CONGREGATION 10 October 2 p.m.


1 Promulgation of Statutes

Explanatory note to Statute (1)

The following statute introduces a new provision permitting the
cancellation of a meeting of Congregation, under the provisions of
Tit. II, Sect. III, cl. 11 (Statutes, 1993, p. 8), when
the business includes a special resolution suspending normal
procedures, provided that at least nineteen days' notice of the
resolution has been published in the Gazette and that no notice of
opposition has been received by the eighth day before the meeting.
This brings the arrangements for such resolutions into line with
those for most of the other types of business before Congregation,
and it will eliminate the present requirement to hold a formal
meeting even if the resolution is unopposed. It will remain possible
for Council to promote such a resolution at only four days' notice in
the event of urgent need, in which case there will of course still
have to be a formal meeting at which members of Congregation may
oppose the resolution without giving advance notice of their
intention to do so.

(1) WHEREAS it is expedient to extend the present arrangements
for the cancellation of meetings of Congregation at which all the
business is unopposed, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.


1 In Tit. II, Sect. VI, cl. 3
(Statutes, 1993, p. 13), after `it is to be moved'
insert `; provided that if the resolution is so published not later
than the nineteenth day before that on which it is to be moved,
Council may include in the procedure for dealing with the resolution
the requirement that any member of Congregation who proposes to
oppose the resolution must, by noon on the eighth day before the
meeting at which the resolution is to be moved, give notice in
writing to the Registrar of such opposition. If such notice has been
received by that time from at least two members of Congregation in
respect of a resolution for opposition to which Council has imposed
that requirement, the Registrar shall publish the notice in the
University Gazette not later than the fourth day before the meeting;
if such notice has not been so received, the resolution shall, at the
conclusion of proceedings on it, be declared by the Chairman to be
carried without question put, and the provisions of Sect. III, cl. 10
of this title shall not apply to the resolution'.

2 Ibid., delete `It shall contain' and substitute
`A special resolution under clause 1 (a) above shall
contain'.

3 Ibid., delete `The resolution shall not be
moved' and substitute `Unless the resolution is declared carried
without question put in accordance with the preceding provisions of
this clause, it shall not be moved'.

Explanatory note to Statute (2)

Council and the General Board, with the concurrence of the Visitors
of the Ashmolean Museum, have adopted a proposal by the committee set
up by the General Board (under the procedure for the regular review
of faculties and departments) to review the Ashmolean Museum that the
constitution of the Visitors should be changed to enable them to take
a more active role in formulating policy and promoting the interests
of the museum. To this end the following statute establishes a
smaller body of Visitors. The concurrent abolition of the existing
Standing Committee of the Visitors (with provision for internal
consultation in future being dealt with through a new departmental
committee) will mean that the Visitors assume responsibility for
matters which have in practice in recent years been carried out by
the Standing Committee. Provision is made for the Vice-Chancellor,
who has until recently taken the chair at meetings, to appoint a
chairman. Council intends to take into account in making its
appointments the interests of the bodies which will no longer be
represented directly (Congregation, the Bodleian Library, and
Brasenose College), while the General Board will take into account
the interests of the relevant faculty boards. It is intended that of
the co-opted members at least two will be external persons, and
formal provision is made for this. The new arrangements are to take
effect from 1 January 1996.

As part of the arrangements agreed by Council and the Board in
response to the recommendations of the review committee, the decree
to be made by Council if the statute is approved abolishes the
existing Standing Committee of the Visitors and the departmental
consultative committees and establishes a new museum-wide
departmental committee.

(2) WHEREAS it is expedient to amend the constitution of the
Visitors of the Ashmolean Museum, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS
FOLLOWS.


