Oxford rejeita reforma

"Oxford University reformist vice-chancellor was dealt a serious blow yesterday as a congregation of dons rejected a package of administrative reforms that would have made the university function more like a modern corporation. After a three-hour debate in the Sheldonian Theatre, 730 members of the "dons’ parliament" voted against implementing the white paper on university governance championed by John Hood, while 456 voted in favour. The paper included reforms that would have taken some administrative powers out of the hands of academics, where they have rested for 900 years, and shared them with outsiders appointed to the council, the central decision-making body for academic policy and university strategy."
