Decree (2): Establishment of Lawrence
Memorial
Travel Scholarship

Explanatory note

The family and friends of the late Dr Martin Lawrence, University Lecturer
in General
Practice and Fellow of Green College, have offered a generous donation of
£27,000
to establish a travel scholarship to foster links, particularly within the field of
primary health
care, between medical students from the United Kingdom and Nordic
countries. The
following decree, made by the General Purposes Committee of Council on the
recommendation of the Medical Sciences Board, accepts this donation and
establishes the
scholarship.

Text of Decree (2)

In Ch. IX, Sect. I (Statutes, 2000, p. 669), insert new § 202 as follows
and renumber
existing §§ 202--12 (pp. 669--73) as §§ 203--13:

`§ 202. Lawrence Memorial Travel Scholarship

1. The University accepts with gratitude donations totalling
£27,000, and any
further sums which may be contributed for the same purpose, to establish a
fund, to be
known as the Martin Lawrence Memorial Travel Scholarship Fund, as a
memorial to Dr
Martin Lawrence, formerly University Lecturer in General Practice and
Fellow of Green
College. The fund shall be used for the fostering of links, particularly within
the field of
primary health care, between medical students from the United Kingdom and
Nordic
countries (to be interpreted as covering Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway,
and Sweden).

2. The net income of the fund shall be used for the provision of a
Martin Lawrence
Memorial Travel Scholarship.

3. The fund shall be administered by a board of management consisting
of:

(1) the Head of the Department of Primary Health Care;

(2) the Head of the Division of Medical Sciences (or his or her
nominee);

(3) the Warden of Green College (or his or her nominee);

(4) a person appointed by Medical Sciences Board in consultation with
the Head of the
Department of Primary Health Care for such period or periods as it shall
determine.

4. The scholarship, of a value to be determined from time to time by the
board of
management, shall be awarded annually to the medical student who, in the
opinion of the
board of management, submits the most meritorious proposal for a period of
study at a
Nordic medical school. Alternatively or in addition, the scholarship may be
awarded, if the
board of management determines that there are candidates of sufficient merit,
to a medical
student from a Nordic medical school for a period of study within the
University of Oxford
Medical School. Preference shall be given to candidates who propose to
undertake work in
the field of primary health care.

5. The board of management may in any year withhold the scholarship
if there is no
candidate of sufficient merit. In such circumstances the surplus funds shall be
carried forward
and may at the discretion of the board be used either to offer a further
scholarship or
scholarships in a subsequent year or otherwise to foster links as specified in
clause 1 above.

6. Council shall have power to alter this decree from time to time,
provided that the
main object of the fund, as defined in clause 1 above, shall always be kept in
view.'

Decree (4): Weldon Memorial Prize

Explanatory note

The accumulated balance of the income of the Weldon Memorial Prize Fund
is adequate to
permit the award of the prize annually, rather than biennially as at present,
and the following
decree, made by the General Purposes Committee of Council on the
recommendation of the
electors, provides accordingly. At the same time opportunity is taken (1) to
divide cl. 1 of
the existing decree into two separate clauses in order to make clear that it is
only the first
of the relevant provisions which constitutes one of the main objects of the
fund as originally
endowed in 1908; (2) to permit the entire income of the fund to be awarded
as prize money;
and (3) to remove the provision for the payment of honoraria to judges, and
to clarify the
remaining provisions for the expenditure of any surplus income of the fund.

Text of Decree (4)

1 In Ch. IX, Sect. I, cl. 1 (Statutes, 2000, p. 744), delete `The
prize shall be awarded ...
endowment.' and substitute:

`2. The prize shall be awarded annually and shall consist of a bronze
medal and a grant of
money.'

2 Ibid., renumber existing cll. 2--9 (pp. 744--5)
as cll. 3--10.

3 Ibid., cl. 6 (as renumbered), delete `clause 4'
and substitute
`clause 5'.

4 Ibid., cl. 7 (as renumbered), delete `who have
collaborated
in their contribution'.

5 Ibid., delete cll. 8--9 (as renumbered) and
substitute:

`8. The grant of money awarded to the winner of the prize shall consist
of the remainder of
the income of the fund in the year concerned after the payment of the cost of
the bronze
medal.

