Decree (3): By-laws of the
Modern Languages Faculty

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
Modern Languages Board, suspends a by-law of the Modern
Languages Faculty which requires at least one-third of
the membership of the faculty to be present at a meeting
for a motion for the amendment of a by-law to be in
order, and replaces this with a provision for by-laws to
be amended by a simple majority on a postal vote. This
legislative device is necessary to permit the faculty to
amend further of its by-laws because attendance at
meetings only very exceptionally reaches the level
currently required.

Text of Decree (3)

Notwithstanding the provisions of the existing by-laws of
the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages, made under
the provisions of Ch. II, Sect. xii, cl. 2
(Statutes, 1995, p. 243), that faculty may
amend its by-laws by a simple majority on a postal ballot
of all members of the faculty.

1 Promulgation of Statute

Statute: Provision for professorial fellowships at Kellogg
College

Explanatory note

The existing statute relating to Kellogg College does not make
provision for it to elect professorial fellows as a specific
category
of fellow. The post of Director of the Oxford University Museum
of
Natural History, which is of professorial status, has been
associated
with the college, and Council has approved the college's request
that
specific provision be made to allow it to elect the holder of
this
post, and the holders of any comparable posts which may from time
to
time be allocated to it, to the appropriate category of
fellowship.
The following statue, and the decree to be made by Council if the
statute is approved, provide accordingly.

WHEREAS it is expedient to make provision to enable
Kellogg
College to elect professorial fellows, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS
FOLLOWS.

In Tit. VII, Sect. V (Statutes, 1995, p. 47), insert
as
new cl. 10 as follows and renumber existing cll. 10--11 as cll.
11-
-12:

`10. The governing body may elect to Professorial Fellowships
at the
college, on terms approved by Council, university professors,
university readers, and holders of other university offices which
are
declared by any university statute or decree to qualify the
holder
for a Professorial Fellowship.'

Decree to be made by Council if the Statute is approved

1 In Ch. VII, Sect. VII, § 1, SCHEDULE, concerning
persons
whose offices entitle them to hold fellowships
(Statutes, 1995, p. 503), after `Keeper of the
Museum of
the History of Science' insert:

`Director of the Oxford University Museum of Natural History'.

2 Ibid., § 2, SCHEDULE A,
concerning
persons whose offices qualify them to hold professorial
fellowships
(p. 504), after `The Director of Postgraduate Medical Education
and
Training' insert:

`The Director of the Oxford University Museum of Natural
History'.

Special Resolution (2): Site for the Institute for
American Studies

Explanatory note

Council has noted that sufficient funds are now in place to allow
the
proposed development of the Institute for American Studies to
proceed, and has agreed, on the recommendation of the Buildings
Committee, to promote the following special resolution allocating
a
site behind No. 1 South Parks Road for a building of
approximately
2,200 sq.m. to house the institute.

Special Resolution (3): Said Business School


Explanatory note

Council announced in the Gazette of 16 January 1997
(p.
592) that Council, Mr Said and his fellow Trustees of the Wafic
Rida
Said Business School Foundation had jointly concluded that it was
not
appropriate to proceed with the proposal to build new premises
for
the University's Business School on the Mansfield Road site, and
hence Council had resolved to withdraw the decision to hold a
postal
vote on the earlier resolution to allocate that site. Council
also
indicated that it would make every effort to identify, and if
appropriate to secure, an alternative site, given the joint
commitment of Council, Mr Said and his fellow trustees to the
goal of
developing a world-class business school on a central site in
Oxford.
This was on the basis that the search would continue until the
end of
Trinity Term 1997 and that a further report would be made to
Congregation during or at the end of that period. In the meantime
Mr
Said agreed to await the outcome of that search before deciding
with
his fellow trustees the position in respect of his earlier offer
of a
benefaction of £20m for the University's Business School.

Council now believes that it has identified an entirely
satisfactory
site for the new building and is at an advanced stage in seeking
to
acquire the freehold. On the assumption that it is able to do so,
the
following special resolution allocates a site of up to 2.4 acres
on
the Oxford station forecourt for the construction of a building
for
the school if planning consent for the building is given. Mr Said
and
his fellow trustees have indicated their willingness to accept
the
site and, if the special resolution is adopted and planning
permission is obtained, Mr Said has generously agreed to make his
£20m benefaction.

