Elections by Congregation: Curators of the University Parks constituency

General Information about this constituency

This constituency is comprised of two persons elected by Congregation.

Elections to this constituency restrict candidates to persons, as defined in Statute I. This means that all members of Congregation are eligible to nominate a candidate or to vote, but prospective candidates who want to stand for election must be the resident holder of a teaching, research, or administrative post in the University or in any college, society, or Permanent Private Hall.

The full term of office is four years (or less, when a by-election is held to fill the residue of the term of office for an elected member who is standing down early).

The Curators of the University Parks have charge of the Parks, including the Fishery in the Cherwell, and of any other land the care of which may be entrusted to them from time to time by the Buildings and Estates Sub-Committee.

Curators normally meet on a termly basis on Tuesdays of Week 5, and at a fourth meeting in the Long Vacation when the principal item of business is to inspect the various areas of the Parks. Meetings last about two hours and papers are circulated in advance. Curators are not expected to serve on additional subcommittees/groups. The Curators would welcome candidates with an interest in the Parks.

The terms of reference and membership of this body are set out in Council Regulations 2 of 2004: Part 10
