Notice of a Discussion on Tuesday, 14 June 2011

The Vice-Chancellor invites those qualified under the regulations for Discussions (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 107) to attend a Discussion in the Council Room, on Tuesday, 14 June 2011, at 2 p.m., for the discussion of the Report of the Council, dated 30 May 2011, on the relocation of the University Farm from North West Cambridge to Madingley (Reporter, 2010–11, p. 893).

Nomination of members of the Council in class (e) (External Members): Election of a member of the Nominating Committee

30 May 2011

No nominations have been received for members in class (c) of the Nominating Committee to nominate External Members of the Council for the election announced in Reporter, p. 648. Under the regulations for the election of such members, a further election is to be held until the vacancies are filled (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 116).

The Vice-Chancellor accordingly gives notice of an election of one member in class (c) of the Committee to serve for four years from 1 October 2011. Members in class (c) comprise two members elected by the Regent House from among those who at the time of election are current members of the Council in classes (a), (b), and (c).

In order to be eligible, a candidate for election must be nominated on a paper sent to the Vice-Chancellor at the Old Schools so as to reach him not later than noon on Friday, 10 June. The paper must contain (a) a statement signed by two members of the Regent House, nominating the candidate for election and (b) a statement signed by the candidate certifying that he or she consents to be so nominated. The candidate should also provide a curriculum vitae by the same date (see below).

The Vice-Chancellor would be obliged if nominations could be delivered to the Registrary in the Old Schools during office hours. Envelopes should be clearly marked as Nomination papers. Nomination papers may also be faxed to 01223 332332 or scanned (showing signatures) and sent by email to Nominations will be published as they are received; the complete list of nominations will be published in the Reporter on Wednesday, 15 June.

In accordance with the regulations governing the election, each person nominated for election is required to send to the Registrary, not later than noon on Friday, 10 June, a statement of her or his curriculum vitae for distribution to members of the Regent House with the voting papers. It is suggested that such a statement should be of not more than 500 words in length, and that it might cover the following points:

the candidate’s present position in the University

previous posts held, whether in Cambridge or in other universities or outside the university system, with dates

a note of the candidate’s particular interests within the field of University business and experience that he or she might bring to the Committee.

The election will be conducted by postal ballot, under the Single Transferable Vote regulations. Voting papers will be distributed, together with the statements provided by candidates, on or before Monday, 27 June. The last date for the return of voting papers will be Tuesday, 12 July.

The Vice-Chancellor has appointed the Administrative Secretary as Deputy Presiding Officer.

Report of the Council seeking authority to submit a planning application for University land at North West Cambridge: Erratum

It is regretted that an error appeared in the wording of paragraph 11 of this Report (Reporter, 2010–11, p. 762). The paragraph should read as follows:

Collegiate accommodation

11. The limited capacity of the Colleges to offer places for postgraduate students is becoming a significant constraint to academic developments. This is manifested in restrictions to growth in numbers of graduate students recruited, and this in itself has an impact on the size of the pool of talent available to support the development of the University’s research.