The resolution therefore also seeks the endorsement by
Congregation
of the arrangements which would govern Mr Said's benefaction.
These
are set out in further detail in the following paragraphs of this
explanatory note and in the decree set out below which Council
will
make if the special resolution is approved. These arrangements
represent what in the view of Council and the General Board are
entirely appropriate arrangements for the University and the
University's Business School. They take account of the views of
Congregation as expressed in the debate on 5 November 1996 and
of
discussions both in the context of Mr Said's original offer and
subsequently between representatives of the University and Mr
Said
and the Trustees of the Said Business School
Foundation.
In the view of Council and the General Board the proposed
arrangements fully address both the concerns expressed earlier
by
members of Congregation and those of Mr Said and his fellow
trustees.

Return to list of contents of the
resolution



The site

After an exhaustive trawl of possibilities, the University's
Working
Party on Sites, chaired by the Master of Balliol, identified as
the
sole possible alternative site, given the timescale on which the
University wished to proceed, the station forecourt site off
Botley
Road, currently owned by Railtrack. In so doing, the working
party
eliminated as a possibility the Radcliffe Infirmary site, since
it
became clear during discussions held with the relevant NHS
authorities during Hilary Term that there was no possibility of
the
early acquisition of either part of that site or an existing
building
adequate to accommodate the requirements of the school, though
discussions on the acquisition of that site for university
purposes
in the longer term are proceeding. The working party thought that
the
station site was entirely suitable for a world-class business
school,
offering the advantages of ample area, proximity to the rest of
the
University, location by the rail and western road entries to the
city
and a highly visible road frontage. Council and the General Board
share this view and have also noted that the location of a
prestigious building on this site, with appropriate landscaping,
will
do much to improve the amenity of this area and significantly
enhance
the western approach to the city.

The station site comprises a total of 4.3 acres, of which some
0.7
acres constitute the Rewley Abbey ruins and therefore cannot be
developed. The site is currently zoned as 2.3 acres for offices
and 2
acres (at the rear of the site, including the Rewley Abbey ruins)
for
an hotel. The site has not been marketed by Railtrack, and its
possible availability came to light only during the inquiries
carried
out by the working party following the rejection of the Mansfield
Road site. Council and the General Board, on the recommendation
of
their joint Resources Committee, agreed in Hilary Term to pursue
the
purchase of a number of sites in central Oxford, as and when they
came on the market, for future university development, including
the
station forecourt site itself.

The proposal is that the University should allocate a site of
some
2.4 acres (the precise extent has yet to be determined) on that
part
of the site immediately adjacent to Botley Road for use by the
Business School. The University would retain the freehold of the
site
but would grant a 299-year lease to the Said Business
School Foundation to enable it to construct thereon a building
for
the school. Both the site and the building would be owned by the
University, but the University would lease both site and building
to
the foundation for 299 years, and would do so at a peppercorn
rent
for so long as the site was used for the school or such other use
as
may be agreed between the University and the foundation. Details
of
the proposed arrangements are set out in clauses 8 and 12 of the
decree. The value of the site leased would count towards the
University's contribution by way of matching funding (see below).
The
foundation would then buy from the University or from Railtrack
the
balance of the site (i.e. some 2 acres of the total 4.3-acre
site).
This space may well be needed for possible future expansion of
the
school, and will be made available by the foundation to the
school on
such terms as the University and the foundation may agree. In the
interim it would be used for landscaping purposes. It includes
in any
case the Rewley Abbey ruins which cannot be built on and could
be
used only as an architectural and historical feature of the
development. The circumstances which would apply in the event
that
the building ceased to be used for the Business School, or it
were to
be decided that there was no longer a need for any expansion
space,
are set out in clauses 9 and 11 respectively of the decree.
As
will be seen, the University has an option, but no obligation,
to buy
back the lease or purchase the adjacent site (unless in the case
of
the latter planning permission has not been granted and vacant
possession not obtained within one year of the date of the
decree, in
which case the foundation will sell to the University, and the
University will buy, the adjacent site at cost, plus VAT if
applicable, as indicated in clause 10).

Return to list of contents of the
resolution



Funding

As will be seen from the first clause of the decree, Mr
Said's
£20m benefaction would be used for two purposes: £2m
would
be for the purchase of the adjacent site and £18m for the
construction of a building on the site. It is estimated that
construction costs will amount to some £20m, that in
addition
there will be VAT of some £4m and fees of some £3m.
Given
that the benefactor is making available £18m for the
building
itself, there is a funding gap of some £9m on the costs of
the
building, which it is expected the University should seek to
bridge
by fund raising, making use of naming opportunities within the
building. All funding other than the cost of the site itself will
be
raised from outside sources. In detail, the breakdown of the
University's contribution is expected to be as follows:

(a) value of the site (say, £3.75m);

(b) endowment of posts (£12.25m, of which
£8m
has already been raised); and

(c) the funding gap on the building (£9m).

