HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL 24 May


1 Decrees

Council has made the following decrees, to come into effect on 11
June.

List of the decrees:



Decree (1): Abolition of the Institute of
Economics and Statistics and establishment of a Department of
Economics

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Social
Studies Board and with the concurrence of the General Board,
abolishes the Institute of Economics and Statistics, establishes the
Department of Economics, and makes provision for the headship of the
department.

It is envisaged that the establishment of a Department of Economics
within the new building on the St Cross site would bring two main
advantages to the University as a whole and to individual members of
the sub-faculty. First, it is becoming more important to have the
central oversight and control over resources which is possible with a
head of department but which is only partially possible with the
present structure. Secondly, bringing the faculty together on a
single site has a greater potential for the synergies of joint work
and for associated research proposals which are also of increasing
importance. To achieve these ends, a central view and administrative
resources will be needed. The structure of the proposed department
will make this possible.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Ch. III (Statutes, 1997, p.
302), delete Sect. XXXII and substitute:

`Section XXXII. Economics, Department of

1. The Board of the Faculty of Social Studies shall exercise
general supervision over the department.

2. The department shall be assigned by the General Board for a
specified period not exceeding three years in the first instance to a
person holding an established academic post in the University or an
equivalent appointment in a college or other society, after
consultation with the Board of the Faculty of Social Studies. The
person to whom the headship of the department is assigned from time
to time shall have the title of Head of the Department of Economics.
The head of department shall be eligible for reappointment for a
maximum of one further period of office not exceeding three years.

3. The duties of the head of department shall include the general
supervision, under the Board of the Faculty of Social Studies, of
research, advanced study, and teaching in the department. The head of
department shall engage in advanced study or research and shall give
such number of lectures and hold such number of classes as are
required by the terms of appointment of his or her normal university
post, except that the Board of the Faculty of Social Studies may
recommend to the General Board that he or she be given remission from
such specified duties attached to that post as shall be considered
appropriate in view of his or her additional responsibilities as head
of department. The head of department shall have charge of the
department subject to clause 1 of this decree and to Ch. III, Sect.
LXIX, concerning the St Cross Building Management Committee. The head
of department shall receive a special allowance as set out in Ch.
VII, Sect. I, § 7, Schedule V.

4. The staff of the department shall be appointed, and their
duties and conditions of service shall be prescribed, by the head of
department, provided that

carrying a stipend of more than the maximum prescribed in Ch. VII,
Sect. IV, § 1, cl. 2 (ii), shall be made by the faculty board on
the recommendation of a committee appointed by the board (of which
the head of department shall be a member, and which may include other
persons not being members of the board), and the duties and
conditions of service of any such appointment shall be prescribed by
the faculty board. Such appointments shall also require approval by
the General Board, such approval to cover the person appointed, his
or her stipend, period of office, and duties, and any other
conditions as determined by the faculty board;

of any statute, decree, or regulation of general application.

by Decree (2) of 16 July 1998, Gazette, Vol. 128, p.

to remain in residence and to enjoy any of the privileges or benefits

procedure should be simplified, and applied to all students liable to
pay fees.

home/EU students and certain others for 1999–2000, and for
overseas students for 2000–1

Explanatory note

The Department for Education and Employment has announced that the
tuition fee introduced for award-holding home/EU undergraduates
should be increased to £1,025 for the year 1999–2000.

will apply in 1999–2000 in respect of students from the Channel
Islands or the Isle of Man. Colleges will be informed of the position

levels of fees to be charged to overseas students have been set well
in advance. Cll. 11–13 of this decree set out the fees for
2000–1.

