As part of implementing the College’s ‘Positive Education’ and ‘Good Lad’ and other programs which inculcate collegiate high standards of peer-supported life-long learning and respect for others, together with the Warden, the Senior Tutor takes a pastoral and personal interest in the well-being and academic progress of all members of College, whether at undergraduate, post-graduate, doctoral or post-doctoral levels.

The Senior Tutor is supported by the Associate Senior Tutor who is responsible for managing the tutorial and mentoring programs; and the Student Dean, appointed from among the more senior men in College, who is responsible for organizing Academic Forums and liaising between the Senior Common Room and the undergraduates.
