HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL


Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 19
November.

Decree (1): Composition of divisions and Divisional Boards, and
appointment of heads of division

Explanatory note

In consequence of the approval by Congregation on 29 June of the
statute setting up the University's new governance structures from
Michaelmas Term 2000, there has been further consultation between
Council, the General Board, and faculty boards on the details of the
composition of the Divisional Boards and on the arrangements for the
appointment of the heads of the new divisions, which, together with
the composition of the divisions themselves, the new statute requires
to be determined by Council by decree (see the new Tit. V, Sect. I,
cll. 3 and 4 and Sect. II, cl. 3, Supplement (1) to
Gazette No. 4513, 2 June 1999, p. 1328). There is now
general agreement on these matters, and Council has made the
following decree which formally determines them.

The need to define the divisional constituencies by reference to the
current sub-units (faculties, sub-faculties, departments, etc.)
should not be taken to imply any expectation that these sub-units
will necessarily continue in their present form after
divisionalisation. The aim of the present decree is to establish the
basic structure under which the first elections to the Divisional
Boards can be held and the boards begin their work; further
legislation will be needed in due course to set out the boards' full
responsibilities, and there are likely also to have to be future
changes in the light of experience.

240), delete Sectt. IV--V, concerning the General Board and its

provisions of § 1, cl. 5 (14) and § 4 of this section,
shall be held annually in Trinity Term, and on such other occasions
as may be necessary to fill casual vacancies, on days to be fixed by
the Vice-Chancellor. The Secretary of Faculties and Academic
Registrar shall give, in the University Gazette, at
least thirty-five days' notice of the day of election, and shall at
the same time give notice of the constituencies by and from among
which the members are to be elected, of the number of vacancies in
each constituency, and of the latest days on which nominations of
candidates must be delivered at the University Offices.

2. No candidate shall be deemed to be duly nominated unless he or
she shall have been nominated in writing twenty-three clear days
beforehand by two persons qualified under the provisions of
sub-section 1 of this section to vote for his or her election, or
eight clear days beforehand by six such persons, except in the case
of elections to the Medical Sciences Board for which nominations by
six such persons shall be submitted fourteen clear days before the
election.

3. All nominations, signed and dated, shall be delivered at the
University Offices within the times prescribed, and nominations by
two persons shall be published by the Secretary of Faculties and
Academic Registrar in the University Gazette as soon as
may be, provided that no nomination shall be so published before the
expiration of a week from the day on which notice was given of the
election.

4. If the number of candidates duly nominated for election as
members of any board shall not exceed the number of places to be
filled on that board, or if a candidate withdraws or candidates
withdraw after having been duly nominated so as to leave such number,
the Secretary of Faculties and Academic Registrar on the day
appointed for the election shall declare the candidates nominated,
and not having withdrawn, to be duly elected as members of the board.

5. If the number of candidates duly nominated for election to any
board, and not having withdrawn, shall exceed the number of places to
be filled on that board, the procedure of the election shall be as
follows:

(1) the Secretary of Faculties and Academic Registrar shall send
to every elector, not later than the fourth day before the day fixed
for the election, a voting paper which shall list the names of those
nominated and on which shall be specified the latest time by which,
after having been signed by the voter, it may be received at the
University Offices; provided that in the case of elections to the
Medical Sciences Board voting papers shall be sent to every elector
not later than the eighth day before the day fixed for the election.

(2) An election shall not be deemed to be invalid owing to
misdirection or non-receipt of any voting paper.

(3) The Secretary of Faculties and Academic Registrar shall be
responsible for the counting of the votes, but the Vice-Chancellor
shall decide on the validity of any vote which, in the opinion of the
Secretary of Faculties and Academic Registrar, is in doubt.

(4) If two or more candidates have received an equal number of
votes they shall be placed in order of seniority in academic
standing.

(5) The result of the election shall be published in the
University Gazette.

6. If at the time of election there shall be a greater number of
vacancies than the number of candidates nominated, and not having
withdrawn, the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors jointly shall have power
to nominate a candidate for each vacancy remaining to be filled, and
such candidates shall then be declared to be duly elected.

7. In any election in which vacancies are to be filled for
periods of different length, the elected candidates shall hold office
so that the tenure of those who receive more votes shall be longer
than that of those who receive fewer votes; but if the election is
uncontested or if two candidates receive the same number of votes,
the candidate senior in academic standing shall hold office for the
longer period.

8. If in any election a person is simultaneously elected to fill
more than one vacancy, that person shall select the vacancy which he
or
she shall be deemed to have been elected to fill, and the other
vacancy shall be filled by the candidate for that vacancy who has
received the next highest number of votes. If there is no such other
candidate, the provisions of clause 6 above shall be applied to the
filling of the other vacancy.

