PROGRESS ON ISSUES ARISING FROM,
AND AFTER, THE REPORT OF THE COMMISSION OF INQUIRY

Note: the
Report of the Joint
Working Party on Governance
, set up following the report
of the Commission of Inquiry, has been published as
Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4487 (21
October 1998)

.

The Report of the Commission of Inquiry raised important
questions about the future of the collegiate University,
and coincided with serious developments on college fees.
This note sets out the current position on the major
matters currently under consideration within the
University.

The most significant of the Commission's proposals
related to the governance of the University, including
whether there should be a single body to replace Council
and the General Board (the University's current senior
executive and policy-making bodies under Congregation)
and whether local academic administration should be
placed under large `super-faculty-boards' which would
have a considerable degree of authority, especially over
resources, delegated from the centre. The report of the
working party set up to take these issues further has
been considered by Council and the General Board and is
being widely circulated in a final consultative exercise,
which will include a discussion at the meeting of
Congregation on Tuesday, 1 December. In the light of the
responses received, definitive proposals on the future
arrangements for the governance of the University will be
put to Congregation in Hilary Term 1999.

A further main thrust of the Commission's proposals
concerned academic appointments. They principally
attempted to address certain problems relating to joint
University/college appointments at the lecturer level,
and are being taken forward by another working party
(with representatives of the General Board and of the
colleges). The working party's intention now is to invite
tutors in subject areas in the collegiate University
(through faculty boards or their representatives on the
one hand, and senior tutors on the other) to review, on a
subject-by-subject basis, the current arrangements for
the organisation of teaching in the collegiate
University. The aim is to address the basic question how
best to provide the necessary teaching in each
discipline: the reviews are to cover undergraduate and
graduate studies, to pay equal attention to the needs of
the students and of the academic staff, and to assume
full collaboration between the university and the college
sides, and should not be limited by the structure
represented by existing categories of academic post. When
this process is complete and the working party has an
overview of the similarities and differences of the
agreed approaches to the delivery of teaching across
representative areas, attention will turn to the question
of appropriate contractual formulations to underpin those
approaches. The working party believes that improving
arrangements for teaching will reduce burdens on academic
staff and allow them to balance the requirements of
undergraduate and graduate teaching and research,
improving their quality of life and easing the problems
of recruitment and retention of staff which in certain
areas are acute.

Arrangements for academic duties are one area of
pressing concern: another is salaries. Although these are
obviously linked, an initial review of academic salaries
has been undertaken separately from the work of the
working party on joint appointments (not least since the
working party's task will be very complex and
time-consuming). The Committee on Academic Salaries has
so far made specific proposals about the salary structure
for readers and for departmental lecturers, and a
specific proposal about the age--wage relationship for
lecturers which will be put to Congregation shortly. The
committee will discuss later this term a broad range of
very complex issues relating to salaries: these
discussions will be co-ordinated with the developing
approach, and the likely outcome, of the consideration by
the joint working party on academic appointments of the
question of academic duties and contracts.

The Committee on Academic Salaries and the joint
working party on academic appointments are also
considering the position of university lecturers without
tutorial fellowship (ULNTFs). Specific proposals were
made by the Commission of Inquiry to raise the university
salaries of this category of staff to the joint maximum
plus the average housing allowance, the costs to be
covered by the discontinuation of funds which are
currently used mainly to relieve the burdens on tutorial
fellows. Council and the General Board have noted that
the Commission's proposals raise serious questions about,
for example, comparabilities with readers and professors,
and repercussions for the joint appointments system (if
there were to be no financial disincentive for most
tutorial fellows to resign their college posts). The main
point at issue, however, is one of equity, and Council
and the General Board have agreed to implement a proposal
made by the original working party on this issue (which
included a number of ULNTFs), but not pursued by the
Commission of Inquiry: namely to hold a job evaluation
exercise to try to determine the extent to which the
range of duties of ULNTFs is similar in scope and
complexity to those of university lecturers with tutorial
fellowships.

A further important element of the Commission's
report related to teaching and learning. The new bodies
which may emerge after the decisions on governance will
have a key role in taking these issues forward (and will
need to take account of national developments in the area
of quality assurance).

The Report of the Commission of Inquiry made a number
of recommendations concerning college finances (including
a new financial model relating to joint appointments).
These have to a considerable extent been overtaken by
subsequent developments on college fees. Now that details
of the settlement on this issue are becoming clearer a
joint working party consisting of representatives of the
University and the colleges is discussing the
implications, including the basis on which funds which
will now come to the central University will be
transferred to spending sectors within the collegiate
University in the context of the significant loss of
overall income which is involved.

A further working party is considering ways of
improving access to the University from suitably
qualified candidates from social groups hitherto
under-represented among Oxford students.

The Vice-Chancellor and the Registrar are overseeing
progress on all of these issues and co-ordination of the
various elements. They will also ensure that other
matters of a more detailed nature in the Commission's
report (for example, the position of contract research
staff in so far as it is not covered by the governance
working party and provision of enhanced social facilities
for those staff groups currently provided for through the
University Club) are pursued as appropriate alongside
other key policy developments.

APPOINTMENT OF PRO-VICE-CHANCELLOR
WITH RESPONSIBILITY FOR RELATIONS WITH
EXTERNAL FUNDERS OF RESEARCH IN THE EXPERIMENTAL AND
SOCIAL SCIENCES

PROFESSOR S.D. IVERSEN, MA, D.PHIL., D.SC., Fellow of
Magdalen College and Pro-Vice-Chancellor, has been
appointed to be the Vice-Chancellor's representative in
relations with external funders of research in all areas,
including social sciences, but excluding humanities.

This appointment is designed to maintain and improve the
University's strategic relationships with the main
external funders of university research (such as research
councils, charities, and industry). Professor Iversen
will represent the University's interests to these
external funders, and will inform the University of their
policy objectives and funding strategies, especially in
regard to changes in these policies and strategies.

The regular contacts which individuals and departments
have at present with funding bodies will continue, as
will work currently done in relation to individual
research projects. Members of the University and
departments which have dealings with external funders are
asked to liaise with Professor Iversen, to ensure that
the University maintains a coherent and consistent
approach.
