A Syndicate, chaired by the Vice-Chancellor with other members appointed by the Council of the University, remains the governing body for Cambridge Assessment but has delegated its powers to the University’s Press and Assessment Board (PAB) which began operating formally in June 2017. The PAB is responsible for setting overarching strategic direction and agreeing major strategic and investment decisions for both Cambridge Assessment and Cambridge University Press and includes representatives from the Syndicates of both organisations.