Recognised and Visiting Students, which is half the Category A rate
(i.e. £3,342 in 1999–2000). Cl. 6 sets the fee for members
of the University working on the Foreign Service Course at the
Category B rate (i.e. £8,910 for 1999–2000). Cl. 7 makes

1999–2000 for the Diploma Course in European Studies (intended

1 Promulgation of Statutes

Statute (1): Changes concerning certain senior administrative
posts in the central administration

Explanatory note

Following a review by the Registrar of the central administration,
and after consultation with the officers concerned, Council has
agreed that it is desirable to change the existing legislation
governing the `deputies to the Registrar'. The following statute, and
the decree to be made by Council if the statute is approved,
accordingly delete specific references to those officers by title
from the legislation.

The new titles, and those of certain other senior administrative
officers, which are intended to reflect more clearly the functions
concerned, are as follows. (Only the first three on the list are
referred to specifically in the existing legislation.)


Existing title                     New title

                              the Chest

schemes. The present post-holders will still be required to reside
within twenty-five miles of Carfax by cl. 5, and future post-holders
will be required to do so by the terms of their appointment in
accordance with the second paragraph of Ch. V, Sect. VIII, cl. 1

to superannuation by the general provision at the end of Ch. VIII,

always that such delegations are not inconsistent with the due
performance of the duties set out in clause 10 below, and that they
may be withdrawn (either generally or in respect of a specific item)
at any time, and that such delegations shall not relieve the
Registrar of general responsibility for the matters delegated.'

2 Ibid., delete existing cll. 9–12 (pp.
73–4) and substitute:

`10. The University's senior administrative officers shall be under
the general direction of the Registrar and shall be responsible to
him or her for the due performance of their duties, provided always
that they shall have the right to make their views on financial,
professional, and technical matters known to the Vice-Chancellor,
Council, and the appropriate committees of the University.

appointed by Council, after consultation with the Registrar.'

established posts in the highest administrative grade.'

1 In Ch. V, Sect. VIII, cl. 1, concerning persons who are required
to reside within the University (Statutes, 1997, p.

... The Deputy Registrar (General)'.

officers appointed under the provisions of Tit. IX, Sect. VII, cl.
11'.

5 This decree shall have immediate effect,
provided that the present holders of the posts concerned shall
continue to be required to reside within twenty-five miles of Carfax
for the remainder of their tenure of those posts, notwithstanding the
provisions of clause 1.

Statute (2) : Procedures in the event of the ill-health of Junior
Members

Explanatory note

The following statute sets out procedures to be adopted when the
Proctors have reason to believe that a Junior Member may be suffering
from serious ill-health. The Committee of Vice-Chancellors and
Principals recommended in its report on disciplinary procedures (the
Zellick Report) that such procedures should be introduced, noting
that disciplinary procedures would not be appropriate. It should also
be noted that such provision already exists for staff (Tit. XVI, Part
IV, Statutes, 1997, p. 174).

(2) WHEREAS it is expedient to provide procedures for the
consideration of problems arising from the serious ill-health of a
Junior Member, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

1 Insert new Title XIV (Statutes,
1997, p. 107) as follows and renumber existing Titles XIV--XVI (pp.
107--67) as Titles XV--XVII:

`TITLE XIV

OF JUNIOR MEMBERS AND MEDICAL INCAPACITY

1. The Regius Professor of Medicine shall be responsible for the
appointment of a panel of medical practitioners who shall be available,
when called upon, to assist the Proctors in the administration of the
procedures prescribed in this Title. In the event that the Regius
Professor is not clinically qualified, he or she shall take appropriate
medical advice before making the appointments. When a panel member is
approached under these procedures he or she shall be known as the
University Doctor for the purpose of these procedures.

2. The term `Junior Member' shall have the same meaning as in Title
XIII.

3. In the event that the Proctors believe that a Junior Member is
suffering from a serious problem arising from ill-health, whether this
has come to light in the course of a disciplinary investigation or
otherwise, they may refer the student to the University Doctor. Before
any such reference is made, the student shall be given a reasonable
opportunity to make representation to the Proctors as to why such a
reference should not take place.

4. If disciplinary proceedings have already been commenced, they
shall be adjourned pending a determination under these procedures.

