On 31 March, the new College Council was officially constituted.
The new Council reflects the membership outlined in the St Paul’s College Act 2018 (NSW), the basis of College governance that came into effect on 4 February 2019.
The College today announces that Associate Professor Julia Horne, the University Historian and long-time friend of the College, joins Council as a member who is also a member of the University’s academic staff.
The College’s new Act requires that at least one member of the College Council must be an academic of the University of Sydney.
Associate Professor Horne has a long history with the College, back at least to 2007, most notably for the regular History of University Life seminar series that is hosted here at St Paul’s.
She has also assisted the College in other ways, such as serving on the selection panel for the Dean of Graduate House.
Associate Professor Horne was appointed to Council at its March meeting.
Recently, the Rev’d Philip Bradford was re-elected a Clerical Fellow of Council for a term of six years. Mr Matthew Gerber and Mr Andrew Sinclair were re-elected Lay Fellows, also for terms of six years.
A full list of the 2019 Council is available on the College Website here. The transitional provisions of the new Act allowed other existing members to be appointed for approximately the balance of their originally elected terms.
The commencement of the new Council also sees the retirement of long-standing Fellows the Hon Lloyd Waddy AM RFD QC and the Rt Rev’d Richard Hurford OAM.
The College is deeply grateful for the enduring contribution made by Mr Waddy and Bishop Hurford during their tenure on Council, since 1971 and 2001, respectively. The College will be holding farewell events to thank them for their distinguished service to St Paul’s.
