The Council comprises eight members. The subcommittees of the Council are Risk and Audit; Campus Development; Chief Executive Performance Appraisal; and the Combined Academic Board. There are two Iwi advisory groups to Council. They are Atiawanuitonu (Te Atiawa) and Te Komiti Poutokomanawa (Ngati Toa). In December 2014 the Council agreed that a forum for Te Atiawa advice and dialogue was required. Atiawanuitonu was established encompassing Te Atiawa and the other tribes of Taranaki. A hui was followed by a Powhiri for Council and members of the management team. Atiawanuitonu met three times in 2015. The forum provided a governance context for the memoranda which exist between WelTec and Te Runanganui o Te Atiawa ki te Upoko o te Ika a Maui Inc (Te Atiawa) and Te Marae o Waiwhetu. During 2015 a Steering Committee chaired by Chris Gosling, Chief Executive of WelTec and Whitireia was established to lead progress on the new creative technologies and applied arts campus.
