The Kube - Our Governance Hub


Welcome to the Kube - Our Governance Hub at University of Galway! 

The Kube: Derived from the Greek verb ‘kubernaein’, governance is a term used to describe the governing done by a state or organisation. 

Kubernaein means ‘to steer’, in this context relating to the directions and decisions taken by those involved in the process.


Our governance framework sets out who we are, what we do and how we do it.