The University would have until the completion of the building
(by,
say, the year 2000 at the earliest) to raise the matching
funding.
There have already been very positive discussions with a
potential
benefactor who is considering making a significant contribution
towards the shortfall of £9m, provided that the proposals
receive the whole-hearted support of Congregation and that the
potential benefactor is content with the overall plans and design
of
the buildings of which his contribution will form part. Mr Said
has
also indicated his willingness, if the benefaction proceeds, to
make
an interest-free loan to cover a proportion of any shortfall (not
more than £5m on funding for the building itself) for a
period
of not more than two-and-a-half years from the completion of the
building, thus allowing the University five years in all to raise
that part of the matching funding. The Development Office is
confident that on this timescale it will be able to raise the
balance
of funding required.

The sources from which funds for posts have been raised to date
have
been bodies such as the Peter Moores Foundation, the American
Standard Company and The Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation
Company, which would not have made funds available for other
activities within the University. The same is true of Mr Said's
benefaction and is likely to be true of the sources from which
the
balance of matching funding will be raised. These bodies by their
generous benefactions have recognised and endorsed the
University's
intention to create a world-class school.

resolution



Said Business School
Foundation

At present, whilst the original deed of trust governing the Wafic
Rida Said Business School Foundation continues to be registered
with
the Charities Commission, it has lapsed since the conditions upon
which it was based, for example the availability of the Mansfield
Road site, have not been fulfilled. A new deed of trust for a new
foundation, to be named the Said Business School Foundation,
would have to be drafted in the event that Congregation approved
the special resolution. The decree set out below, however,
encapsulates the
main
terms of what would be included in the trust deed. Council and
the
General Board wish to draw to Congregation's attention the
decision
by Mr Said and his fellow trustees to change the composition of
the
foundation's board of trustees from six appointed by the
benefactor
and four appointed by the University to four each appointed by
the
benefactor and the University with two further trustees being
appointed entirely independently by eminent business- or
finance-related bodies. It was always Mr Said's intention that
there
should be a majority of trustees from the external world and he
has
therefore proposed the new breakdown of the composition of the
board
as a means of maintaining this objective. At the same time, this
composition will make clear that he does not wish, and has never
wished, to control the foundation. Mr
Said
was also concerned by suggestions that the foundation could
interfere
in the academic direction and day-to-day management of the
school,
and he and his trustees have therefore proposed an explicit
disclaimer of this intention in the decree (clause 2).

In addition, in the new trust deed the purposes of the founder
would
be expressed as

(a) to further the advancement of world-class
management
education in Britain by the development of a Business School at
Oxford University;

(b) to promote a genuine partnership between business
and
business schools with a view to helping to improve Britain's
economic
performance; and

(c) to recognise the welcome extended to the founder
in
Britain over many years and his attachment to the British people.

The principal charitable object of the foundation would be the
development, promotion, and support of the Said Business School
and
the design, building, and maintenance of a building or buildings
for
the school. The powers of the trustees are expected to be:

(a) to invest trust moneys, including the power to
appoint managers in respect of the foundation's investments;

(b) to promote support for the school;

(c)
with the consent of the Director of the school, to make grants
in
support of the school;

(d) to solicit and accept donations or other
financial
assistance in co-ordination with the University;

(e) to appoint committees from time to time, provided
that these committees include at least one trustee member, that
their
proceedings are reported promptly to the board, and that they
cannot
incur expenditure without a budget which has been approved by the
board;

(f) to appoint advisers and agents;

(g) to open and maintain accounts at banks;

( h) to insure buildings which are part of the
Foundation
Fund;

(i) to build, enlarge, or improve buildings subject to the
approval of the University in so far as the requirements of the
school are concerned;

(j) to sell or lease land;

(k) to accept, purchase, or lease premises for
offices;

(l) to permit buildings to be used by the University
for
the school;

(m) to provide for indemnity insurance for the
trustees;

(n) to do all such other lawful things as shall further the
charitable objects.

