Notice: This is a preview of the report. We will fully publish and launch the report after a commenting period of two weeks. You can send us feedback at whisper@oxfordwhisperer.uk.

Introduction

This report is a first look at the governance and transparency of colleges’ middle common rooms. It is part of a series that will examine governance and transparency at the University of Oxford.

The series is for both current and prospective students at the University of Oxford as well as for the wider public: for current ones to help inform them, for prospective ones to have additional information on the colleges and MCRs they might wish to apply to, and for the wider public to gain insights into the sometimes Byzantine workings of the University of Oxford, colleges and student organization.

The Oxford Whisperer will publish updated reports on a yearly schedule. We hope to expand its coverage and breadth over time to other institutions at the university.

A middle common room (MCR) at a college is an association of all its graduate students. The name refers to the physical space that graduate students use. It comes with its own elected representatives, an MCR Committee, which work together with a college’s staff and governing body to provide the best possible experience for their graduate students. An MCR Committee organizes events and gatherings, and its budget can be considerable. Smaller MCRs can already have a yearly budget of £10,000s. Such funds can be misspent, however, or other issues can arise.

With power comes responsibility, and as each MCR has different governing documents - i.e., a constitution, standing orders, or bye-laws - there are some pronounced differences between them. In the following, we will examine different MCRs and rank them according to transparency and governance measures.

By prioritizing governance measures that are easily improved and which lead to more visibility and participation within MCRs, we hope to encourage positive change. We spotlight MCRs that rank highly to celebrate their status as role models while showcasing MCRs that rank poorly to raise awareness within them.

In 2020, there were 12,322 graduate students in Oxford at 37 different colleges and 8 private halls. This includes nominal junior common rooms (JCRs) for graduate students, like Nuffield JCR, and common rooms for both undergraduate and graduate students, like St Benet’s JCR.

Kellogg College has the most students overall, with 1193 graduate students, 78% (892) of which are part-time students. Taking this into account, Wolfson College has the most full-time graduate students (695).

The Oxford Student Union has a list of all student representatives in MCR Committees. The list is not always up-to-date, but it provides a good overview. According to the list, 602 (graduate) student representatives fill 652 different roles. Some MCR constitutions forbid their students from being elected into more than one position, but by far, most MCR constitutions do not explicitly prevent this.

We can examine the size of individual MCR committees. They differ a lot: in the range of students they represent, the committees’ size, and how much of the MCR they represent as a fraction of elected representatives to overall MCR students. An MCR Committee that already makes up a more significant fraction of the student body will naturally find it easier to be more representative: the MCR Committees of Corpus Christi, Nuffield, and Trinity College will more easily represent their student body than those of Wolfson, St Cross, and Kellogg College.

Governance & Transparency

For most MCRs, we have found their constitution, by-laws, and standing orders online. We have examined their regulations and public documents and studied four measures in order of importance for transparency and governance and their ease of implementation. For each measure, we compute a score and then weigh and sum the scores accordingly. The measures are:

  1. Are meeting minutes for general meetings and committee meetings shared with anyone? If so, with whom, and are they publicly available?
  2. Is a report of the finances shared with the MCR (the members or at least the committee)?
  3. Are the finances audited? Internally, by college, or made available on request to MCR members?
  4. Are students allowed to be elected to multiple elected positions at the same time? (Holding multiple elected positions can weaken accountability as governing documents generally assume that different officials have different positions.)

We detail the methodology below.

As essentially all MCRs have general meetings (meetings with all MCR members) as a requirement in their constitution, we have not explicitly included this in the ranking. The only and notable exception is Kellogg College’s MCR. It would not have made a difference, however: Kellogg College’s MCR already ranks last.

Teddy Hall’s MCR ranks highest, and Kellogg College’s MCR ranks last by total score.

Teddy Hall’s MCR is exemplary. The constitution mandates internal finance audits and audits by the college. They also allow MCR members to request insight into the expenses. Both the minutes of general meetings and committee meetings are made available to members, and the former are also made available publicly up until 2019.

Brasenose College’s HCR, Magdalen College’s MCR, and New College’s MCR also rank highly on all measures.