9. If no candidate is considered to be of sufficient merit to receive the
prize in any
year, the income of the fund in that year shall, at the discretion of the
electors, be used in
any one or more of the following ways:

(a) carrying forward for expenditure in subsequent
years;

(b) assigning a grant of money (without the medal) to
some person
who shall undertake to carry out some investigation approved by the electors;

(c) otherwise promoting the investigation of
mathematical or statistical
methods applied to problems in Biology.'

6 Ibid., cl. 10 (as renumbered), delete `clauses
1 and 5' and
substitute `clauses 1 and 6'.

    GUIDELINES FOR LEAVE FOR ACADEMIC
    STAFF


    1. Approval of applications for leave

    All applications for leave from normal academic duties (sabbatical leave, leave to hold
    research awards, special leave etc.) must be accompanied by a recommendation from the
    individual's department or faculty board, as appropriate, and must also be approved by the
    divisional board which now has the authority to grant leave.



    2. Sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF
    lecturing
    obligations

    The University's regulations in respect of sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF
    lecturing duties are set out in Ch. VII, Sect. I of Statutes (2000, pp. 372--4). Application
    forms and advice on individuals' entitlement may be obtained from Mrs Seidler at the
    University Offices, Wellington Square (telephone: (2)70016, e-mail: Ingunn.Seidler@admin).
    Completed application forms (signed by the head of department where appropriate) should
    be
    returned to Mrs Seidler for processing and for faculty board/divisional board approval. In
    the
    case of the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Division, application forms are available
    from
    the office of the head of department, to which they should be returned for initial processing.



    3. Applications for leave to hold some public offices

    Applications for leave to accept an appointment in the public service of national or
    international importance are normally granted by the divisional board, provided that:

    —the purpose of the leave can be shown to be compatible with the academic
    interests
    of the department or faculty;

    —the department or faculty (and the college in the case of joint appointments)
    supports the application and is able to cover the individual's duties including examining and
    graduate supervision;

    —it is clear that the individual intends to return to university service after the
    period
    of leave.

    Applications for leave to hold such offices should be made to the divisional secretary,
    faculty board secretary or other officer as notified locally.



    4. Applications for certain research awards

    Applications to national bodies of prestigious and competitive research awards (e.g. British
    Academy Research Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships, AHRB Research Leave
    awards, EPSRC Senior or Advanced Fellowships) are normally granted by the divisional
    board provided that the department or faculty (and the college in the case of joint
    appointments) supports the application and that appropriate arrangements can be made to
    cover the individual's duties, including examining and graduate supervision, should the
    application be successful. Completed application forms (including any annexes) should be
    forwarded to Mrs Iredale at the University Offices, Wellington Square (telephone: (2)70017,
    e-mail: Eileen.Iredale@admin) well before the closing date for processing and for divisional
    board approval. Applications from CUF lecturers are normally sent to the awarding body by
    the college (but must have divisional board approval beforehand); applications from other
    staff
    are normally forwarded to the awarding body by Mrs Iredale.



    5. Applications for leave for other purposes

    Applications for leave for any purpose other than those outlined above are initially considered
    in terms of sabbatical leave i.e. if an individual applies for leave under this section in a term
    for which he or she would be entitled to take sabbatical leave, any leave granted for that term
    will be granted as sabbatical leave. If the individual does not have sufficient sabbatical
    entitlement to cover the period of leave requested, sabbatical leave may be granted in
    advance
    of entitlement; in other words, sabbatical leave will be granted for a term which the applicant
    would not normally be entitled to take as sabbatical, the leave in question being deemed to
    be taken in a later term (normally not more than six terms later). In this way the leave will
    count against the individual's normal sabbatical entitlement and will not be in addition to it.
    For sabbatical leave to be granted in advance of entitlement, an academic case must be made
    by the department or faculty board to the divisional board.

    Once an individual's entitlement to sabbatical leave (including leave in advance of
    entitlement) has been exhausted, an application has to be considered in whole or in part as
    an
    application for special leave. Such applications must have the support of the department or
    faculty (and the college in the case of joint appointments) and it must be clear that the
    individual's duties, including examining and graduate supervision, can be covered
    satisfactorily. The main criterion, however, for the grant of special leave, is the academic
    benefit to the University (as opposed to the individual) of the leave and it is for the
    department or faculty board to make the case for such benefit to the divisional board. Where
    there is no case, or where the case is not persuasive, special leave will not be granted.

