Oxford University Gazette, 6 October 2005: University Agenda
CONGREGATION 11 October
NoticeThe meeting of Congregation is cancelled. The sole business comprises questions to which no opposition has been notified and in respect of which no request for an adjournment has been received, and Mr Vice-Chancellor will accordingly declare the resolutions carried without a meeting under the provisions of Sect. 7 (1) of Statute IV (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4633, 9 October 2002, Vol. 133, p. 100).
1 Declaration of approval of Resolutions
(1) Resolution concerning the University's Draft Corporate Plan
Explanatory noteThe University was required to submit a Corporate Strategy to the Higher Education Funding Council for England by 27 July of this year, the last such plan having been submitted in 2001 (an interim Corporate Planning Statement was submitted to HEFCE in 2004 (and published in the Gazette) pending the production of the full plan). The plan takes account of the extensive consultation which took place on the Green Paper on Academic Strategy published in January of this year.
Council approved the draft plan at its meeting on 11 July 2005, subject to approval by Congregation. The document was submitted to the Funding Council at the end of July to meet that body's formal deadline but it was made clear to HEFCE that it had yet to receive the formal approval of Congregation. The following Resolution submitted by Council seeks Congregation's approval of the plan.
Text of ResolutionThat this House approve the draft Corporate Plan for 20056 to 200910 published as supplement *1 to Gazette Vol. 136 (also available on the Web site at http://www.ox.ac.uk/gazette/ 2005-6/supps/corporate.pdf).
¶ The following amendment will be taken into consideration:
Delete the final '.' and replace by 'with the clarification that the intent of paragraph 2 is understood to be further explained by paragraphs 46. Congregations agrees with the broad strategy and encourages Council to continue work on establishing priorities for dealing with the various issues raised in the Plan.'
Proposed by: Professor S. Cooper, St Catherine's
Seconded by: Dr A.W.M. Graham, Master of Balliol
¶ Council has agreed that the above amendment is acceptable to it. The amended
resolution will therefore be carried without question put under the provisions of Regulations
3.30 (3) of Congregation Regulations 2 of 2002 (made by Congregation on 5 March 2002
and amended on 12 October 2004).