1 In Tit. VIII, Sect. V, cl. 4
(Statutes, 1993, p. 61), delete sub cll.
(a)–(c) and substitute:

`(a)The Visitors of the museum shall be:

(1) the Vice-Chancellor;

(2) a chairman who shall be appointed by the
Vice-Chancellor;

(3) one of the Proctors or the Assessor as may be
agreed between them;

(4)–(6) three persons appointed by Council;

(7)–(9) three persons appointed by the General
Board.

(b) The Visitors shall have power to co-opt up to four
additional members of whom not more than two shall be members of
Congregation.

(c) The vice-chairman shall hold office for three years
and may be reappointed for one further period of up to three years.
Elected and co-opted members shall hold office for four years and
shall be re-eligible. No person holding office in the museum (other
than the office of Curator of the Cast Gallery) shall be eligible to
be a Visitor.'

2 This statute shall be effective from 1 January
1996.

Decree to be made by Council if the Statute is approved

1 In Ch. III, Sect. XI, § 1
(Statutes, 1993, p. 238), delete cl. 5 and
substitute:

`5. The Visitors shall set up a departmental committee, the
membership of which shall be confined to academic staff working in
the museum. The balance between elected and ex officio members (and
the method of election of the former and the definition of the
latter), and the provision (if any) for co-opted members, shall be
subject to the approval of the General Board, which may modify a
particular provision touching these matters if it shall think fit on
grounds of general university policy. The function of the committee
shall be to advise the director on all matters affecting the museum,
with particular reference to annual estimates, allocation of
resources and accommodation, and appointments of academic-related
staff. Meetings shall be held not less often than once a term and
minutes shall be kept of each meeting.'

existing cl. 14 as cl. 13.

Explanatory note to Statute (3)

Following the adoption by Council of the recommendations of the
Working Party on Statutory Posts which concern inter alia
procedure for appointments to professorships and related posts,
Council and the General Board have agreed that it would be desirable
for the Directorship of the Ashmolean Museum to be subject to the
same electoral procedure as professorships. This requires the
establishment of a nine-member electoral board, for which the
following statute, and the decree to be made by Council if the
statute is approved, provide. The intention is that the new
arrangements should be in place for the election of a successor to
the current director, who retires on 30 September 1997.

(3) WHEREAS it is expedient to establish an electoral board to
appoint the Director of the Ashmolean Museum, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS
AS FOLLOWS.


In Tit. VIII, Sect. V, cl. 6 (Statutes, 1993, p. 61),
delete `(a) a Director of the Ashmolean Museum;
(b)'.

Decree to be made by Council if the Statute is approved

In Ch. III, Sect. XI, § 2 (Statutes, 1993, p. 239),
insert cl. 5:

`5. The Director shall be elected by an electoral board consisting
of:

(1) the Vice-Chancellor, or, if the head of the college with
which the directorship is on that occasion associated is Vice-
Chancellor, a person appointed by Council;

(2) the head of the college with which the professorship is
associated on that occasion or, if the head is unable or unwilling to
act, a person appointed by the governing body of the college;

(3) a person appointed by the governing body of the college
specified in (2) of this clause;

(4) a person appointed by Council;

(5), (6) two persons appointed by the General Board;

(7)–(9) three persons appointed by the Visitors of the
Ashmolean Museum.'

Explanatory note to Statute (4)

The Delegates of University Police reviewed their functions in the
light of the establishment of the University Security Committee in
Trinity Term 1992. They concluded that little of the delegates' role
would remain after the formation of that committee and expressed
themselves as willing to be dissolved, a proposal with which Council
agreed. However, the legislation to abolish the Delegates of
University Police was deferred pending the outcome of the recent
review of the operation and organisation of the Proctors' Office.