    Applications for special leave cover many kinds of situation. One example would be
    an
    unrepeatable opportunity to pursue academic interests at a time when the individual is
    ineligible for sabbatical leave. In such cases the department or faculty board would have to
    demonstrate the academic advantages to the University of the opportunity, and would have
    to explain why it could not be taken at a later period when the individual
    would
    be entitled to sabbatical leave. Another example would be a need to undertake fieldwork for
    a period exceeding one year, which could not therefore be accommodated within the usual
    sabbatical provisions. In such cases it would be expected that the individual would take as
    much of the leave as possible as sabbatical or sabbatical in advance of entitlement, and once
    again the academic benefit to the University would have to be demonstrated.

    Very occasionally applications are made for leave to enable an individual to accept an
    appointment in another academic institution (other than routine visiting appointments held
    during sabbatical leave). In such instances, in order for the application to be successful, the
    department or faculty board would need to make an extremely convincing case as to the
    desirability of the individual being offered reversionary rights to his or her university post.
    Factors to be taken into account would include all relevant circumstances relating to the
    individual's role within the department or faculty, and the consequences in terms of refilling
    the post were the leave to be refused and the individual to resign. It should be noted that, if
    leave is granted, and the individual subsequently resigns during the period
    of
    leave or at the end of it, the uncertainly about the long-term filling of the post will be
    exacerbated. The longer the appointment at the other institution, the less likely it is that leave
    will be granted. Leave will not be granted, except in the most truly exceptional
    circumstances,
    to enable an individual to decide whether to accept a permanent post
    elsewhere.

    It is recognised that some offers are made to individuals at short notice. Given the fact
    that all members of the academic staff have clear obligations to the University under the
    terms
    of their contracts, no such offer should be accepted without the support of the department or
    faculty and the explicit approval of the divisional board. It is essential, therefore, that any
    prospect of such an offer is discussed, in confidence, with the divisional secretary or faculty
    board secretary at the earliest opportunity so as to avoid delays, and the possibility of refusal,
    if a firm offer is then made at very short notice.

    All applications for special leave should be made to the divisional secretary, faculty
    board
    secretary or other officer as notified locally, who will also be able to advise on the likelihood
    of success of any application. In the case of joint appointments, the college must also be
    involved.



    6. Stipendiary arrangements

    Sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF lecturing duties: leave will be granted with
    stipend (although it may be granted without stipend if taken for the purpose of holding a
    remunerated visiting appointment under 5 above).

    Leave to hold a public office: leave
    will
    be granted without stipend.

    Leave to hold a research award: the arrangements vary
    depending on the regulations governing the award, but it is normal for individuals holding
    such awards to continue to receive their usual university stipend, the awarding body either
    providing funds to make a replacement appointment or reimbursing the University for the
    individual's salary costs.

    Special leave: leave will normally be granted without stipend.



    7. Implications for future entitlement to sabbatical
    leave or
    dispensation from CUF lecturing duties

    Special leave does not count as qualifying service for the purposes of calculating future
    entitlement to sabbatical leave or dispensation from CUF lecturing duties. However it does
    not count against an individual's future entitlement. When special leave has
    been
    granted for the purposes of holding a public office or a research award, sabbatical leave is
    not
    normally granted in the period immediately preceding or following the period of special
    leave,
    although some flexibility may be exercised at the divisional board's discretion in respect of
    periods of special leave not exceeding one year, especially in connection with the holding of
    research awards.

    SPEAKING BY JUNIOR MEMBERS IN
    CONGREGATION

    Mr Vice-Chancellor has, with the agreement of Council, approved the following
    arrangements
    for junior members to speak in Congregation under the terms of Ch. I, Sect x
    (Statutes, 2000,
    p. 213), which reads as follows:

    `Any junior member as defined in Tit. XV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 2, may speak at a
    meeting
    of Congregation, if called upon to do so by the Chairman at the Chairman's discretion,
    provided that the Chairman may at any time terminate a debate on the floor of the House and
    proceed to the final speeches and the taking of a vote.'

    The Chairman of Congregation will normally expect to call upon nominated representatives
    of the Oxford University Student Union if they wish to speak in debate, and will normally
    expect to call upon junior members to speak only from among those who have given advance
    notice of their wish to be called. Should the Chairman consider that the number of junior
    members who have given such notice is excessive, he or she will have to be selective in
    calling upon them. The Chairman will try to ensure a balanced debate in relation to the
    apparent spread and strength of views held by junior members. If informed selection is to
    be
    possible it is desirable that when giving notice of the wish to be called a junior member
    should indicate (a) whether he or she intends to support or oppose the motion
    before the House, (b) whether he or she would speak on behalf of any club,
    committee, group, or association, (c) whether he or she is supported by other
    junior members (up to twelve of whom might sign the notice).

