OXFORD ACADEMIC TRAVEL SCHEME
(OATS)

The Oxford Academic Travel Scheme (OATS) seeks to raise
the profile of the University around the world by
matching groups of alumni and friends of Oxford with
academics who are willing to incorporate speaking or
social engagements within overseas travel.

OATS was established in 1991 by the External
Relations Office in response to the growing number of
invitations extended to current Oxford academics by
alumni groups abroad, including Oxford and Cambridge
clubs and the Oxford Society branches. The scheme
involves identifying travelling academics who are willing
to give a talk or lecture about current Oxford
developments or attend a reception which will link them
to alumni keen to hear of the latest University news.

The University has now agreed to allocate a small
travel grant to those taking part in the scheme.
Typically, this might amount to a sum between £50
and £100 to pay the marginal costs of an additional
overnight stay to deliver the talk, or travel between the
original destination and where the alumni group is based.
However, the small panel of the International Committee,
which will consider awards, has an open mind on the level
of support to be offered. In addition, OATS is now
widening its remit and will seek to support alumni groups
with speakers even if no Oxford visitor has been
identified.

OATS is now compiling its programme for the coming
academic year. Any member of staff who will be travelling
overseas during 1999–2000 (or indeed for subsequent
years), willing to participate in the scheme, should
complete an OATS form, available from the External
Relations Office (telephone: (2)78113), and return it
with a brief curriculum vitae (of no more
than one side of A4) to Wendy Fuggles, Public Relations
Officer, External Relations Office, Oxenford House,
Magdalen Street, Oxford. This information will then be
forwarded to the relevant overseas contacts, who will be
asked to advise directly whether or not they are able to
accept the offer. (The brief curriculum vitae is useful as the alumni group may use it as
part of the publicity for the event.)

EDUCATIONAL RECORDING AGENCY


Survey of off-air recording

This notice is to inform members of the University
about a survey of educational recordings in which the
University is obliged to participate this year, and to
request co-operation in collecting the necessary
information.

The University (including its constituent colleges)
is covered by an Educational Recording Agency (ERA)
Licence to record radio and television broadcasts and
cable programmes for educational use, without infringing
copyright. The University pays about £24,000 per
annum for this licence.

It is a condition of the licence that institutions
may be required to maintain for a specified period of
time details of radio and television recordings made
under the licence and to return this information to the
ERA. Oxford University has been selected to take part in
ERA's survey during the period 1 September 1998
to 31 August 1999
and the University is
therefore asking all staff for assistance in collating
the information required.

In each department and college, and some faculty
offices, an individual has been nominated as the local
co-ordinator for the survey. All staff are asked to give
details to the most appropriate co-ordinator of all
recordings of radio and television programmes which they
make for educational purposes whether at home, in the
University, or elsewhere. The information required is the
title, date, and channel of the programme, and the
location where the recording was made. As statistics have
to be returned by the University at the end of every
month, it is important that a co- ordinator is informed
as soon as possible after a recording is made.

The identity of the local co-ordinator should be
publicised in each department, college, and (where
appropriate) faculty office. If it is not clear, the
departmental administrator, senior tutor, or faculty
office administrator should be able to identify the co-
ordinator. In cases of difficulty, details of recordings
can be passed instead to the University's central
co-ordinator, Miss Catherine Long, at the ETRC
(telephone: (2)70529, e-mail:
catherine.long@etrc.ox.ac.uk). It is, of course,
necessary to pass information about recordings only to
one co-ordinator; there is no need, for example, to
inform both a college co-ordinator and a faculty
co-ordinator but simply the one which is most convenient.

Please note that ERA are likely to visit the
University at some stage during the survey period and to
monitor the information returned against recordings held
by the University. It is therefore important that the
required information is collected carefully and that
recordings are available for inspection if necessary. It
is also important to note the requirement (which is
general and not just for the period of the survey) that
each recording should be labelled with the date and time,
and with the statement that `This recording is to be used
only for educational purposes'.

It is hoped that the survey will not cause too much
inconvenience, and the full co-operation of members of
the University would be appreciated.

