Graces submitted to the Regent House on 3 July 2013: Correction

The Vice-Chancellor gives notice of a correction under Regulation 15 of the regulations for Graces and Congregations of the Regent House (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 111). By Grace 2 of 3 July 2013, Special Ordinances were approved by the Regent House and came into force on 11 February 2014 following approval of the new Statutes. It has since been noted that the Visiting Professorships of Architecture, the Sir Arthur Marshall Visiting Professorship of Sustainable Urban Design, and the Humanitas Visiting Professorships were removed in error from the list of Professorships not subject to the retiring age, previously included in Statute D, XIV, 14 , and transferred to Special Ordinance C (vii) A 14 (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 78). This correction restores the three Visiting Professorships to that list with effect from 11 February 2014.
