Congregation 7 May 2019 (Parks College)

A meeting will be held at 2pm on 7 May in the Sheldonian Theatre for the reading of the reply to the question made under Part 5 of Congregation Regulations 2 of 2002 at (1) below, and to put formally the legislative proposal at (2) and the resolution at (3) below to Congregation.

Members of Congregation are reminded that any two members may, not later than noon on 29 April, give notice in writing to the Registrar that they wish to oppose or amend the legislative proposal at (2) below or the resolution at (3) below (see the note on the conduct of business in Congregation below). If no notice of opposition or amendment has been received in advance of the meeting, it may not be necessary to proceed to a vote on the legislative proposal or the resolution. If, having taken into account the speeches at the meeting, the Vice-Chancellor considers that a consensus may have been reached, she may announce that, in her opinion, the legislative proposal or resolution is accepted or rejected as the case may be. If, however, six members of Congregation rise in their places (for example, if they disagree), a vote will be taken. If a vote is taken at the meeting, the Vice-Chancellor and the Proctors have determined that this will take place by paper ballot.

Further information on the practical arrangements will be published in due course.