The review committee has now reported to Council. It has
recommended certain staffing changes and, in the light of its concern
that appropriate arrangements should be made for the supervision of
the organisation and operation of the Proctors' Office, including the
long-term appraisal and career development of staff, the review
committee has proposed that a smaller body than the Delegates of
University Police, with less purely formal representation, be
established in their place and be charged with these
responsibilities. Such a body would provide continuity and could
therefore play a role in the longer-term development of the Proctors'
Office; it could also provide representation of the interests of the
Proctors' Office on a continuing basis within the University, and act
as a source of informal assistance to successive Proctors themselves.
Council agrees with this proposal and the following statute, and the
decree to be made by Council if the statute is approved, provide for
the abolition of the Delegates of University Police and the
establishment of a new body, the Committee for the Proctors'
Office.

(4) WHEREAS it is expedient to abolish the Delegates of
University Police and to establish in their place the Committee for
the Proctors' Office, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.


In Tit. VIII, Sect. VI (Statutes, 1993, p. 62), delete
`Delegates of University Police' and substitute:

`Committee for the Proctors' Office'.

Decree to be made by Council if the Statute is approved

1 In Ch. III (Statutes, 1993, p.
292), insert new Sect. LII as follows and renumber existing Sectt.
LII–LVI (pp. 292–7) as Sectt. LIII–LVII:

`Section LII. Proctors' Office, Committee for the

1. There shall be a Committee for the Proctors' Office which shall
comprise:

(1) the Vice-Chancellor or his or her nominee, who shall be
chairman;

(2), (3) the Proctors;

(4) the Chairman of the University Security Committee;

(5), (6) two members appointed by Council, at least one of whom
shall be a former Proctor.

Those elected under (5)–(6) shall hold office for a period
of
five years and shall be eligible for re-election, provided that a
casual vacancy shall be filled for the remainder of the period of
office of the person being replaced.

2. The committee shall meet as frequently as business dictates.

3. The committee shall be responsible for ensuring that the
Proctors' Office is organised and operates in a way which provides
adequate support for the Proctors and the Assessor, and shall
represent the interests of the Proctors' Office on a continuing basis
within the University.

4. The committee shall, under Council, have control of any moneys
placed at its disposal by Council for the staffing and running of the
Proctors' Office and shall have responsibility for any staff
appointed against such moneys, including such persons as the
Vice-Chancellor may think fit to appoint as Constables under the
powers reserved to the Chancellor or Vice-Chancellor in section 23 of
the Oxford Police Act, 1881. The committee shall also be responsible
for meeting the expenses of Special Constables appointed by the
Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor and expenses incurred by the Proctors
in connection with their duties.

5. The committee shall be responsible for the appointment,
induction, appraisal, and career development of the Clerk to the
Proctors, who shall have the general responsibility under the
Proctors for the supervision and the direction of the staff of the
office except for those members of staff, including the Constables,
for whom responsibility is allocated by the Proctors to the
University Marshal.

6. The committee shall be available for consultation on an informal
basis by the Proctors.'

2 Ibid., delete Sect. LXXII, concerning the
Delegates of University Police (p. 309).

3 This decree shall have immediate effect,
provided that the initial periods of office of the first members of
the Committee for the Proctors' Office shall be so phased as to
ensure a regular subsequent rotation of appointments.

Explanatory note to Statute (5)

The following statute, and the decree to be made by Council if the
statute is approved, which are promoted on the recommendation of the
Social Studies Board and with the concurrence of the General Board,
the Modern History Board, and All Souls College, change the title of
the Gladstone Professorship of Government and Public Administration
by deleting the last three words. This is intended to emphasise the
centrality of the chair to the study of Politics within the
University. A corresponding change is made in the prescribed duties
of the post. In addition, the decree reconstitutes the electoral
board for the chair to include two appointees of the General Board
and one of the sub-faculty of Politics, and to exclude an appointee
of the Modern History Board. The enlargement from a seven-member to a
nine-member board, in line with a recommendation of the Working Party
on Statutory Posts, gives the opportunity to broaden representation
and increase external membership.

