Our Board of Trustees
Bader College (formerly the Bader International Study Centre) was established in 1993 by Queen’s University (Canada) as a company limited by guarantee and registered as a charity with the UK Charity Commission. As a registered Charity, it has its own Board of Trustees, which is responsible for assuring that Bader College is managed well, is financially sound, and that it is fulfilling its charitable obligations.
There are currently four trustees – two non-university trustees resident in the United Kingdom, one non-university trustee residing in Canada, and one trustee (the Provost of Queen’s) representing Queen’s University (Canada) and serving as Chair.
Our trustees meet at least three times a year to consider budgets, projects, activities, and the general functioning of Bader College. In a recent development, the Board also hears a yearly “State of the Castle” - report from the Student Government, evaluating the functioning and quality assurance of Bader College.
The principal objective of the charity is to contribute to and enhance international education and research through its role as an academic meeting-place for students, scholars and professionals from around the world – a place where people of different nationalities may learn and work together for both collective and public benefit.