CIRCULATION OF FLYSHEETS

Ten or more members of Congregation may arrange to have a
flysheet circulated with the Gazette
(a) on matters before Congregation, or
Convocation in regard to the election of the Professor of
Poetry, or (b) relating to matters of general
interest to the University, subject to the following
general conditions:

(i) no flysheet will be circulated which in the
opinion of the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors might be
defamatory or otherwise illegal;

(ii) the right is reserved on behalf of the
University and its employees, without prior consultation
with the signatories, to publish an apology in respect of
any statement in a flysheet which is complained of as
defamatory or otherwise illegal (whether or not the
statement can be shown to be true);

(iii) the signatories shall jointly and severally
indemnify the University and its employees against any
costs or damages payable in respect of their flysheet
and, unless a Queen's Counsel (to be mutually agreed on
by the signatories and the University) shall advise
within four months of the making of any claim in respect
of a flysheet that any proceedings could be contested
with the probability of success, such damages shall
include any sum paid by the University in settlement of
any claim arising out of the flysheet;

(iv) the flysheet shall consist of one leaf only
(though text may appear on both sides of the leaf); the
text shall include the name and college or department of
each of the signatories;

(v) a copy of the text of the flysheet shall be
delivered to the

Registrar before 10 a.m. on the Monday of the week in
which circulation is desired; it shall be accompanied by
an indemnity in accordance with condition (iii) above
drawn up on a form obtainable from the Registrar and
signed by each of the signatories of the flysheet; the
Registrar shall be informed at the same time which of the
signatories is to be notified whether the Vice-Chancellor
and Proctors have authorised circulation;

(vi) the Registrar shall arrange for the production
by the University Press of copies of a flysheet the
circulation of which has been duly authorised.

Though every effort will be made to circulate on
the day desired flysheets so received, it must be
understood that this cannot be guaranteed.

(a) Matters before Congregation or
Convocation

If the flysheet deals with a matter that is a formal
agendum for Congregation, or for Convocation in regard to
the election of the Professor of Poetry, or the subject
of a report published in the Gazette, the
production costs will be met from university funds.

(b) Matters of general interest to the
University

If the flysheet deals with a matter that is not a formal
agendum for Congregation or the subject of a report
published in the Gazette, the
Vice-Chancellor will decide whether it is of sufficient
general interest to warrant circulation with the
Gazette; the production costs for such a
flysheet will be the responsibility of the signatories.

Oxford University Student Union

The Executive and the Graduate Committee of the Oxford
University Student Union may have flysheets circulated
with the Gazette under the arrangements and
subject to the conditions set out above, provided that:

(1) the number of names to be included on the
flysheet under condition (iv) shall be not less than a
majority of the total number of members of the Executive
or the Graduate Committee of OUSU, as the case may be,
and each of the persons named shall sign the indemnity
required under condition (v);

(2) the maximum number of flysheets to be
circulated as of right, whether on matters before
Congregation (to be paid for by the University) or on
matters of general interest to the University (to be paid
for by OUSU and to be subject to the Vice-Chancellor's
decision as prescribed under (b) above) shall be
three per term for each of these bodies, save that the
Vice-Chancellor shall have discretion to permit further
flysheets.

Subject to proviso (1) above, the Executive and the
Graduate Committee of OUSU may also support flysheets
signed by not less than ten members of Congregation.

CLUBS COMMITTEE


Annual Report for 1997--8

The Clubs Committee has continued its work of providing
support and assistance for the wide range of student
clubs, societies, and publications which choose to
register with the Proctors in accordance with Rules
Committee regulations. This support is customarily
directed mainly at non-sports organisations, since sports
clubs and teams have been able to look to the Committee
for Sport and Senior Treasurers' Committee. However,
sports clubs have equal access to the Clubs Committee
services and facilities at 13 Bevington Road, as well as
access to the minibus hire scheme which is run by the
Clubs Committee in collaboration with the Committee for
Sport. During 1997--8, approximately 180 non-sports clubs
and ninety sports clubs were registered with the
Proctors.

In addition to its grant of £12,697 from the
Committee for the Council Departments in 1997--8, the
Clubs Committee received £13,181 from colleges and
other societies (the per-caput levy having been
increased, at its request, to £0.84 in order to help
to fund a new post of part-time Clubs Officer). Income of
£3,291 was obtained from secretarial services
(mainly photocopying) and rents at the Bevington Road
premises. The funds available to the committee supported
its activities in the following areas, consistent with
usual practice and approved plans.

