Membership of the Appointments Committee comprises the Director (Chair), the three Pro Directors, the VCAC, all members of the School's professoriat and non-professorial Heads of Department. The Appointments Committee is advisory to the Director, by whom that advice is conveyed to the Governors.

Meeting frequency

The Appointments Committee meets once per session in the Summer term. The meeting follows the conclusion of the annual schedule of business of the Promotions Committee. Departments/Institutes are asked to ensure that, at minimum, one professor is in attendance.

The system of voluntary membership will be kept under review.  A system of appointed membership will be considered if the system of voluntary attendance proves unsuccessful.
