Graces submitted to the Regent House on 23 January 2020*

The Council submits 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 These Graces, unless they are withdrawn or a ballot is requested in accordance with the regulations for Graces of the Regent House (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 105) will be deemed to have been approved at 4 p.m. on Friday, 31 January 2020.

1. That in Regulation 1 of the regulations for the Unified Administrative Service (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 708) the list of Divisions be amended to read as follows:1

Academic Division
Estates Division
Finance Division
Governance and Compliance Division
Health, Safety, and Regulated Facilities Division
Human Resources Division
Legal Services Division

2. That the Winton Professorship of the Public Understanding of Risk (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 741) be retitled the Harding Professorship of Statistics in Public Life and the reference to the Professorship in Regulation 2 for the Winton Fund for the Public Understanding of Risk be updated (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 1039).2


  • 1These changes rename Estate Management as the Estates Division and divide out and rename the Registrary’s Office, which currently comprises the Registrary’s Office and the Legal Services Office, as the Governance and Compliance Division and the Legal Services Division. Council has agreed to propose the changes to provide greater clarity around the functions of these three administrative bodies. The name of Estate Management does not reflect the wide range of activities undertaken by the Division. The separation of the current parts of the Registrary’s Office will result in two new Divisions with coherent functions and titles which reflect their responsibilities. The changes are cost-neutral, with minimal updates required to reflect the new names, and have the support of the staff concerned.

  • 2The Council, on the recommendation of the General Board and with the support of the Head of the School of the Physical Sciences, the Head of the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics and the donor, is proposing this change during a vacancy to widen the field of research covered by the Professorship, and to reflect the name of the donor.


  • *Following a change in the publication schedule, the submission date for the Graces, which should match the issue publication date, was incorrectly stated (as 22 January) and has since been amended. The approval date for the Graces, which is governed by Regulation 5 of the regulations for Graces and Congregations of the Regent House, is not affected.
