Office of Vice-Chancellor: Consultation

The Advisory Committee appointed by the Council, under the Chairmanship of Professor F. P. Kelly, CHR, has appointed Perrett Laver to assist the University in its appointment of a Vice-Chancellor to take up office from 1 October 2010. The membership of the Advisory Committee was reported on 21 January 2009 (Reporter, p. 402). The Advisory Committee will shortly embark on a series of consultations in the University to assist it in its deliberations before it finalizes a brief for the appointment and formally begins the search for candidates.

As part of its consultations, the Advisory Committee wishes to invite any junior or senior member of the University and any member of staff to an open meeting at 2 p.m. on Friday, 6 March 2009, in the Babbage Lecture Theatre on the New Museums Site, to provide their views or comments on the appointment. The meeting will be chaired by Professor Kelly and is expected to last for one hour.

In addition, the Advisory Committee has created an email address (VCSearch@admin.cam.ac.uk) to which any junior or senior member of the University, its staff or interested person may forward their comments, views or suggestions in confidence during the initial consultation period, which will end on 16 March 2009. It is planned that the Vice-Chancellorship will be advertised at the end of March.
