Becoming a committee member

By volunteering to sit on a committee, taking an hour or less twice a term, you can make a valuable and significant contribution to the way that the College work and get to know our community.

Elections to Committees are held each Hilary term, a process for most committees overseen by the Nominating Committee, and committees serve from Trinity term to the following Hilary term.

The College Secretary or the Chair of the General Meeting can provide further information about the committee structure and decision-making processes in the College.

Nomination forms will be available on the web to download in late Michaelmas term and should be returned to the College Secretary by a given date in January (the start of Hilary term).

The benefits to you of joining a committee include:

  • Influence on the operation and strategy of the College;
  • Getting to know the people involved with various facets of College life and developing an intimate knowledge of the way Wolfon works; 
  • Getting experience in problem solving, collaborative decision-making and committee diplomacy.

The benefits to the College of having you on a committee include:

  • New faces to add dynamism and fresh thought to well-established procedures;
  • Keeping College policies up-to-date with student and fellows' perspectives;
  • Bringing and helping to implement new ideas for how to improve the College;
  • Helping students and fellows to get to know one another.
