Elections by Congregation: Visitors of the Ashmolean Museum (Social Sciences Division)

General Information about this constituency

This constituency is comprised of one member of Congregation from the Social Sciences Division.

Elections to this constituency restrict candidates to members of the Social Sciences division. 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 a member of Congregation in the Social Sciences Division. 

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 Visitors are responsible under Council, for the safe keeping, preservation, orderly administration and general policy of the museum. The board meets five times a year and meetings usually last three to four hours. The role of the Congregation-elected members is to represent their division in the museum and represent the museum within their division. The board would welcome members with an understanding of the potential of the University museum and its collections to support the University’s teaching and research agendas. 

The terms of reference and membership of this body are set out in Council Regulations 2 of 2019.
