GUIDELINES FOR LEAVE FOR ACADEMIC STAFF

The General Board's regulations in respect of sabbatical leave and dispensation
from CUF lecturing obligations are set out in Ch. VII, Sect. I of the Statutes
(1997, pp. 384--6). Provisions for other leave are set out in the same section
(pp. 382--3). The following guidelines describe the General Board's policy and
practice in respect of applications for leave which do not fall within the
category of straightforward sabbatical leave or dispensation, i.e. special
leave
.


1. Applications for leave to hold some public offices or certain research
awards

(a) Applications for leave to accept an appointment in the public
service of national importance are normally granted by the General Board,
provided that the purpose of the leave can be shown to be compatible with
the academic interests of the faculty, the faculty board lends its support to
the application, and it is clear that the individual intends to return to
university service after the period of leave. Leave for this purpose for heads
of departments or professors can, however, be problematic, for obvious
reasons.

(b) Applications to national bodies for prestigious and
competitive research awards (such as British Academy Research Readerships
and Senior Research Fellowships, EPSRC Senior or Advanced Fellowships and
Nuffield Foundation Social Science Research Fellowships) should be made to the
General Board through the faculty board. It is usual for such national bodies
to specify that applications should be made through the employing institution,
and in Oxford's case this involves routing the application via the faculty
board to the General Board. The University will normally support such
applications for prestigious awards, but it is necessary for the faculty board
and the General Board to consider carefully what replacement teaching
arrangements will be required if an application is successful.

Leave granted under (a) and (b) does not count against
sabbatical entitlement: indeed the rules of some research awards specifically
forbid this. However, as in other cases of special leave, the period of leave
does not count as qualifying service for the purpose of calculating
future entitlement to sabbatical leave, and sabbatical leave is not
normally granted in the period immediately preceding or following
periods of such leave, although some flexibility may be exercised in respect
of periods of special leave not exceeding one year, especially in connection
with the holding of research awards.


2. Applications for leave for other purposes

All other applications for leave are initially considered in terms of application
for sabbatical leave, until entitlement to sabbatical leave is exhausted. In other
words, if an individual applies for leave under this section for any term which
he or she would be entitled to take as sabbatical leave, any leave granted for
that term will be granted as sabbatical leave. Such leave may also be granted
as sabbatical leave 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 leave, and leave for the term in question will then be
deemed to be taken in a later term (normally not more than six terms later).
In this way the leave will count against an individual's sabbatical entitlement:
taking the individual's service as a whole, the leave will not be in addition to
the standard sabbatical entitlement. For sabbatical leave to be granted in
advance of entitlement, an academic case must be made by the faculty board
to the Appointments Committee of the General Board.

When sabbatical leave entitlement had been exhausted, an application has to
be considered in whole or in part as one for special leave. In
such cases, faculty boards are required, when making recommendations to the
Appointments Committee of the General Board, to specify whether, and if so
how, the grant of such leave would be in the academic interests of the
faculty. Where there is no statement of academic interest, or this statement is
not persuasive, special leave will not be granted.

Applications for special leave cover many kinds of situation. One would be an
unrepeatable opportunity to pursue academic interests where the applicant is
ineligible for sabbatical leave. In such a case it would be necessary for the
faculty board to demonstrate the academic advantage (to the University rather
than to the individual) of the individual being able to accept the opportunity,
and for an explanation to be given of why such an opportunity could not be
taken up at a later period when the applicant would be entitled
to sabbatical leave. Another situation where special leave might be applied for
would be where there was a need for fieldwork for a period exceeding one
year, which could therefore not be accommodated within the sabbatical
provisions. In such a case it would be expected, as usual, that as much of the
leave as possible would be taken as sabbatical or sabbatical in advance of
entitlement, and the faculty board would again need to demonstrate the
academic advantage to the University of the application's being granted.

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

In each of the situations outlined above, applications are considered on their
academic merits, but it is emphasised that the nature of special leave is that
it is granted exceptionally rather than automatically. Advice on the likelihood
of success of any application can be obtained from the Secretary of Faculties
or the secretary of the Appointments Committee of the General Board.

