CONGREGATION 24 April 2 p.m.

¶ Members of Congregation are reminded that written notice of any intention to vote against the following resolution, signed by at least two members of Congregation, must be given to the Registrar by noon on Monday, 16 April (see the Guide to Procedures in Congregation cited in the note at the end of `University Agenda'). As 16 April is Easter Monday, the University Offices will be closed on that day, and it will be assumed that any notice which has been delivered before the offices reopen at 8 a.m. on 17 April has been duly given before the statutory deadline.

Voting on Resolution approving the conferment of an Honorary Degree

That the conferment of the Degree of Master of Arts, honoris causa, upon KIM SCOTT WALWYN, MA (MA Cambridge), Lady Margaret Hall, be approved.

¶ Ms Walwyn worked at the Oxford University Press as an Editor, Editorial Director, and Publishing Director between 1978 and 2000. She played a major role in the development of the Press's scholarly and general publishing in English Literature, and oversaw the continued expansion of its scholarly publishing in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Her natural empathy with the spirit of intellectual endeavour was combined with the good commercial judgement and discipline which are essential to safeguard the long-term future of a learned press.

If the resolution is approved, the honorary degree will be conferred on a date to be announced.
