Amending Statutes for Wolfson College: Notice

18 January 2010

The Vice-Chancellor begs leave to refer to her Notice of 23 November 2009 (Reporter, p. 256), concerning proposed amending Statutes for Wolfson College. She hereby gives notice that in the opinion of the Council the proposed Statutes make no alteration of any Statute which affects the University, and do not require the consent of the University; that the interests of the University are not prejudiced by them, and that the Council has resolved to take no action upon them, provided that the Council will wish to reconsider the proposed Statutes if they have not been submitted to the Privy Council by 18 January 2011.

Statutes and Ordinances of the University: Scoping Study for a proposed review: Notice

Invitation to comment

The University Council has asked an advisory group to conduct a scoping study about a possible review of the University Statutes and Ordinances. This follows recommendations of the Board of Scrutiny and other suggestions. The group consists of Professor David Yates, Chairman, Professor Sir John Baker, Professor Catherine Barnard, Professor Dame Sandra Dawson, and Professor Paul Luzio, with the Administrative Secretary as Secretary.

The group would be interested to know whether colleagues in the University wish to make suggestions as to matters in the Statutes and/or Ordinances which require correction, clarification, simplification, or other review, and also whether there are policies or guidance which are binding in detail or in principle on the University which are not contained either in the Statutes or Ordinances, but should be. Any other observations would be of interest.

The advisory group has been asked to report to the Council by Easter 2010 and it would therefore be particularly helpful to receive comments by 15 February 2010.

Suggestions are also welcome from individuals. These can be sent to the Administrative Secretary, by the same date (15 February 2010) and also by email if desired (
