HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL 2 March

Council has made the following decrees, to come into
effect on 20 March.

List of the decrees:

section



Decree (1): Exclusion of
self-nomination at elections in Convocation

Explanatory note

Council has been advised that the natural construction of
the decree governing elections in Convocation excludes
self-nomination. Council considers self-nomination by
candidates to be undesirable, and in order to make the
exclusion explicit has made the following decree
clarifying the position. It is also promoting a statute
to make similar provision in the case of elections in
Congregation (see `University Agenda' below).

Text of Decree (1)

In Ch. I, Sect. VI, cl. 4 (Statutes, 1997,
p. 206), after `members of Congregation' in each of the
two places in which these words occur insert `other than
the candidate'.

section



Decree (2): Electoral Board for
the Dr Lee's Professorship of Chemistry

Explanatory note

The following decree adjusts the composition of the
electoral board for the Dr Lee's Professorship of
Chemistry in order to bring it into line with the
recommendation of the Working Party on Statutory Posts
that nine-member boards should in future include two
electors appointed by the General Board, the additional
place being obtained by a reduction in the number of
electors appointed by the faculty board from four to
three.

Text of Decree (2)

In Ch. VII, Sect. III, § 36, cl. 2
(Statutes, 1997, p. 416), delete items
(5)–(9) and substitute:

`(5), (6) two persons appointed by the General Board;

(7)–(9) three persons appointed by the Board of
the Faculty of Physical Sciences.'

section



Decree (3): Honour School of
Mathematical Sciences

Explanatory note

The decree governing the Second Public Examination makes
provision for candidates, save those in a small number of
honour schools (including the Honour School of
Mathematics), to be examined viva voce. When the new
parallel three- and four-year courses in Mathematics were
introduced in 1994, it was the intention that the new
Honour School of Mathematical Sciences should be added to
the list of honour schools in which candidates are not
examined viva voce; the legislation did not, however,
make appropriate provision. The following decree, made on
the recommendation of the Mathematical Sciences Board and
with the concurrence of the General Board, remedies this
oversight.

Text of Decree (3)

In Examination Decrees, 1997, p. 120, l. 25,
after `except in' insert `the Honour School of
Mathematical Sciences,'.

section



Decree (4): Number of examiners
for the M.Phil. in International Relations and the M.Sc.
in International Relations Research

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
Social Studies Board and with the concurrence of the
General Board, provides for an additional examiner in
each of the taught graduate courses in International
Relations. The purpose of these changes is to take
account of a recommendation from the external examiner
and, in particular, of the examining requirements of the
new M.Sc. in International Relations Research.

Text of Decree (4)

1 In Examination
Decrees
, 1997, p. 1009, l. 7, delete `Three' and
substitute `Four'.

2 Ibid., p. 1011, l. 17, delete
`Three' and substitute `Four'.

Return to List of Contents of this
section



Decree (5): Number of examiners
in the Honour Schools of Theology and of Philosophy and
Theology

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
Theology Board and with the concurrence of the General
Board, allows for the appointment of an additional
external Public Examiner in Theology, the faculty board
having taken the view that it is not reasonable to expect
the existing, single, external examiner in Theology to
act for both the Final Honour School of Theology and the
Joint School of Philosophy and Theology.

Text of Decree (5)

In Examination Decrees, 1997, p. 1040, l.
30, delete `Eight' and substitute `Nine'.

Decree (6): Post of Graduate
Sabbatical Officer at OUSU

Explanatory note

In 1993–4 Council consulted colleges on a proposal
that a sabbatical officer should be appointed at the
Oxford University Student Union (OUSU) to serve the
specific interests and concerns of graduate students. The
great majority of the colleges which replied indicated
that they would in principle be willing to give leave (as
would be required under Tit. XIV, Sect. IV, § 1, cl.
8, Statutes, 1997, pp. 113–14) to their
students to hold such a post, although a number indicated
that they would not be willing to give leave to a student
who would not have completed his or her graduate studies
before taking up the post. It is already the case (under
the statute cited above) that a person wishing to serve
while still reading for a postgraduate degree or diploma
must obtain leave from the faculty board concerned as
well as from his or her college.