Explanatory note to Statute (9)

The following statute, which is promoted on the recommendation of the
Literae Humaniores Board and with the concurrence of the General
Board, abolishes the current requirement that candidates for Craven
Fellowships must have entered upon the eighth term from their
matriculation before an award can be made, on the grounds that this
rule serves no useful purpose and it is undesirable in particular to
exclude from receiving an award in their first or second year
graduate students who did not take a first degree at Oxford.

that candidates for Craven Fellowships must have entered upon the
eighth term from their matriculation, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS

BODLEIAN LIBRARY


Disruption in central Bodleian reading
rooms during Induction Week
(4–6 October)

Readers are warned that there will be considerable disruption in
certain reading rooms in the central Bodleian during Induction Week.
Throughout the three days Wednesday, 4 October, to Friday, 6 October,
library staff will be engaged in taking groups of new underdgraduates
round different parts of the library and giving them introductory
talks in reading rooms.

These talks will be taking place in the Lower Reading Room
Catalogue and General Reference Section, the Upper Camera, the Lower
Camera, and the PPE Reading Room. Disruption will be particularly
obvious in the Lower Reading Room, where there could be as many as
four groups being taken round at the same time, with ten or more
students in each group. Similar talks may take place on a smaller
scale in other reading rooms during this week and the week following.

The Library is aware that these sessions will cause
inconvenience to readers, but believes that it is important to offer
library introductions to new students during their first week here.

ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY TEACHERS

The Association of University Teachers is both a professional
association and a trade union, committed to the advancement of
university education and research. At the national level, the AUT is
the recognised union for academic and academic-related staff. Besides
its concern for more general questions of university education and
research, the AUT negotiates salary levels and conditions of
employment with the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals.

The Oxford branch of the AUT is open for membership to
university and college employees, whether academic or
academic-related. It has over 900 members. It is the official body
with which the University discusses priorities and problems bearing
on education and research, and negotiates solutions to them.
Discussions between the Oxford AUT and university officers occur
formally once per term at a meeting of a Joint Consultative
Committee, but there are many other informal meetings to discuss
particular problems, including those affecting the conditions of
employment of academic and academic-related staff, such as the
`waiver clause' for those employed on contract grants. The local AUT
also provides confidential advice on problems relating to terms and
conditions of employment.

Application for membership and other enquiries can be made to
Mrs Anne Hendry, Administrative Secretary, Oxford AUT, New Barnett
House, 28 Little Clarendon Street, Oxford OX1 2HY (telephone and fax:
(2)70418, e-mail: aut@vax.ox.ac.uk) (9.30 a.m.--3 p.m.,
Monday--Friday).

Enquiries may also be directed to the following: Kit Bailey
(Honorary Secretary), Department of Plant Sciences (telephone:
(2)75090); Denis O'Driscoll (Honorary Treasurer), Department of
Biochemistry (telephone: (2)75260); Arthur Marsh (Personal Cases), St
Edmund Hall (telephone: (2)74170).

Two meetings of the Oxford AUT will be held in Michaelmas Term.
The Termly Meeting will take place on Tuesday, 24 October (third

CHANGES IN REGULATIONS


1 General Board of the Faculties

Removal of Graduate Students from the Register

Note. Arising out of a number of cases involving graduate
students,
the General Board has reviewed its regulations relating to the
removal of a
graduate student from the Register. The Board has concluded, after
taking
legal advice, that it is necessary for the regulations to be revised
and
extended to provide a fuller framework of guidance and procedure for
all those
involved. In Examination Decrees, 1994, p. 734, delete
ll.
26–41 and substitute:

`1. A faculty board which considers that it may be necessary to
consider
the removal of a student from the Register on academic grounds shall,
except
in cases requiring immediate action, follow the procedures for
counselling and
warnings set out in paras. 4–6.

2. A faculty board shall not be required to follow the procedures
for the
removal of a graduate student from the Register where a student
ceases to hold
the status of a student for a degree through failure to meet the
requirements
laid down in the decrees and regulations governing that degree. In
particular
where a student fails to achieve transfer within the prescribed time
his or
her status automatically lapses, and his or her name is removed from
the
Register.

