Council

Council

One member of Congregation elected by Congregation from members of the faculties in the Divisions of Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences and of Medical Sciences:

Current/Retiring Member To hold office until
Professor M.S. Williams, New College MT 2015

The following nominations have been received:

Martin S. Williams, BSc PhD Brist, MA Oxf, Fellow of New College, Faculty of Engineering Science

Nominated by:

Sir Curtis Price, Warden of New College, Faculty of Music

R.W. Ainsworth, Master of St Catherine's, Faculty of Engineering Science

G.T. Houlsby, Brasenose, Faculty of Engineering Science

J.B. Muddiman, Mansfield, Faculty of Theology

P.M. Newman, New College, Faculty of Engineering Science

P.J. Robins, St Antony's, Faculty of Social Sciences

Candidate statement:

I have been a University Lecturer (latterly titular Professor) and Tutorial Fellow since 1989. In my time in post I have served as Senior Tutor of New College (1995–99), Chairman of Examiners on three occasions, Deputy Head of the Engineering Science Department (2004–07) and Senior Proctor (2009–10). These experiences have given me an interesting and varied set of perspectives on how the University runs. Last year I was elected to a one-year vacancy on Council. During the year I also served as a Council-nominated member of PRAC and of several working groups, including the one currently exploring the feasibility of improving access through foundation or bridging courses. I am now standing for re-election to Council in the hope that I can complete a more substantial term of office.

Over the past year Council's business has, for obvious reasons, been dominated by an agenda of financial cuts, undergraduate fees and access issues. While I think the University has handled these difficult issues well, some other important topics have inevitably received less attention. Looking to the future, an area to which I attach particular importance is graduate study. I believe the University needs to do much more to attract and support the best graduate students if we are to maintain or enhance our international standing. The likely knock-on effects of the new undergraduate funding arrangements can only add to this challenge.

Socially Responsible Investment Review Committee

A member of Congregation elected by Congregation from members of the faculties in the Divisions of Humanities and of Social Sciences:

Current/Retiring Member To hold office until
Professor G. Clark, St Peter's MT 2014

The following nominations have been received:

Gordon L. Clark, BEcon MA Monash, MA DSc Oxf, PhD McMaster, Fellow of St Peter's, Faculty of Anthropology and Geography

Nominated by:

D.J. Banister, St Anne's, Faculty of Anthropology and Geography

R.A. Hope, Faculty of Anthropology and Geography

P.R. Jepson, Faculty of Anthropology and Geography

D. Wojcik, St Peter's, Faculty of Anthropology and Geography

Candidate statement:

I was initially elected to serve on the Committee when it was just being established. At the time, my interest in serving on the Committee was both personal and professional. I think it is important that on crucial issues of ethics and public policy, the University should have a clear and well-conceived 'voice' reflecting our interests as well as our knowledge and understanding of the issues. Equally, given the significance of issues such as environmental change, globalisation, and human capacity if University investment policies intersect with these issues then we have a responsibility to evaluate those policies in the light of the best available advice.  Inevitably, the Committee could consider issues of considerable moral significance involving public controversy as well as irreconcilable beliefs. At the same time, the Committee has a more conventional mandate providing advice to Council based upon the evaluation of the issues, the available evidence, and the skills and knowledge of those that participate in the Committee. The Committee has taken time to consider one important issue which has prompted consideration of the role and status of the Committee, its procedures, and what strategies might be followed by the University in governing its investment policies in the future. As such, serving on the Committee is an opportunity to take the issues forward going beyond single questions to a larger framework consistent with the University's goals and objectives. I would welcome the opportunity to serve on the Committee a further term.

S. Rippon, MA Oxf, AM PhD Harvard, Fellow of Somerville, Faculty of Philosophy

Nominated by:

N. Bostrom, St Cross, Faculty of Philosophy

L. Brown, Somerville, Faculty of Philosophy

A. Lahiri, Somerville, Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics

E. Mandelbaum, Faculty of Philosophy

Candidate statement:

I have been working at Oxford since about a year and a half ago, as a post-doctoral researcher at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics. As a moral philosopher, I have a professional, as well as a personal, interest in issues of ethics and social responsibility. I am keen to use my professional training and experience to provide input into some of the practical workings and policies of the University. Oxford is a social and cultural leader both in the UK and Abroad, and I think it enormously important that the University be—and be seen to be—not just financially successful but also morally responsible in its investment practices.

Curators of the University Libraries

Two members of Congregation elected by Congregation:

Current/Retiring Member To hold office until
Professor V.A. Gillespie, Lady Margaret Hall MT 2015
Professor T.P. Softley, Merton   
MT 2015

The following nominations have been received:

Kate Blackmon, BSc Clemson, BA Queens (Charlotte, NC), MBA PhD North Carolina, MA Oxf, Faculty of Management

Nominated by:

M. Chen-Wishart, Merton, Faculty of Law

C.L. Flegg, Sainsbury Library at the Said Business School

D. Grimley, Merton, Faculty of Music

J.C. Walworth, Merton, Faculty of History

Ian J. Finlay, BA Midd, MA Open, PhD Lanc, Oxford Learning Institute

Nominated by:

R. Waller, Principal of Harris Manchester, Faculty of Theology

S.A. Killoran, Harris Manchester

H.W. Marsh, St Cross, Faculty of Social Studies

K.M. Quinlan, Oxford Learning Institute

Candidate statement:

I build my case as a potential Curator of the University Libraries on three pillars. The first is passion. I have been passionate about libraries, both public and academic, since my father first enrolled me in Macdonald Road Public Library, Edinburgh, over 50 years ago. Since that time I would have rather spent my time in a library than almost any other place. Many meals have been missed and appointments unkept because I have been chasing up some interesting line of thought in a library. Now of course such a passion is unexceptional in this university. More is expected of a Curator.

The second pillar is therefore experience. At my previous institution I spent a period of office on the Library Committee and was exposed to the provider rather than the user perspective. Concerns about resources, regulations and service were added to my previous experiences as an enthusiastic learner and researcher. Since coming to Oxford I have drawn on this experience to support the librarians in my college.

The final pillar is expertise in learning theory. My empirical research is in learning in higher education. I examine the factors that improve and hinder the learning of both undergraduate and graduate students. The university libraries in Oxford play a role possibly more important than in most other higher education institutions in supporting student learning given the focus on tutorial teaching. This role needs to be supported.

On these three pillars I present my case for election.

W.H. Whyte, St John's, Faculty of History

Candidate statement:

I live close to the Parks and walk through them daily, sometimes to work and sometimes with family. I well understand the Parks' importance to many in the university and city who prize them as a haven in the centre of an increasingly busy town. I have played (college) and watched (university) sport in them, my children have fed the ducks in them, and walked neighbours' dogs in them, I have pushed my cycle through them when it was experimentally permitted (and stopped when it wasn't), and I have ruminated on the optimal siting of the crepe van. I have also discussed the remit and nature of the role with past and present Curators. I therefore have a pretty informed sense of the unusual variety of academic, recreational, sporting, family and commuting purposes which the Parks serve, and the necessity of preserving their harmonious co-existence.
