Committee on Statutes before the Privy Council

Wadham College: Revised Statutes

The Committee on Statutes before the Privy Council, acting under authority delegated to it by Council, is minded to give consent on behalf of the University to the revised statutes of Wadham College, approved by the Governing Body on 23 May 2013, in so far as such consent is required by section 7(2) of the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge Act, 1923. The consent of the committee to the amendments to the statutes will be effective 11 days after publication of this notice unless written notice of a resolution, signed by at least 20 members of Congregation and calling upon Council to withhold that consent, has been given to the Registrar by noon on Monday, 21 October.

The effect of the amendments is to (i) delete all references to a prescribed retirement age for the Warden and Fellows following the decision of the college to introduce an Employer Justified Retirement Age (details of which set out in the college's by-laws); (ii) delete the age restriction on the elections to Emeritus Fellowships; and (iii) introduce a new statute to clarify the Governing Body's powers of delegation.

Estate Strategy

The University's new Estate Strategy, which was launched at the UAS Conference, sets out the key principles for developing the University's estate over the period 2013–18 and ahead for the next 10–15 years. As one of a number of enabling strategies (with academic, IT and finance strategies), it supports the University's Strategic Plan and is the result of wide-ranging consultation at divisional and senior management level, as well as with relevant external bodies. It reflects the key challenges facing the Higher Education sector and the University, examines the impact of issues around efficiency and sustainability, and outlines future developments that are underway or in the pipeline.

An online summary of the Estate Strategy is available on the Estates Services website at www.admin.ox.ac.uk/estates/strategy or by contacting the team at estate.strategy@admin.ox.ac.uk.