3. A faculty board shall not be required to follow the procedures
for
counselling and warnings set out below in cases of particular gravity
and/or
urgency or where it considers, for whatever reason, that immediate
action is
required, and in such circumstances a faculty board may immediately
notify the
Committee for Graduate Studies as set out at paragraph 6 below and
the matter
will proceed as set out in that and subsequent paragraphs. In these
circumstances, the faculty board should indicate to the Committee for
Graduate
Studies why the procedures for counselling and warnings are not to be
followed
in that instance.

4.1. Subject to para. 3 above, wherever practicable, the formal
procedures
for the removal of a student from the Register should be preceded by
private
and informal counselling involving the student's supervisor and
society, with
the object of establishing the cause of any problem and advising
appropriate
remedial action.

4.2. If informal means are not effective in producing the
necessary
improvement, the student will be invited to a formal interview.
Written notice
of a formal interview should be given at least seven days before it
takes
place. Such notice will include an indication of the nature and
purpose of the
interview and the problem or problems that the interview is intended
to
address. The student will have the right to put his or her case and
to be
accompanied by a friend. The formal interview will be conducted by
the head of
department or Director of Graduate Studies who on the conclusion of
the
interview and if further action is considered necessary will issue
either
(a) a first formal warning, to be confirmed in writing to
the student
and to his or her supervisor and society, setting out the reason for
which it
is given, and specifying a period of time for improvement to be made
(which
period should in no case be less than one month or more than three
months); or
(b) a final warning as set out in 5 below.

4.3. If the student unreasonably fails to attend the formal
interview, a
formal warning in writing may be issued without interview, and the
student
shall be required to acknowledge receipt of the formal warning.

5.1. If the first formal warning issued under 4.2 above is not
effective in
producing the necessary improvement, the head of department or
Director of
Graduate Studies shall invite the student to a second formal
interview. The
procedure will be as for the first formal interview. At the
conclusion of the
interview the head of department or Director of Graduate Studies
shall, if
further action is required, issue a final warning, which shall be
confirmed
in writing to the student and to his or her supervisor and society.

5.2. Where a final warning is issued under 4.2 or 5.1 above the
warning
itself and the written confirmation should make it clear that if the
necessary
improvement is not achieved within the specified period, the faculty
board may
initiate action for the removal of the student from the Register of
Graduate
Students.

6. Where a final written warning is issued to a graduate student,
a copy of
the written warning shall be sent to the Committee for Graduate
Studies of the
General Board. Where, following a final written warning, the
necessary
improvement is not achieved within the specified period and further
action is
indicated, the Committee for Graduate Studies shall be informed by
the
secretary of the faculty board concerned. A full report of the action
taken by
the faculty board in relation to the student shall be made to the
Proctors who
shall decide whether further action should be taken and, if so,
whether under
the relevant disciplinary procedures of the University or under the
faculty
board's power to remove a student from the Register of Graduate
Students on
academic grounds. The Proctors' ruling (which may include a decision
that no
further action is to be taken) shall be taken without reference to
the
Committee for Graduate Studies and/or the General Board, and shall be
final.

7.1. Where the Proctors determine that it is appropriate for the
matter to
be considered under the faculty board's power to initiate action for
the
removal of a student from the Register of Graduate Students, the
faculty board
shall seek the approval of the Chairman of the General Board to
undertake any
such action. Where such approval is given, the faculty board shall
inform the
student and the student's society and supervisor, in writing, with a
minimum
of seven days' notice, of its intention to consider the removal of
the student
from the Register, set out its reasons and invite comments. In
particular the
board shall inform the student of his or her right under paragraph
7.3 to
present his or her case.

7.2. A faculty board shall delegate the task of hearing the
student's case
to a panel comprising at least three of its members and shall set out
the
terms of reference to be followed by the panel. The faculty board
shall not
appoint any member who has had a previous connection with the student
or his
or her work.

