Meet the people at White Rose DTC

The Steering Group is part of the formal governance of the DTC.

The Steering Group (SG) agrees and oversees the strategic priorities of the DTC (in the context of the institutions’ and ESRC’s strategic plans) and oversee the implementation of ESRC’s guidance on the distribution of studentships, the establishment of new programmes etc in line with its original objectives.

In terms of the overall strategic direction, the SG:

  • focuses on encouraging and embedding collaboration
  • initiates the development of interdisciplinary programmes
  • maximises the quality of provision
  • encourage the spread of good practice.

The SG is responsible for ensuring the output targets of the DTC are met.  The SG ensures partner views are sought and considered in reaching decisions and reviews and approves all necessary processes for the efficient and effective conduct of the DTC.