5. The University Doctor shall be responsible for seeking medical
evidence from the Junior Member's general practitioner and may
recommend that the Junior Member submit to an independent medical
examination at the University's expense. Any request for a medical
report from a Junior Member's general practitioner shall observe the
provisions of the Access to Medical Reports Act 1988.

6. In the event that a Junior Member fails to co-operate with the
University Doctor's inquiry, or refuses to provide a medical report, or
to attend for the purposes of a medical examination, he or she may be
liable to suspension by the Proctors.

7. The University Doctor, having considered the evidence available,
shall report his or her findings to the Proctors.

8. If the Proctors are of the opinion that further action may be
necessary, they shall summons the Junior Member to a hearing to
consider all the evidence. The Junior Member may be represented at the
hearing by a member of Congregation. Having considered the evidence,
the Proctors may proceed in one of the following ways:

(a) in any case of such gravity that expulsion might be
considered, the Proctors shall refer the matter for consideration by a
Medical Board;

(b) in any case where disciplinary proceedings have been
adjourned, but the Proctors are satisfied that the Junior Member is not
suffering from a serious problem relating to ill-health, they may
resume those proceedings;

(c) in any other case

(i) they may discharge the Junior Member, whether absolutely, or
subject to conditions (e.g. as to medical treatment); or

(ii) they may suspend the Junior Member (whether or not subject to
certain conditions) for a specified period or for an indefinite period.

9. In the event that the Junior Member fails to attend or to make
representations, the Proctors may proceed in his or her absence.

10. Any hearing under these procedures shall be in camera.

11. Where a Junior Member's conduct gives rise to a need for urgent
action, the Proctors may suspend him or her forthwith pending
investigation, such suspension not to exceed twenty-one days. The
Junior Member shall have the right of appeal to the Vice-Chancellor or
to his or her duly appointed deputy in respect of such an interim
order.

12. A Junior Member who has been suspended on the grounds of his or her

state of health under clause 8 above shall be entitled to invite the
Proctors to reconsider the case after the expiry of at least fourteen
days from the date of the initial decision and on the production of
medical evidence in support of his or her claim.

13. The Junior Member shall have a right of appeal in respect of an
indefinite suspension, or in respect of the conditions attached to his
or her suspension under clause 8 (c) (ii) above, to the
Medical Board, and shall have a right to be represented at that appeal.
The decision of the Medical Board shall be final.

14. If a case has been referred to the Medical Board for consideration
under clause 8 (a) above, the Junior Member shall be given
reasonable notice of any hearing, and shall be entitled to legal or
other representation before the board.

15. The Medical Board, having considered the evidence, shall recommend
to the Proctors that they

(a) discharge the Junior Member, whether or not subject to
conditions; or

(b) suspend the Junior Member (whether or not subject to
certain conditions) for a specified period, or for an indefinite
period; or

(c) expel the Junior Member.

16. There shall be a right of appeal to the High Steward against
expulsion.

17. The Medical Board shall comprise

(1) a person nominated by Council;

(2) a person nominated by Council in consultation with the Junior
Member's college;

(3) a medically qualified chairman nominated by the Regius Professor
of Medicine.'

2 In Tit. XV, Sect. VII, SCHEDULE (p. 117, as
renumbered by clause 1 above), delete `Title XV' and `Title XVI' and
substitute:

`Title XVI Title XVII'.

2 Voting on Special Resolution allocating
space at Begbroke to the Department of Materials

Explanatory note

The University purchased the Begbroke Technology Centre (now renamed
the Begbroke Science and Business Park) in December 1998 under an
arrangement by which the Department of Materials would occupy part of
the site and contribute towards the costs of the capital funds
required. The remainder of the site has been offered on similar terms
to other university departments and is also being advertised for
letting to outside organisations at market rates. The following special
resolution allocates the relevant part of the site to the Department of
Materials.

