2 Promulgation of Statute

Statute: Establishment of a Faculty of Management

Explanatory note

The following statute, and the decree to be made by Council if the statute is approved, which are promoted on the recommendation of the Committee for the School of Management Studies and with the concurrence of the General Board as part of the reorganisation of the school, establish a Faculty of Management, abolish the Committee for the School of Management Studies, which has hitherto functioned in a similar way to a faculty board, establish a Board of the Faculty of Management in its place, and create a fourth Deputy Directorship of the school. The composition of the proposed new faculty board reflects the inclusion of external members in the committee for the school, one of whom is appointed by the school's major benefactor under arrangements approved by Congregation in Trinity Term 1997 (see Statutes, 1997, pp. 319, 351).