Staffing support. Following a short
hand-over period in October 1997, the long-serving Clubs
Committee Secretary retired from the University and was
succeeded by a replacement secretary also working
part-time, in ten-week blocks associated with Full Term.
In addition to providing secretarial services on request
to student clubs and societies, the secretary helps with
the day- to-day running of the Bevington Road premises
and (as a new activity) deals with the clubs' termly
reregistration exercise. The second post at 13 Bevington
Road, that of Clubs Officer, is filled on a part-time
basis throughout the year. Since the present Clubs
Officer was appointed in February 1998, considerable
advances have been made in processing and advising on the
termly accounts which student treasurers are required to
submit as part of the reregistration exercise, in
administering the minibus hire scheme, and in providing
`wardenship' for the Clubs Committee premises which
otherwise would be unstaffed during the vacations.

Clubs Committee premises. In addition to
the Clubs Committee's administrative offices, the
premises at 13 Bevington Road provide rooms and storage
space made available for clubs and societies to rent at
competitive rates. Some fifteen organisations made use of
these facilities, which are particularly important for
organisations like charities and publications that rely
on having a long-term base from which to operate.

Non-premises support costs. These mainly
comprise the running costs for the Clubs Committee
Office, including the photocopying service which is
available cheaply to registered clubs and societies.

Direct financial support. The Clubs
Committee continued to operate its scheme of grants,
loans, and underwriting guarantees, allocated in termly
exercises by the Clubs Subcommittee (up to £200) and
by the main committee. Although £6K was budgeted in
1997--8 for this purpose, net expenditure (exclusive of
repaid loans) was only one-third of this total; the
committee will be considering in 1998--9 whether the
scheme should be revised and will survey clubs' views on
this matter. Particularly important are the start-up
grants (£100 maximum) to help newly registered clubs
to become established; a number of larger awards were
also made, e.g. to the OU Space and Astronomical Society
for the refurbishment of its observatory building.

Minibus hire scheme. Supported by the
recruitment of the Clubs Officer, this important safety
scheme in the third year of operation provided an element
of driver assessment/training and gave clubs access to
economical, good- quality vehicles hired from a local
company. Prices to clubs were kept low because vehicles
are hired on the University's insurance. The driver
assessment/training sessions were given by professionals;
although attendance by student drivers was voluntary,
clubs and societies which used certified drivers for
their minibuses could reclaim part of the hire fee from
the Clubs Committee. The scheme proved particularly
popular with sports clubs and teams, which accounted for
60 per cent of the total annual hires. The committee is
pleased to report that there were no minibus accidents
involving personal injury during the year. The committee
continued to monitor the running of the scheme, e.g. in
the light of changing regulations on the licensing of
minibus drivers; from 1998--9, the scheme is being
extended to include `people carrier' vehicles as well as
minibuses.

The committee's expenditure in 1997--8 was less than
budgeted, resulting in a surplus of £8,679 for the
year. Added to the accumulated balance on its account,
this produced a total of £14,866 to carry forward to
1998--9 (when, however, the committee will need to meet
exceptional capital expenditure on new computers and
building-work costs).

Under the Assessor's chairmanship, the committee and its
Clubs Subcommittee each met once a term. A small
management committee for the 13 Bevington Road premises
also met twice. The Clubs Committee relies heavily on the
enthusiasm and contribution made by the student members
in determining how best to support the clubs, societies,
and publications which are such an important part of
university life. The committee also acknowledges with
gratitude the work of Dr Christopher Phelps (St Edmund
Hall), who retired from membership after many years'
service as a representative of the Conference of
Colleges.

EXAMINATION SCHOOLS


Accommodation for Lectures

Trinity Term 1999

The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if
Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture
at the Schools in Trinity Term 1999 could inform the Clerk of the
Schools at the end of the present term. It is necessary to know
whether a room suitable for an audience of more than one hundred
persons is required; only the three large writing©schools will
accommodate more than that number.

Leave for the use of rooms for lectures will expire at the
end
of the fourth week of Trinity Term.

Afternoon lectures should normally finish by 6 p.m.

Attention is drawn to the fact that overhead projection
equipment and 35©mm projectors are available. When these
facilities are required the Clerk of the Schools should be
notified in advance.