    If the number giving notice is small they will all be admitted to the floor of the
    House
    although this does not ensure their being called. In other cases some selection may be
    necessary at the stages of both admission and calling of speakers. If there is to be time to tell
    applicants whether they will be admitted notice will have to be received in good time. Junior
    members should therefore send in such notice, in writing, to the Registrar to be received at
    the University Offices not later than 10 a.m. on the Monday preceding the debate in
    question.
    The name of any representative nominated by OUSU should also be communicated to the
    Registrar, in writing, through the President by that time. A notice will then be posted in the
    University Offices and on the gate of the Clarendon Building not later than 10 a.m. on the
    morning of the debate, indicating whether all applicants will be admitted to the floor of the
    House or, if selection has had to take place, the names of those selected for admission to the
    floor.

    Junior members not admitted to the floor of the House will normally be permitted to
    listen to the debate from the gallery. Junior members on the floor of the House will be asked
    to remain in their places while a vote is being taken.

    Under Tit. XV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 2, junior members are defined as `those
    persons
    who, having been admitted to matriculation, are residing to fulfil the requirements of any
    statute, decree, or regulation of the University or reading for any degree, diploma, or
    certificate of the University and who have not proceeded to membership of Convocation'.
    (Membership of Convocation is obtained by taking a degree of the University.)

    ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

    Ewert House, Ewert Place, Summertown, Oxford OX2 7BZ

    Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned company of the University, was established in 1988. The
    company has been formed to exploit know-how arising out of research funded by the UK
    Government through the Research Councils and funded by other bodies where the rights are
    not tied. The function of the company is to ensure that the results of research bring rewards
    to Oxford, and to the inventors, who are given a financial incentive for exploitation.

    Isis seeks licensees willing to pay lump sums and/or royalties for the use of
    know-how
    arising out of research. Isis also exploits the intellectual property of the University by setting
    up individual companies using venture capital or development capital funds.

    Isis'
    services
    are also available to individuals who wish to exploit the results of research supported by
    non-Research Council sources, when there are no prior conditions on the handling of the
    intellectual property rights. Isis Innovation has at its disposal a small pre- seedcorn fund for
    paying the costs of protecting intellectual property rights and for taking work to a stage
    where
    its potential can be assessed.

    Isis finds industrial partners to ensure that new ideas can be developed for market
    requirements. The company has established the Oxford Innovation Society for major
    industrial
    companies, so that they can have a window on Oxford technology and an opportunity to
    license and invest where appropriate.

    A brochure explaining Isis' activities is available. If you wish to receive a copy,
    please
    contact Isis (details below).

    Members of the University should contact the Managing Director if they wish to take
    advantage of the services that Isis provides. (Telephone: (2)80830, fax: (2)80831, e-mail:

    KENNETH KIRKWOOD MEMORIAL FUND

    A new fund has been established to commemorate the contribution
    of Professor Kenneth Kirkwood to African education and St
    Antony's College. Professor Kirkwood was Rhodes Professor of Race
    Relations at the University from 1955 to 1986 and co-ordinator
    of African Studies at St Antony's College. The fund is managed
    by the African Educational Trust.

    Applications are invited from postgraduate students in the
    Humanities, Social Sciences, and Geography registered at UK
    universities from Southern Africa (including South Africa,
    Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Zambia,
    Mozambique, and Malawi). Preference will be given to students
    registered at St Antony's College. The fund is initially to be
    devoted to cases of hardship or unexpected financial difficulties
    for students who are completing postgraduate degrees.

    St Antony's students should apply to Polly Friedhoff, Development
    Office, St Antony's College. Others should apply to the Director,
    Africa Educational Trust, 38 King Street, London WC2E 8JS.
    Applications should include a short statement about research and
    progress, a reference from a supervisor, and an explanation of
    the need for funding. Initial grants are likely to be in the
    region of £500. The first closing date is 30 May 2001 for
    awards to be held in the academic year 2001–2. Enquiries
    about later applications should be made to the Africa Educational
    Trust.

    Should sufficient money be raised, this fund will be devoted to
    larger scholarships and any suggestions concerning fund-raising
    would be welcomed.