The General Board takes the view that academic staff are specifically
appointed to undertake both teaching and research, and (although the Board
would support arrangements whereby teaching in excess of a contracted or
reasonable stint was relieved) an extremely good case needs to be made in
support of an application for special leave which would have the result of the
individual's teaching being conducted mainly or wholly by someone else. This
is especially true given that the sabbatical leave scheme has been preserved
intact throughout retrenchment, so providing the opportunity for individuals
to concentrate on research in one term out of every seven. Willingness to
forgo university stipend or the ease with which funding for a replacement
appointment may be attracted will not be sufficient to guarantee in any way
the success of an application for special leave.

It is emphasised that any application for leave, including any
application for funding which might result in the need for leave from
university duties to be granted, must be made to the General Board through
the faculty board (and head of department, in departmentally organised
faculties). In every case the academic advantage to the institution will be the
general criterion by which applications will be considered: in every case the
General Board requires details of any necessary substitute arrangements,
including those relating to examining and graduate supervision.

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, however, no such offer
should be accepted without the explicit approval of the General Board under
the procedures set out above: for this reason any prospect of such an offer,
however indefinite, must be discussed (in strict confidence) with
Dr Whiteley, secretary to the Appointments Committee of the General Board, at
the very earliest opportunity. Delay in bringing to the attention of the
University the possibility that an offer may be made will mean that if
applications and substitute arrangements then have to be considered at short
notice, this might compromise the chance of leave being granted.


3. Stipendiary arrangements

Leave granted under the above arrangements is normally without university
stipend, but the precise implications for payment can vary. In some cases the
leave is clearly unpaid, such as when appointments in the public service are
held. In other cases, such as the holding of prestigious research awards, the
University is expected to continue paying the individual, while the
grant-giving body provides support for the University to employ a
replacement: or the grant-giving body supplies a sum of money which is
equivalent to that paid by the University under normal circumstances to the
individual. Although this is technically special leave without university
stipend, the University will continue to pay the stipend to the individual
through the payroll mechanism, being reimbursed by the award-giving body.
Special leave under any other arrangement will mean the University will cease
to make payments of stipend and national insurance and superannuation
contributions. In general, except where the rules of grant-giving bodies in
respect of major competitive awards specify otherwise, it is expected that the
normal result of the granting of an application for special leave will be the
release to the University of the full salary and on-costs of the substantive
university appointment, which may be available, with the agreement of the
General Board, to the faculty board for the making of any necessary
replacement appointment. This is particularly important given the University's
practice of advertising temporary university lecturerships, for example,
without cash-limited salary scales.

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, 1997, p. 208), which reads as follows:

`Any junior member as defined in Tit. XIV, 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. XIV, 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 normally obtained by taking the MA degree.)

CENTRE FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDIES


International Organisations and the Security Issues
of the Post-Cold War Era

The Centre for International Studies invites applications from members of
Oxford University for research grants in the area named above.

Applications are invited for grants of up to £5,000 for research
projects in the two areas of transitions from war to peace, and regionalism
and regional organisation. Selections will be made three times a year.

This competition is an integral part of the Centre's research programme
on International Organisations and the Security Issues of the Post-Cold War
Era. It has four components: the role of international organisations in
transitions from war to peace; international organisations and new threats to
international peace and security; regionalism, regional organisations and
security; and the attitudes and policies of states and groups of states towards
international organisations. Details of the programme and its management may
be found on the Centre for International Studies Web site,
http://www.ssfc.ox.ac.uk/cis.

The competition is open to university faculty members and to research
students who have completed doctoral theses. Grant funds must be used for
expenses related to the research project. They may not be used for living
expenses while in Oxford. Receipts must be submitted in order for
reimbursement to be received.

Applications should be in the form of a letter giving a brief description
of the proposed research and its end product, and a budget. They should
indicate how the project is related to the objectives of the transitions from
war to peace and regionalism components of the programme. Research students
should also provide a letter of support from their supervisor.

This competition will be managed by the Managers of the Cyril Foster and
Related Funds, to whom applications should be directed. Applications should
be submitted to Marga Lyall, Secretary, Centre for International Studies, Social
Studies Faculty Centre, George Street, Oxford, by the end of seventh week
this Michaelmas Term only, and thereafter by the end of fifth week of each
term for consideration at the termly Committee meeting of the Managers of the
Cyril Foster and Related Funds.