OUSU has now put forward detailed proposals for a post of
Graduate Sabbatical Officer, and Council and the General
Board have considered them. OUSU has at present four
full-time, paid officers, the President, the
Vice-President (Finance), the Vice-President (Welfare),
and the Vice-President (Women), who represent both
undergraduates and graduate students. OUSU has a Graduate
Committee (the formerly separate Oxford University
Graduate Union), and at present several of the officers
of that committee share the duties which would constitute
the role of the holder of a full-time, paid office if
there were such a post.

Council and the Board have accepted the case for this
post in principle, on the basis that the post should be
established for a period of three years in the first
instance and the arrangement should be subject to review
at the end of the second year. They note that, while the
existing OUSU full-time officers normally take up their
post after completing their undergraduate course, the
Graduate Sabbatical Officer is expected not infrequently
to serve before completing his or her period of graduate
study (an arrangement which is understood to have worked
satisfactorily at Cambridge for some time). They think
that this is one of the matters which should be carefully
considered in the review at the end of the second
year.

Colleges were also asked in the earlier consultation
whether they would be willing to make a contribution to
the cost of such a new post, and those that were opposed
to doing so were in the (small) majority. Council has
satisfied itself that it would not be feasible for OUSU
to fund the post in addition to making available some of
its very limited accommodation, and has therefore agreed
to make a grant from university funds of £10K per
annum for three years to cover the cost of salary and
overheads.

The following decree permits the post to be established
on the approved basis.

Text of Decree (6)

1 Notwithstanding the provisions of
Tit. XIV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 8
(Statutes, 1997, p. 113), the Oxford
University Student Union may appoint a Graduate
Sabbatical Officer as an additional full-time officer of
the Student Union. Election to and holding of the post of
Graduate Sabbatical Officer shall otherwise be subject to
all the provisions of Tit. XIV, Sect. iv, § 1 as if
it were one of the posts of Vice-President of the Student
Union.

2 Notwithstanding the provisions
of Tit. IV, Sect. iii, cl. 4 (p. 35) and Ch. II, Sect. i,
§ 15, cl. 1 (p. 224), Sect. iii, cll. 2–5 (pp.
238--9), and Sect. v, § 4, cl. 1 (p. 243), the
Graduate Sabbatical Officer shall be the representative
of the Graduate Committee of the Oxford University
Student Union at meetings of the Hebdomadal Council, and
one of the representatives of the Student Union on
Council's Joint Committee with Junior Members and on the
General Board's Joint Committee about Graduate Affairs.

3 This decree shall be effective
for a period of three years from the date on which the
first holder of the post of Graduate Sabbatical Officer
takes up his or her appointment.

M.G. Brock)

reappoint Dr M.G. Brock, Honorary Fellow of Corpus
Christi, Nuffield, and Wolfson Colleges, as a member of

    1 Promulgation of Statutes

    Statute (1): Exclusion of self-nomination at
    elections in Congregation

    Explanatory note

    Council has been advised that the natural construction of
    the statute governing elections in Congregation excludes
    self-nomination. Council considers self-nomination by
    candidates to be undesirable, and in order to make the
    exclusion explicit promotes the following statute
    clarifying the position.

    Statute (2): Change in title of second Professorship
    of Economics

    Explanatory note

    Earlier this term Council promoted legislation
    establishing a second Professorship of Economics in place
    of the Directorship of the Institute of Economics and
    Statistics with effect from 1 October 1998, following the
    resignation of the current Director, Professor S.J.
    Nickell (Gazette, p. 631). It was always the
    intention that the new chair should be named after Sir
    John Hicks, Drummond Professor of Political Economy
    (1952--65) and Nobel Laureate in Economics (1972), but it
    has only recently been possible to contact Sir John's
    sister, as his surviving relative, to obtain her consent
    to the use of his name. This has now been done, and the
    following statute, and the decree to be made by Council
    if the statute is approved, change the title of the
    professorship accordingly.

    (2) WHEREAS it is expedient to name the new
    Professorship of Economics after Sir John Hicks, THE
    UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

    1 The Statute approved by
    Congregation on 24 February 1998 (Gazette,
    pp. 757, 806), establishing a second Professorship of
    Economics, is hereby rescinded.