There will also be provision for such points of detail as
provision
for proxies, the fact that decisions of the board and the
Buildings
Committee will be made by a simple majority (in the case of the
Buildings Committee provided that both the Vice-Chancellor and
the
benefactor assent to the decision of the majority), and
provisions
for amendments to the trust deed other than as provided for in
clause
18 of the decree (i.e. that these may be made by
four-fifths of
the trustees). One crucial role of the Foundation's Buildings
Committee will be to ensure that the project keeps within budget.

Return to list of contents of the
resolution



The directorship of the school

The position regarding the appointment of the Director is set out
in
clause 13 of the decree. Council and the General Board have
endorsed
these arrangements and are confident that they will work
satisfactorily. As explained above, the board of the foundation
would
consist of four representatives of the University, four
representatives of the benefactor (expected to be persons of
eminence
in the world of business, finance or business studies), and two
independent members of eminence in the world of business or
finance.
The University would not in any case wish to appoint a director
of
its business school who would not command the whole-hearted
support
of such a board.

Return to list of contents of the
resolution



The Committee for the School and its
Council

Clause 15 of the decree broadly reflects the current
provisions
in Ch. III, Sect. LIII (Statutes, 1995, pp. 301--3)
governing the composition of the Committee for the School and the
proportion of members of the committee to be elected by the
Council,
save that it amends the provision for persons to be elected or
co-opted `who need not be members of Congregation' to provide
explicitly that in general they should not be members but persons
from
outside
the University drawn from appropriate walks of life. It is
recognised
that the University must be in a position to amend its own
legislation as and when appropriate, and it is envisaged that
this
will be achieved through the operation of clause 18 of the draft
decree.

Return to list of contents of the
resolution



Salaries of members of academic staff
of
the school

Council and the General Board are fully aware of concerns which
have
been expressed in respect of possible levels of salary of members
of
academic staff within the school in comparison with other
academic
staff of the University. They also recognise a number of concerns
generally about the University's current salary structures and
the
effects of these on recruitment, concerns which may need to be
addressed irrespective of developments in Management Studies. At
the
same time the General Board has had to address unique problems
of
recruitment, even greater than those experienced in other
disciplines, in certain specific areas (e.g. Finance) within
Management Studies. The General Board and Council have therefore
agreed arrangements, under which some enhancement will be
possible,
through the voluntary surrender of some proportion of the
entitlement
to up to 30 days' consultancy and the assumption of additional
teaching duties. These arrangements will be operated under the
Board's aegis through a small joint working party of
representatives
of the Board and the school and on the basis that each case will
be
brought individually to the Board for consideration. (The school
itself is anxious in so far as possible to work within the
existing
framework of academic appointments, and these arrangements would
be
operable only when an attempt to fill a post on standard
university
terms had been made and had proved to be unsuccessful.)

Return to list of contents of the
resolution



Summary

Following discussion within the University of the reports written
by
the committees chaired respectively by Sir Claus Moser and Mr
Donald
Hay, it has been the University's intention since 1990 to embark
on a
major expansion of Management Studies. From the outset it has
been
clear that significant external funding would be required to
support
this expansion, and the target under the Campaign for Oxford was
set
at £40m. These plans have evolved, but the total cost of the
development has changed little in broad terms. The proposals
currently before Congregation reflect these intentions.

The school aims to establish itself quickly as a world-class
institution ranking with the best schools in Europe and the
United
States. Most of the leading schools in Europe are stand-alone
institutions, a fact which creates a particular opportunity for
Oxford to develop a school which, like some American
institutions, is
closely integrated into a major university.

One of the primary goals of the school is to make a research
contribution of international distinction. Management Studies is
the
study of the structure of organisations, the behaviour of people
in
those organisations and their interaction with the rest of
society.
It is concerned with the way in which organisations can be best
arranged to achieve the goals of society and how they respond to
its
changing needs and technological opportunities. Its focus is on
the
workings of some of the most important institutions of the late
twentieth century analogous to scholarly interest in the church,
the
monarchy and government in previous generations. There are plans
for
major research initiatives in international business and the
management of technology which will be undertaken jointly with
Economics, Politics, Engineering, and other Sciences. Its
existing
undergraduate programmes involve joint degrees with Engineering
and
Economics, and there are plans to develop Management as a
component
of other joint degrees.

The new MBA admitted its first students in 1996 and these are at
present accommodated in temporary premises in the Radcliffe
Infirmary. The first year's programme, with 49 students of high
academic calibre recruited from 22 countries and now members of
23
colleges, draws on not only the existing Management Studies
Faculty
but also lecturers in Economics, Law, Politics, and Science.
Eleven
colleges now have fellows in Management Studies and a further
four
have college lecturers.

