2 Promulgation of Statute

Statute: Decisions on college associations for joint appointments

Explanatory note

Under the new governance statutes with effect from 1 October 2000, power to make final decisions on college associations for joint appointments (i.e. for posts other than chairs and statutory readerships) has been devolved to the Divisional Boards. The new Council has given further consideration to this power, in the light of the views expressed by the Hebdomadal Council and the General Board in Trinity Term 2000 and in particular of the need for decisions on college associations for these posts to be taken in the knowledge of the position on such associations across all divisions. Council has concluded that there is a need for an additional stage to be introduced into the procedures already agreed so that such an overview may be taken before a final decision is reached, and therefore promotes the following statute to amend the earlier legislation.

WHEREAS it is expedient for final decisions on college associations for joint appointments to be made above divisional level, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

In Tit. V, Sect. II, § 1, cl. 1 (f) (Statutes, 1997, p. 40, as amended by the Statute approved by Congregation on 29 June 1999, Gazette, Vol. 129, pp. 1323, 1482, and by Statute (1) approved by Congregation on 23 May 2000, Gazette, Vol. 130, pp. 1201, 1230), after `the settling of college associations for new and vacant academic posts' insert `, subject to ratification by a joint university/college panel'.
