Role of the National University of Ireland
NUI, National University of Ireland, is a federal university comprising the largest element of the Irish university system at the present time. The continuing mission for NUI in modern Ireland is to provide a supportive framework for its confederate institutions, to promote the objects of the University, thus contributing to educational, cultural, social and economic advancement.

'National University of Ireland' currently comprises four Constituent Universities, five Recognised Colleges and one College of a Constituent University. Each institution within the NUI federation has its own Governing Authority; the overall Governing Authority of the university is the NUI Senate and headed by the Chancellor
The Universities Act, 1997, which came into effect on 16 June, 1997, redefined the nature and role of the National University of Ireland. It reconstituted the Senate, which is the Governing Body of the University, with a membership of thirty-eight, as follows:

The Chancellor
The Chief Officers of the Constituent Universities
The Registrar of the University
Four members nominated by the Governmen Four persons elected by each of the Constituent Universities
Eight members elected by Convocation
Four co-opted members
Under the Act, the Senate of the National University of Ireland has functions and responsibilities in relation to the following:
determining basic matriculation requirements; reviewing the content and teaching of courses;
appointing external examiners; awarding degrees and other qualifications.

The Act 1997 also reconstituted the three Constituent Colleges of the National University of Ireland, and the Recognised College, St Patrick's College, Maynooth as Constituent Universities.

The Chancellor

The Chancellor is the head and chief officer of the University. The Chancellor holds office during his/her life or until his/her resignation.
The Vice-Chancellor

The Vice-Chancellor is the chief executive officer of the University. In 1914, the Senate decided that the President of each of the Constituent Colleges should be elected to the position of Vice-Chancellor, in rotation.

The Pro-Vice-Chancellors

A Pro-Vice-Chancellor may act as Vice-Chancellor during a vacancy in that office, and may act for the Vice-Chancellor during his/her absence.

The Senate

Under the provisions of the Charter of the National University of Ireland, the Governing Body of the University is styled ‘The Senate’

Powers and Functions of the Senate
Subject to the provisions of the Irish Universities Act 1908, the Charter of the National University of Ireland, the University Statutes, and the Universities Act 1997, the Senate, as Governing Body of the University, shall exercise all the powers and discretions of the University and shall regulate and determine all matters concerning the University. Section 47 of the Universities Act, 1997, (‘Relationship of Constituent Universities to National University of Ireland’) assigns the following specific functions to the Senate:

(i) The Senate of the National University of Ireland shall determine the basic matriculation requirements for the Constituent Universities but each University may prescribe additional requirements generally or in respect of particular faculties of the University.
(ii) Each Constituent University shall inform the Senate of the courses established from time to time by that University and the Senate may establish a committee for the purpose of reviewing the content and teaching of the courses and may appoint external examiners to assist in any review.
(iii) The results of a review conducted by a committee shall be communicated by the Senate to the University concerned.
(iv) The Senate shall appoint such and so many external examiners to a Constituent University, including examiners appointed for the purpose of subsection (2), as that University shall from time to time recommend and the functions of those external examiners shall be determined by the Senate, with the concurrence of the University.
(v) The degrees and other qualifications awarded by a Constituent University shall be degrees and qualifications of the National University of Ireland and shall be so designated.
(vi) Where the President or any other employee of a Constituent College was appointed by the National University of Ireland, the powers and functions of that University in respect of his or her removal from office shall, notwithstanding anything in this Act, remain in force in relation to that person’.
