Oxford University Gazette, 25 September 2008: University Acts

COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY

Changes in Regulations

Council has made the following changes in regulations, to come into effect on 10 October.

Nominations Committee

In Council Regulations 15 of 2002 (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4634, 16 October 2002) concerning the Nominations Committee (made by Council on 15 November 2007, Gazette, Vol. 138, p. 316), delete existing regulation 3.82 (2) (c) and substitute (new text underlined): '(c) Council shall consider all recommendations received from the Nominations Committee and shall either propose one candidate for each vacancy for approval by Congregation or shall ask the committee to submit further names for its consideration;'.

[These changes reflect the original intention of Council that only one candidate per vacancy be submitted to Congregation. The failure to make this explicit has come to light in the course of preparing changes to the regulations concerning the conduct of business in Congregation to specify the procedure for Congregation approval of the nomination of external members of Council as required by the resolution of November 2007 (see 'University Agenda'.).]