Text of Special Resolution

That some 3,268 sq.m. at the Begbroke Science and Business Park
comprising buildings numbers 317, 318, 319, and 321 be allocated to the
Department of Materials for ten years on payment of an annual charge
relating to the cost of capital required to purchase this space, such
charge to be set by the Resources Committee or successor body and
reviewed every three years or whenever there is a material change in
the circumstances.

DEPARTMENT FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION

The Department for Continuing Education exists to make the University
accessible to men and women in ways which complement the University's
provision for its resident members. Each year the department mounts
several hundred courses, either part-time or short full-time,
covering most subjects taught within the University (except
management and clinical medicine). Courses last anything from one day
to ten weeks (full time), and between ten weeks and two years on a
part-time basis. Currently about 15,900 students enrol annually for
the department's courses, the average length of study being twenty
hours. A recent development has been the introduction of technology-
assisted courses, using the Internet to supplement classroom
teaching. Apart from a large number of individual members of the
University who offer courses or give lectures, the Department for
Continuing Education works in co- operation with an increasing number
of other departments and faculties throughout the University. It
welcomes expressions of interest from individuals and departments who
wish to become involved in or to explore continuing education
activities. The department's main provision is organised through
three programme offices (see below), each of which is able to provide
more detailed information on current and forthcoming activities. In
addition, the Kellogg Residential Centre, when not being used for
courses, can occasionally be made available for conferences and other
residential meetings.

Return to List of Contents of this section


The Public Programme Office

This Office (Director: Mr R.T. Rowley) offers to the public a wide
range of study opportunities in most academic disciplines through
part-time day, evening and short residential courses. In 1996–7
almost 12,000 adult students enrolled on lifelong learning programmes
offered through the Public Programme Division. Many programmes have
open entry and require no formal entry qualifications. However, the
majority of courses are now either award-bearing or carry higher
education credit. The award- bearing courses are offered at access
undergraduate and post graduate level, and do call for evidence of
ability to complete the programme satisfactorily. During the summer
the Public Programme Division offers a series of study opportunities
for domestic and European students through the Oxford University
Summer School for Adults, a Local History Summer School and the
Summer Academy based at Keble College. The Division engages a large
number of part-time tutors, both from within the University and
outside, and individuals interested in offering specific courses or
contribution to other programmes are invited to contact the office.
Details of all courses are publicised in the Annual Prospectus or are
available at any time from the Manager of Public Programmes
(telephone: Oxford (2)70360).

The Continuing Professional Development Centre

Short and extended courses

This Centre (Director: Dr M.A. Gray) works with departments and
faculties throughout the University to offer courses designed to meet
the needs of individuals and organisations drawn from industry, the
professions, commerce, and academia. Courses vary from one- or two-
day intensive updating courses based on the latest academic research
to longer courses enabling professionals to review advances in
specialised fields, and acquire new areas of expertise and
qualifications. Areas covered include engineering, law, information
technology and computing, mathematics, biomedical science, and
personal skills development. Contributors to courses include Oxford
academics and research staff and experts from other universities and
organisations in the UK and abroad.

Conferences/Seminars/Workshops

The CPD Centre is also able to offer a conference organisation and
management service to colleagues within the University and other
organisations. The CPD Centre has specialist skills and more than
fifteen years' collective experience or organising and managing
conferences, seminars, and training courses for up to 500 delegates.
The Centre provides a `total conference package' which combines the
best of personal service with the highest professional standards.
Services offered include the following:

—Conference planning and academic support

—Budget preparation and account management

—Venue sourcing, including residential accommodation, lecture
theatres, hotels, and catering support

—Organisation of exhibitions and displays, design and provision
of publicity

—Promotion/advertising/marketing support

—Mailing; compilation of databases

—Organisation of social programmes, excursions, and tours

—Translation and interpretation services, technical and audio-
visual support

—Pre-registration management and on-site registration services,
preparation of pre-prints, binders, badges

