Final elections for old style Hebdomadal Council

The latest elections to Hebdomadal Council will probably be the last as the old style Council is now set to be abolished under the new reforms in governance agreed by the University last month.

Professor Sue Iversen, Professor of Psychology, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research), and Fellow of Magdalen College joins Council from Michaelmas Term. She will fill the vacancy left by the departure of Mr Anthony Smith, President of Magdalen College. She was nominated by the Proctors and the Vice-Chancellor, as no other candidate stood.

The two other vacancies were refilled, unopposed, by Miss Elizabeth Llewellyn-Smith, Principal of St Hilda's College, who has served on Council since Michaelmas 1993, and Professor Keith McLauchlan, FRS, Professor of Chemistry and Fellow of Hertford College, who was first elected to Council last year.

Members of Council are usually elected to serve for six years, but it is anticipated that a new-style Council—incorporating the General Board—could begin work in 2000.

Hebdomadal Council was established in 1854 as the University's ruling executive.