7.3. The student may be accompanied by a friend and shall have the
right to
hear and to challenge any evidence presented to the panel. The
student may
present his or her case in writing or orally, or both, as the student
wishes,
and the student's society and supervisor shall have the same rights.
(All
written evidence shall be circulated to the student, the student's
supervisor,
and the student's society not less than four days before the panel
considers
the case.) In conducting a hearing, the panel shall ensure that the
student
has every opportunity to hear and to challenge the case made out by
the
faculty board for the removal of the student from the Register
including any
evidence (written or oral) which the panel will consider in reaching
a
conclusion. Where the student fails to appear without good cause, the
panel
may proceed in the student's absence.

8. The panel shall then determine its decision as to whether the
student's
name shall, or shall not, be removed from the Register of Graduate
Students.
The decision shall be communicated to the student, society, and
supervisor.
The student shall also be advised in writing of the reasons for the
decision
and of his or her rights of appeal. The faculty board shall also
inform the
Committee for Graduate Studies of the General Board of all cases
where the
board has decided to deprive a student of his or her status.

9.1. A student or his or her society may appeal in writing against
the
decision of the faculty board within fourteen days of the date of the
letter
from the faculty board conveying its decision. The appeal shall be
addressed
to the Committee for Graduate Studies of the General Board (c/o the
Secretary,
General Board Committee for Graduate Studies, University Offices,
Wellington
Square, Oxford OX1 2JD), which shall appoint a sub-committee to
conduct a
hearing of the student's appeal.

9.2. The sub-committee shall include a minimum of three members of
the
Graduate Studies Committee, which shall appoint one of the chosen
members as
chairman, with the power to cast an additional vote if necessary. The
sub-committee may seek such legal advice as it believes to be
necessary for
the proper conduct of its duties, and shall have power to require any
members
of the University to assist it in the hearing.

9.3. The sub-committee shall give the faculty board, the student,
the
student's society, and the student's supervisor, not less than seven
days'
notice in writing, of the date and time of the hearing, and shall
give them
the opportunity to make representations to the sub-committee orally
and/or in
writing. The student may be accompanied by a friend and shall have
the right
to hear and to challenge any evidence (written or oral) presented to
the
sub-committee; the student may present his or her case in writing, or
orally,
or both, as the student wishes: the faculty board, the student's
society, and
the student's supervisor shall have the same rights. (All written
evidence
shall be circulated to the faculty board, the student, the student's
supervisor, and the student's society not less than four days before
the
sub-committee considers the case.)

9.4. At the conclusion of a hearing, the sub-committee shall have
power to:

(i) confirm the faculty board's decision to remove the
student's
name from the Register of Graduate Students;

(ii) uphold the student's appeal and direct that the student's
name shall
remain on the Register of Graduate Students;

(iii) impose such lesser penaly or requirement in place of the
removal of
the student's name from the Register of Graduate Students as it deems
appropriate.

9.5. In reaching its decision, the sub-committee shall have regard
to:

(a) whether the faculty board correctly followed the
required
procedures, and, in the case of procedural irregularity or
irregularities,
whether any irregularity or irregularities were such as to have
materially
prejudiced the faculty board's enquiry;

(b) whether the faculty board's decision could reasonably
have
been reached on the evidence before it;

(c) any evidence presented to the sub-committee which was
not
available to the faculty board's panel;

(d) any mitigating circumstances offered by or on behalf
of the
student;

(e) any other factors which in the opinion of the sub-
committee
are relevant to a fair consideration of the student's appeal.

9.6. The sub-committee shall communicate its decision to the
student, to
the student's society and supervisor, and to the faculty board, in
writing,
within two months of the conclusion of any hearing. The decision of
the
sub-committee will be final, subject only to a complaint to the
Proctors.'
