Governance Structure

Governance

Nün Academy is a joint venture agreement between Saudi investors and Kunskapsskolan, a Swedish school operating company. The Board of Governors appoints an Executive Committee that follows through with its decisions and liaises with the Academy Director on all Board-related issues.

Board Authority

All executive authority of Nün is vested in the Board, and the Board delegates such authority, as it deems necessary. Individual Board members have no power to act except in meetings of the assembled Board or by specific designation by the Board.

Board and Executive Committee Roles

  • Guarding Nün’s guiding statements – vision, mission, values and vision for students.
  • Maintaining a child focus in all decision-making.
  • Being responsible to the institution as a whole, not having a single agenda/constituency.
  • Avoiding raising individual matters/concerns unless broad policy implications are involved.
  • Acting collectively: the authority to speak/represent/act for the Board comes from the Board.
  • Reviewing and maintaining appropriate bylaws that conform to the CIS Code of Ethics.
  • Demonstrating compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
  • Having primary responsibility for the preservation of capital assets and endowments.
  • Placing the day-to-day operational responsibility and accountability in the hands of the Academy Director and the Head of School.
  • Being accountable for the financial stability and financial future of Nün Academy, setting the tuition fees, reviewing and approving the budget.