The development of the school will be situated physically and
intellectually in the heart of the University. It will act as a
focal
point in bringing together the academic expertise of the
University
as a whole with business and with government. By educating the
international business leaders of the next century it will enable
Oxford to maintain and develop the University's influential role
in
public affairs around the world.

Council and the General Board firmly believe that the benefaction
from Mr Said would provide the University with a unique
opportunity
for realising its plans in full and on terms which are fully
acceptable. In the light of the above, Council and the General
Board
ask Congregation to approve the following special resolution.

resolution



Text of Special Resolution (3)

That this House

(a) endorse the development of the School of
Management
Studies, to be renamed the Said Business School in the event of

broad
terms and conditions set out in the explanatory note to this
resolution and in the decree published with this resolution;

(b) agree, subject to the acquisition by the
University
of the freehold of the site, to allocate a site of up to 2.4

finance-related body or its President or Chairman, the nominating
body or nominating person to be decided by the Trustees and to
remain constant as far as circumstances permit;

(5)--(7) three representatives of the University to be
appointed
by the Vice-Chancellor after consultation with Council;

(8)--(10) three representatives to be appointed by the
Benefactor.

The Chairman of the Trustees, who shall have no casting vote,
will be
elected by the Trustees from among their number to serve for two
years and shall be eligible for re-election.

4. With the exception of the Benefactor no person shall
become or
remain a Trustee after reaching the age of 75 years. The person
or
body appointing any Trustee (or his, her or its successor in
title)
shall have power from time to time to revoke the appointment with
immediate effect and shall have power to make new appointments
of
Trustees, subject to the provisions of cl. 3, in place of
Trustees
who were appointed by him, her or it and who have died, retired
or
whose appointment has been revoked. Any Trustee who desires to
retire
may do so two months after giving to the other Trustees notice
in
writing of such desire.

5. The quorum for meetings of the Trustees shall be six
Trustees,
including at least two of the Trustees referred to in cl. 3(1),
(5)--(7) and at least two of the Trustees referred to in cl.
3(2),
(8)--(10).

6. The Trustees shall be responsible for the construction of
a
building for the School. They shall acquire and hold the adjacent
site as Trustees of the Foundation and shall fulfil their
responsibilities under the trust deed of the Foundation.

7. There shall be a Buildings Committee of the Board of
Trustees
which shall supervise generally and shall oversee the
construction of
the building of the School on the site. The Buildings Committee
shall
be composed as follows:

(1) the Vice-Chancellor;

(2) the Benefactor;

(3) one member to be appointed by the Vice-Chancellor after
consultation with Council with the approval of the Benefactor,
such
approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed; and

(4) one member to be appointed by the Benefactor with the
approval
of the Vice-Chancellor after consultation with Council, such
approval
not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

The quorum for meetings of the Buildings Committee shall be all
four
members.

8. The University shall grant the Said Business
School
Foundation a 299-year lease of the site for the building for the
School and of the building to be erected on the site. For as long
as
the building is used for the School or such other use as may be
agreed between the University and the Foundation the University
will
charge the Foundation a peppercorn rent for the lease.

9. If during the period of the lease for any reason after the
construction and furnishing of the building have been completed
the
building shall cease for a continuous period of twelve months to
be
used exclusively as the School, then either

(a) the University and the Said Business
School Foundation will agree an alternative use for the building;
or,
if this is not possible,

(b) the Foundation will offer
the
University the option to buy the lease for a consideration equal
to
the open market value at that time of the lease, less the
proportion
to the original cost of the building and the site represented by
funding raised from sources other than the Foundation or the
Benefactor, plus VAT if applicable.

The open market value assumes

(i) a willing seller;

(ii) a willing buyer;

(iii) that there had been a reasonable period for the proper
marketing of the lease;

(iv) that no account is taken of any additional bid by a
purchaser
with a special interest;

(v) that there is no restriction on the assignment of the
lease;

(vi) that the use of the site and building is not limited to
the
use as a Business School.

The open market value shall be determined by agreement between
a
valuer appointed by the University and a valuer appointed by the
Foundation within six months from the date of cessation and if
not so
agreed within that time shall be determined by an arbitrator,
such
arbitrator to be nominated (in the absence of agreement) by the
President for the time being of the Royal Institution of
Chartered
Surveyors and the arbitration to be conducted in accordance with
the
Arbitration Acts 1950 and 1979 or any statutory modification or
re-enactment thereof for the time being in force.

