Biographical history

The Australian National University Act 1946 establishes the Council as the governing authority of the University. The Interim Council dates from 1 August 1946 to 30 June 1951. From 1 July 1951 the term Council was used. Its membership was provided for by section 11 of the Act including members elected by the Senate, the House of Representatives, the Governor-General, Convocation, students and staff and co-opted members. It is chaired by the Chancellor and the Vice-Chancellor is also a member. Amendments to the Act in 1960 increased its members to include the Pro-Chancellor, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, the Principal of the School of General Studies, and the Deputy Chairman of the Board of the Institute of Advanced Studies.
