The College Council is the governing body of Royal Holloway. The Council is responsible for enabling the College to develop and achieve its mission, and overseeing the College’s activities, ensuring that it is done consistently with the Royal Holloway and Bedford New College Act and College Statutes and with the statutes, regulations and ordinances of the University of London.  Council members devote a considerable amount of their own time to the College.  Much of this is devoted to governance activities but they also help to promote the interests of the College, building networks and encouraging supporters. 

Further details on the Council can be found on the Royal Holloway Website 

There is currently a vacancy for one Elected Staff member on the Council as follows:

Member of Staff not in the Academic Teaching Staff

This vacancy, which is for a member elected from among their own number by the non academic teaching staff, arises with the expiry of Hollie White’s first term of office on 30 September 2012. Miss White was elected in November 2011 to fill a casual vacancy created by the resignation of Dr Emmett Sullivan during his term of office.   Miss White is eligible to stand for re-election.

The term of office of the successful candidate will be from 1 October 2012 to 30 September 2015.