If neither (a) nor (b) above is agreed within
one
year, then the Foundation will be free for the remainder of the
lease
to use the building for whatever purpose it wishes, including an
assignment of the lease, at such rent, if any, as may be agreed
between the University and the Foundation.

10. The benefaction is conditional on planning permission for
the
building on the main site being granted, vacant possession of the
entire site being obtained, and the problem of the routing of
services away from the site being resolved to the satisfaction
of the Foundation. If these conditions are not met within
one
year of the date of this decree, then the Foundation will sell,
and
the University will buy, the adjacent site for the amount for
which
the Foundation purchased it plus VAT if applicable.

11. If it ever transpires that the School will not need the
adjacent
site for expansion purposes and the Foundation decides to sell
the
adjacent site, the University will be given the right of first
refusal on the purchase of this land.

12. For as long as the building is used for the School or such
other
use as may be agreed between the University and the Foundation
the
University will be responsible for

(a) insuring the building on behalf of the Foundation
on
a full reinstatement basis;

(b) maintaining the structure, repair and decoration
of
the building to a standard consistent with its use as a
pre-eminent
world-class business school;

(c) the operation and use of the building according
to
current Health and Safety legislation and the University's
policies
for such buildings;

(d) upgrading the building to meet changes in
legislation.

13. The Directorship of the School, which shall be called the
Peter
Moores Directorship, shall be held for a period of five years and
may
be renewed for periods of five years thereafter. The appointment
of
the Director shall be made by Council, on the recommendation of
the
General Board, after consultation with the Peter Moores
Foundation
and with the approval of the Said Business School
Foundation, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld.

14. The income from non-publicly funded courses offered by the
School
will be paid into the School budget for the support of its
activities. Income from research grants and contracts will be
treated
in the same way. The income so received by the School will be
used
exclusively for the support of the School's activities except
that
the University may deduct in any year up to 22 per cent (or such
other percentage as may be agreed from time to time between the
University and the Foundation, such agreement not to be
unreasonably
withheld) of the income so paid into the School's budget to meet
the
reasonable costs of support provided from the central facilities
of
the University to the School in respect of services used by the
School such as are illustrated in (a)--(d)
below:

(a) use of central academic facilities such as the
Bodleian Library, the faculty libraries, computing services and
the
language centre and any other relevant facilities;

(b) the use of the central services for the payment
of
bills, the operation of the payroll and the organisation of
superannuation accounting and of personnel services;

(c) the use of central administrative services such
as
committee servicing, examination arrangements and the award of
degrees; and

(d) the use of building and maintenance services.

15. Notwithstanding the provisions of Ch. III, Sect. LIII, not
more
than one-third or less than one-fourth of the members of the
Committee for the School (currently known as the Committee for
the
School of Management Studies) will be elected by the Council for
Business Studies (currently known as the Council for Management
Studies) (`the Council') from amongst persons from industry,
finance,
government, public service, and sponsors of the School, such
persons
not generally being members of Congregation.

16. The Benefactor shall be entitled to appoint, to one of the
places
identified in cl. 15, one member of the Committee for the School.

17. The Benefactor shall be entitled to appoint one member to
the
Council.

18. This decree may be modified and/or replaced in whole or
in
part
by further decrees or statutes, provided that the Trustees of the
Said Business School Foundation shall first have
approved
the modification or replacement,

(a) in the case of cll. 1--14 and cll. 16--18 by a
four-fifths majority; and

(b) in the case of cl. 15 by a simple majority.

An award from the McDonnell--Pew Program in Cognitive
Neuroscience, based in the United States of America, has
funded the establishment of a Centre for Cognitive
Neuroscience at the University. It started in 1990 and is
currently funded until the end of 1997. The centre links
work on many aspects of brain research relevant to human
cognition in several departments at Oxford and other
institutions.

The McDonnell--Pew Centre encourages work in all
areas of cognitive neuroscience across all relevant

    which are separately advertised from time time;
  • Visiting fellowships, to contribute to the costs of
    short-term visits from distinguished researchers from
    overseas;
  • Seminar programme;
  • Workshops, for the planning of collaborative
    research;
  • Network grants, to cover the costs of exchange visits
    for collaboration with laboratories elsewhere in the
    world, especially in Europe and North America;
  • Research support fund, providing small grants for
    pilot projects, experience in new techniques, including
    functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, etc.;
  • Travel fund, especially for costs of visits to other
    laboratories or to training courses to learn new
    techniques.
