Our People

The key decisions pertaining to governance, including the overall management of the institute, and medium to long-term investments, etc., are determined by the Governing Council. This acts as the directorial body that takes all academic and administrative decisions pertaining to the ‘governance’ and ‘management’ of the institute and links with the other regulatory and facilitative agencies.
At the apex of governance structure is the Governing Council which is chaired by the Archbishop of Colombo. The Vice Chancellor is the administrative and academic head of the institution.