The International Programmes Office

This office (Director: Dr A. Hawkins) offers a wide range of courses
to undergraduates, graduates and continuing education students from
around the world. These courses include year-long full- time
programmes for Japanese graduates and diplomats from the Republic of
China, Taiwan, as well as a large number of three- or four-week
courses held during the summer for students from Europe and North
America. Programmes are held in partnership with institutions such as
the Smithsonian Institution, the University of California at
Berkeley, Duke University, the University of Virginia and
Northwestern University in America. International Programmes also
works with the British Council, the European Commission, and the FCO,
as well as offering courses in partnership with the Bodleian Library
and many other departments and colleges within the University.
Subjects covered in these courses include topics from law and
industrial relations through to archaeology, art history, and the
physical and biological sciences. Tutors are drawn from Oxford
academic and research staff, and expertise is also recruited from
outside the University. Programmes vary in size from small groups of
twenty students to larger programmes of over 200 participants. During
the summer many residential International Programmes, including the
Oxford University Summer Programmes in English Literature and in
History, Politics and Society, are held in colleges throughout
Oxford, in addition to those held at the Rewley House Residential
Centre. Over the next few years the range of courses offered by the
International Programmes Office will be expanded, drawing in more
students from Europe, from countries formerly part of the Soviet
Union, and from elsewhere around the world. As the work of the
International Programmes Office expands, approaches would be welcomed
from those colleges, departments and other institutions who have
accommodation from which they would like to generate further income
or from individuals with suitable qualifications interested in
teaching on international programmes. Telephone: Oxford (2)70456.

Technology-Assisted Lifelong Learning (TALL)

TALL (Director: Jonathan Darby) was established in 1996 with support
from the Esmée Fairbairn Charitable Trust and the W.K. Kellogg
Foundation to investigate and develop new ways of using technology to
support lifelong learning. It is directed by Jonathan Darby who
previously directed the HE Funding Councils' and DENI's Computers in
Teaching Initiative. Many aspects of on- line education remain poorly
understood. TALL is conducting research into:

Models of delivery—identifying optimal ways of
using technology to deliver courses and educational services;

international transferability—addressing issues
such as use of language, culture, educational systems and differing
educational needs with the aim of ensuring that Oxford-produced on-
line courses are designed in such a way that they will be attractive
to students outside the UK;

markets for on-line courses—using surveys to
develop an understanding of the nature of the market for on-line
courses.

TALL is seeking to use technology to design courses of three types:

Hybrid: short intensive periods in Oxford punctuate
Internet- supported study to create a course which uses each form of
teaching for the purposes to which it is best suited.

Fully remote: a course in Italian for Intermediate
and Advanced Learners has been completed with EU support which can be
wholly completed at a distance. A second course, `Databases for
Historians', is about to be piloted.

Curriculum on demand: an innovative teaching system
based on the finding that many students on continuing professional
development courses have highly specific needs that are only
partially met by a group-based course. Each student takes a course
that is tailored to their specific needs.

The TALL programme would welcome ideas for on-line courses from
university colleagues.

FACULTY OF MODERN HISTORY


Building work and extended library closure
in Long Vacation 1999

Rewiring of the building, involving both overhead work and removal of
floorboards, makes it necessary to close the library for eight weeks
rather than the usual five in the Long Vacation. It will last be open
on Saturday, 10 July (9 a.m.–12.45 p.m.) and will then be closed
from Monday, 12 July to Monday, 6 September inclusive. It is expected
that it will be possible to open fully and operate normally from
Tuesday, 7 September. The number of books borrowable for the vacation
will be increased: see notices in the library towards the end of term
for details. It will be possible to leave returned books with the
porters during the closed period.

The common room and kitchen will also be closed during this period.
The Faculty Office expects to stay open: the Graduate Office is
likely to be closed for a short period towards the end of July.
Access should normally be possible to the graduate computing
facilities, but users of these should note that separate building
works involving partly demolishing and rebuilding the boiler room and
erecting an access ramp across the back of the building are both
likely to cause considerable noise and vibration near the computing
room in the second half of July and into August.
