Governance

The College is owned by the Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane and the four regional Dioceses: Rockhampton, Toowoomba, Townsville and Cairns.

The College Constitution empowers the Archbishop and the Bishops to appoint the Chair of the College Council and its Members who set the governance and direction of the College. One of these Members is always a member of the St Leo’s College Resident student body.

The Council meets five times per calendar year and its meetings are structured around three Advisory Committees – Planning, Legal & Risk and Finance.

The Head of College reports to the Council with respect to the College’s financial position and ensures its engagement with the broader community. The Head of College is responsible for the daily functioning of the College, and through the delegations of the Council and implementation of the College’s Strategic Plan provides for staffing arrangements and delivery of Council policy. The Head of College is also responsible for the College’s financial position and its engagement with the broader community.
