Oxford SU is a charitable organisation and therefore, in accordance with the Charities Commission, must have a group of trustees who are legally responsible for its financial and legal health and strategic direction.
