The CTISS is managed by the Director, currently Professor Jemina Napier.

A new constitution is being developed for the Centre by the Director. The Centre and the Director will be supported by a newly appointed advisory group of leading researchers, government and organisational representatives and practitioners in relevant fields.

The advisory board are currently being appointed and will comprise up to six members who meet formally twice per annum to review the operation of the CTISS and advise the Director and the University. One meeting will take place at the Edinburgh campus in the context of the CTISS annual review; the other will be a mid-year meeting and may be held as video conference. Members of the Advisory Board, individually and collectively, will also provide specific advice to the Director and Centre members between formal meetings.