9. The elections to the Divisional Boards by the Conference of
Colleges shall be held in such manner as the Conference shall
determine.

10. The elections to the Social Sciences Board under the
provisions of § 1, cl. 5 (14) of this section shall be held in
such manner as the electors shall jointly determine.

to all the members of the board fourteen days at least before the day

decree shall, as far as possible, be appointed in advance of that
date so as to be in a position to take up their responsibilities
immediately, and that their initial periods of appointment shall be
so varied as to procure a regular rotation of subsequent
appointments; and provided also that the first selection committees
for the heads of division shall in each case comprise the
Vice-Chancellor and six or, at Council's discretion, seven other

consultation with the General Board and with the faculty boards and

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

or other institution of higher learning.

Applications must be received by the Secretary to the Board of
Management, Michael Foster Memorial Scholarship, International Office,

graduates of Oxford and Cambridge Universities (who need not have
graduated at the time of application). Four awards are available for the
academic year 2000–1. The scholarships are awarded for study
leading to postgraduate diplomas conferred by the University of
Brussels. The value of the awards will be at least 540,000 Belgian francs;
fees are also paid for by the Foundation. Candidates must have a good
knowledge of spoken and written French.

The scholarships are of particular interest to students who wish
to study law, economics, or political science with an emphasis on the
European Union. The EU institutions are situated near the Institute of
European Studies of the University of Brussels, and students are able
to use their research facilities and to meet prominent people within the
Commission. The Institute also organises expeditions to the European
Parliament and to the Court of Justice.

Application forms and further information may be obtained from
the International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford
OX1 2JD (telephone: Oxford

(2)70241). Applications must be submitted
by Tuesday, 4 January.

MICHAEL AND LOUISA VON CLEMM
FOUNDATION INC., CORPUS CHRISTI COLLEGE, AND HARVARD UNIVERSITY


Michael von Clemm Fellowship

Applications are invited for a Michael von Clemm Fellowship for study at
Harvard University during the academic year 2000–1.

The fellowship is open to undergraduates at the University of Oxford
currently entering their final year and also to those who graduated in
1999. It is intended to attract applicants of very high academic calibre
who have the personal qualities likely to conduce to success in a non-
academic career. The successful applicant will spend a year at the
Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences as a Special Student
following a course of study or research of his or her choice (subject to
the availability of tuition or supervision at Harvard). The fellowship is
not intended for those wishing to study vocational subjects, such as
Business Administration or Law.

The fellowship will meet the costs of all tuition at Harvard as well
as travel between Boston and the UK and will provide an allowance
sufficient to cover the costs of living at Harvard.

Those wishing to be considered should write to the College
Secretary, Corpus Christi College, Oxford OX1 4JF, asking for further
particulars and an application form, together with a copy of the
information for referees. It is the responsibility of applicants to ask
three referees to write directly to the same address. Completed
application forms and references must reach the College Secretary not
later than 11 December. Late or incomplete applications will not be
considered. It is expected that selected candidates will be interviewed
during the week beginning 10 January.

WOLFSON COLLEGE


Research Fellowships 2000

Wolfson College proposes to elect up to three non-stipendiary Research
Fellows, if candidates of sufficient merit present themselves, without limitation
of subject, for four years in the first instance (renewable up to a total of
seven years), from 1 October 2000 (or from 1 April 2000 by arrangement).

Research Fellowships are intended for those whose careers are progressing to
a point where they are becoming established scholars in their field. Candidates
should normally be under forty years of age at the time of appointment (1
October 2000). Applications from candidates under the age of thirty are
discouraged, since it is very unlikely that they will have acquired sufficient
experience and seniority (and for whom Junior Research Fellowships are
usually more appropriate—to be advertised in January). It is a condition
that fellows should be engaged in research in Oxford.

Applications, typed or clearly printed, should include the following: a
completed application form (see below);
a curriculum vitae; a list of publications; full details of the
candidate's current status or position in Oxford, and
expected duration of the position; a research programme; and the names of
three referees.

Candidates should themselves write directly to their referees, asking them
without further request to send a confidential reference to the President's
Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD (fax: Oxford (2)74136), by the
closing date of Tuesday, 4 January.

Application forms are available from the President's Secretary. Applicants
should apply in person or send a self-addressed envelope.

The timetable is as follows: proposals and all supporting documentation should
reach the President's Secretary by the closing date of Tuesday, 4 January;
short-listed candidates will be notified in the week beginning Monday, 17
January; interviews will be held in the morning of Friday, 11 February (an
alternative date is unlikely to be possible).

Recommendations for election to Research Fellowships are subject to governing
body approval, and successful candidates will be notified after the governing
body meeting in mid-March.
