College Members

College Members

The College has around 330 College Members who contribute to the rich diversity of the College's academic and social community. There are several categories of College Membership reflecting both short-term and longer attachments to the College.

A summary of the College Membership categories can be found below. Individual profiles of all College Members (excluding Associate Members with College Advisor role) are available in the People section of the website.

Governing Body Fellows

The College’s Governing Body is the sovereign body of the College. The Governing Body holds responsibility for all the activities, policies, finances, and staffing of the College. The Governing Body is chaired by the Warden, Professor Roger Goodman, and its members are the Governing Body Fellows of the College. The Governing Body elects the Warden, Fellows, and all College Members of the College. There are currently 38 Governing Body Fellows (including the Warden), most of whom also have an affiliation to a University Department or Faculty in areas that relate to the College's expertise.

Emeritus Fellows

There are 35 Emeritus Fellows, who have a longstanding connection to the College and are elected by the Governing Body after serving as Governing Body Fellows. Many of our Emeritus Fellows continue to research and are actively involved in the life of the College. 

Honorary Fellows

There are currently 23 Honorary Fellows. These fellowships are awarded to people who have academic distinction and have excelled in fields relevant to the College. They are also given to people who have delivered outstanding service to the College or could be expected to deliver such service in the future. These fellowships can also be awarded to people who have donated a substantial gift or been a conduit for such a gift.

Academic Visitors

Academic Visitors come to the College, normally for up to one academic year, to fulfill a specific individual research objective. They may come from an academic or professional career background. Applications for Academic Visitorships are sponsored by a Governing Body Fellow and Academic Visitors need to be able to be researching a topic within the College's field of interest.

Associate Membership with College Advisor role (formerly known as Senior Common Room Membership)

The College is home to approximately 170 Associate Members, who are employed in University Departments and Faculties and are united by their close connection to the college.
