Nominations in writing for the election on 27 June, by two members of Congregation other than the candidate, will be received by the Head Clerk at the University Offices, Wellington Square, up to 4 p.m. on Monday, 3 June, and similar nominations by six members of Congregation other than the candidate up to 4 p.m. on Monday, 10 June. (As 3 and 4 June are public holidays, it will be assumed that any two-member nomination which has been delivered before the University Offices open at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, 5 June has been duly made before the statutory deadline.)

Council has decided that nominations should show for each signatory the name and college or department in block capitals. Any names which are not so shown may not be published. At least one nomination in respect of each candidate must be made on an official nomination form. Copies of the form are obtainable from Miss Rebecca Gibbs at the University Offices (telephone: (2)80179; e-mail: Rebecca.Gibbs@admin.ox.ac.uk).

In the event of a contested election, a brief biographical note on each candidate will be published in the Gazette dated 21 June, and voters may wish to wait until they have read these notes before returning their ballot papers (which will be sent out to members of Congregation as soon as possible after the closing date for nominations, and which, after completion, must be received by the Head Clerk not later than 4 p.m. on 27 June).

Note on the body concerned

Council is the University's chief executive body, with statutory responsibility for the administration of the University (both academic and other) and for the management of its finances and property, as well as dealing with the relationship between the University and all external bodies. Council submits resolutions and statutes to Congregation for approval, and has the power to make decrees and regulations (which may be opposed in Congregation). Council meets three times a term, and twice in the Long Vacation. It has a number of committees (including Educational Policy and Standards, General Purposes, Personnel, and Planning and Resource Allocation), on which its members are expected to serve if invited to do so.