    PROPOSALS FOR HONORARY DEGREES
    TO BE CONFERRED AT THE ENCAENIA IN 1999, AND FOR DEGREES
    BY DIPLOMA

    Council's Advisory Committee for Degrees by Diploma and
    Encaenia Honorary Degrees gives preliminary consideration
    both to proposals received from members of Congregation
    for the conferment of degrees by diploma upon royal
    personages and heads of state on occasions other than
    Encaenia, and to proposals for the conferment of Encaenia
    honorary degrees. The current membership of the committee
    is: Dr P.A. Slack, Principal of Linacre (Pro-Vice-
    Chancellor, in the chair); Dr A.M. Bowie, Queen's
    (Assessor 1998–9, ex officio); Dr R.
    Goodman, St Antony's (Assessor 1997–8, ex
    officio
    ); Professor J. Griffin, Balliol (Public
    Orator, ex officio); Mr A.B. Atkinson, Warden of
    Nuffield; Professor I.C. Butler, Christ Church; Professor
    R.A. Cowley, Wadham; Professor Sir John Grimley Evans,
    Green College; Professor C.A.R. Hoare, Wolfson; Professor
    S.D. Iversen, Magdalen; Dr J.M. Rawson, Warden of Merton;
    Professor A.J. Ryan, Warden of New College. The committee
    finds it helpful to be able to review all proposals
    together, in a standard format. Members of Congregation
    who wish to make suggestions to the committee about
    honorary degrees to be conferred at the Encaenia in 1999
    are therefore asked to do so on a special proposal form,
    a copy of which will be found printed in this
    Gazette, after `Advertisements' below
    (further copies of the form are also obtainable from Miss
    J.M. Noon at the University Offices, Wellington Square).
    It will be possible to download a copy of the form from
    the Administrative Information
    Web site
    (
    www.admin.ox.ac.uk/encaenia/
    ), though the form must be
    returned as hard copy, under strictly confidential cover,
    to Miss Noon. Completed forms should be returned to her
    not later than Friday, 8 May 1998. There is a special
    form for proposals for degrees by diploma, copies of
    which are available from Miss Noon.

    Members of Congregation wishing to suggest candidates are
    asked in particular to note the following points:

    (a) under Council's standing orders, no
    member of Council or of the advisory committee shall
    forward to that committee or propose directly to Council
    the name of any person for any honorary degree unless he
    or she is prepared personally to recommend that the
    conferment of such a degree be seriously considered;

    (b) while informal soundings within the
    University on any proposal will often be desirable, every
    effort should be made to ensure that publicity is not at
    any stage given to any proposal for the conferment of an
    honorary degree.

    The advisory committee will report to Council early in
    Michaelmas Term, submitting a short-list of candidates
    for further consideration. Council will then decide which
    proposals should be referred to its Committee on Honorary
    Degrees. The final list of proposed honorands, drawn up
    by Council in the light of the latter committee's report,
    will be submitted to Congregation for approval in
    accordance with the requirements of Tit. II, Sectt. vi
    and viii (Statutes, 1997, pp. 14–16).

    WORKING PARTY ON ACCESS

    At the end of Michaelmas Term the Vice-Chancellor set up
    a Working Party on Access to Oxford. The terms of
    reference of the Working Party are as follows:

    (i) to analyse the present composition of the
    undergraduate and postgraduate body of the University;
    and in the light of its findings,

    (ii) to consider the most effective means of ensuring
    a broad diversity of students in terms of social and
    educational background, gender, age, personal
    circumstances, and ethnic, regional, and national origin,
    and the appropriate conditions of successful study of
    such students, having regard always to preservation of
    Oxford's academic standards and particular academic
    purposes; and

    (iii) to report upon other mechanisms by which this
    University might usefully participate in a `learning
    society', having similar regard to its academic standards
    and purposes; and

    (iv) to submit a report, with recommendations, not
    later than the end of Trinity Term 1998, for
    consideration by Council, the General Board, and the
    Conference of Colleges.

    Colleges and faculties are being written to separately
    for their views on a number of access-related matters,
    but any member of the university who would like to
    comment on any aspect of the Working Party's remit is
    most welcome to do so. Comments should be sent to the
    Secretary of the Working Party, Miss Jane Minto, Oxford
    Colleges Admission Office, University Office, Wellington
    Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, by Monday, 18 May.
