File: University Chancellor

Scope and Content

The file concerns arrangements for the election and installation of the Chancellor, rather than routine correspondence between the Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor (which for this period can be found in file VCA/7/871).

The Chancellor was elected by members of the University Convocation (under Ordinance I). Following a controversial election in 1986, an ordinance revision working party was established to consider changes to this procedure. This proposed changing Ordinance I to allow election of the Chancellor by the University Court, following recommendations made by an appointments committee. In the event, this change was not implemented.
