Graces submitted to the Regent House on 3 March 2004

The Council submit the following Graces to the Regent House. These Graces, unless they are withdrawn or a ballot is requested in accordance with the regulations for Graces of the Regent House (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 115), will be deemed to have been approved at 4 p.m. on Friday, 12 March 2004.

1. That Deloitte & Touche LLP be reappointed, in accordance with Statute F, II, 5, to be the qualified accountants for the audit of the University's financial statements for the financial year 2003-04.1

2. That, on the recommendation of the Faculty Board of Social and Political Sciences and the General Board, the regulations for Affiliated Students be amended as follows:2

By amending the paragraph relating to Social and Political Sciences so as to read:

If the Faculty Board of Social and Political Sciences allow it in a particular case, leave to take Part IIA of the Social and Political Sciences Tripos in the second term after the student's first term of actual residence.

3. That, on the recommendation of the General Board, the Sir Patrick Sheehy Professorship of International Relations be assigned to the Centre of International Studies with effect from 1 October 2004.3

4. That, on the recommendation of the General Board, the Professorship established from 1 October 2003 by Grace 5 of 18 February 2004 for Professor J. G. Haslam be assigned to the Centre of International Studies.4

5. That, on the recommendation of the Faculty Board of Music, the regulations for the John Stewart of Rannoch Sacred Music Fund and Scholarships be amended as follows:5

Regulation 4.

By replacing in line 2 the words 'nine complete terms' by the words 'twelve complete terms'.

1 The Audit Committee have recommended the reappointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as External Auditors to the University for the current financial year.

2 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 173. At present Affiliated Students reading for the Social and Political Sciences Tripos have the right to take Part IIA at the end of their first year of actual residence, whatever their academic background. This is not always in a student's best interest; it is proposed that in future candidates should be required to obtain the approval of the Faculty Board of Social and Political Sciences to commence their intended course of study at this level.

3 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 683. When the Sir Patrick Sheehy Professorship of International Relations was established it could not be assigned to the Centre of International Studies, although it was closely associated with the Centre, as all Professorships were assigned to either a Faculty or Department under Statute D, XIV, 7. The Professorship is currently assigned to the Faculty of History. The amendment to Statute D, XIV, 7 approved by Her Majesty the Queen in Council on 11 February 2004 (see the Registrary's Notice, Reporter, p. 514) now permits assignment of a Professorship to any University institution under the supervision of the General Board. The General Board therefore propose that the Professorship should be permanently reassigned to the Centre of International Studies following the retirement of the current holder on 30 September 2004.

4 See the General Board's Report on senior academic promotions, Reporter, p. 395, in which the assignment of this Professorship was deferred. Assignment of the Professorship to the Centre is now possible, following the amendment to Statute D, XIV, 7 referred to above.

5 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 869. The current regulations for the John Stewart of Rannoch Sacred Music Fund and Scholarships disadvantage persons who have completed an undergraduate course in the University and then continue to take a postgraduate course. The Faculty Board of Music have proposed a change to the regulations so that such persons may be eligible to apply for a Scholarship in the first year of their postgraduate course.