On the other end of the spectrum, Kellogg College’s MCR disallows election to multiple positions, and Kellogg College audits the finances, but otherwise, it is the least transparent. Meeting minutes are not shared with MCR members and committee members, and there are no general meetings.

Similarly, St Anthony College’s GCR, Oriel College’s MCR, and Wadham College’s MCR do not mandate sharing meeting notes with Committee members or MCR members in their governing documents. However, they commit to more auditing and financial reporting than Kellogg College’s MCR.

Overall, this only provides a partial perspective because, for many MCRs, we could not find sufficient information online. We hope to update this report as we gather additional data.

Blackfriars JCR and Campion Hall MCR have fewer than 30 students each in their common rooms, so they are not listed in the table below. Less formal approaches to governance seem practicable.

MCR Governance and Transparency in Detail

Selection of Measures

MCR Committees can be viewed as public bodies representing their constituents and acting on their behalf, similar to local governments. The report “What is Good Governance?”1 by UNESCAP defines “governance” as:

the process of decision-making and the process by which decisions are implemented (or not implemented)
UNESCAP Report: “What is Good Governance?”

and identifies eight essential characteristics for good governance: participatory, consensus-oriented, accountable, transparent, responsive, effective and efficient, equitable and inclusive, and law-abiding. Out of these, transparency is a crucial requirement for accountability.

Both transparency and accountability together determine the trust and legitimacy extended by constituents2 3.

Based on a “Good Governance Checklist”4 by the California Institute for Local Government, we selected four measures that act as proxies for accountability and transparency standards, and which can be evaluated using an MCR’s governing documents.

Ranking

We weigh the four measures in order of their importance for transparency and governance, taking into account how easy it would be to improve each measure.

Availability of Meeting Minutes

We rank the availability of meeting minutes highest because it increases the visibility of the MCR committee and transparency at the same time. Especially during the current pandemic, this visibility is essential. There are few other means to keep up-to-date and see what an MCR committee is planning and ask questions openly. Furthermore, sharing meeting minutes is easy to do.

Publishing of a Financial Report

Next up is the availability of a financial report presented to the MCR or the MCR Committee. Even though such a report may not contain detailed expenses, it creates accountability on a high level, increases awareness on how the MCR Committee spends its budget, and encourages participation. Colleges already require such reports typically to determine the amount of money to grant to their MCRs. Making such reports available is easy in principle and does not require much work.

Required Financial Audits

Allowing for audits is generally a well-known principle for increasing accountability and preventing abuse of office. Most MCR constitutions require all expenses to be audited by their respective college. Many MCRs also require internal audits by independent students (not on the MCR Committee) at the end of a treasurer’s term before the accounts are presented to the college. Some MCRs also give other students insight into expenses independently on request. Internal audits require additional work, as does enabling independent insight, and consequently, we weigh them below financial reports.

Holding Multiple Elected Positions

Holding multiple elected positions is chiefly detrimental from a representative perspective. Being elected to multiple positions does not give additional votes. However, it can hinder accountability as constitutions and standing orders generally assume that different people hold different positions, presenting a natural check on elected officers, e.g., President and Treasurer. Some MCRs have tiered systems to prevent this, like Hertford, or only allow an MCR official to hold multiple positions in exceptional circumstances. While this rule is easy to implement, we deem it to have the least positive effect on governance and transparency and weigh it the least.

Methodology

Availability of Meeting Minutes

We score whether general meeting minutes are made available and to whom as per the constitution:

  • Only to the secretary, who keeps the minutes (0);
  • Only to be discussed at the next meeting (1);
  • To all members (2).

Similarly, we score whether MCR committee meetings are made available and to whom:

  • Only to the secretary, who keeps the minutes (0);
  • Only to be discussed at the next meeting (1);
  • Only to MCR committee members (2);
  • To all members (3).

We examine whether meeting minutes are available currently on the website:

  • No (0);
  • Yes, but only after logging in (1);
  • Yes, but not up-to-date (2); and
  • Yes (3).

We normalize each score and weigh by the ease of implementation and importance for encouraging participation and transparency:

MEETING_MINUTES = GENERAL_MINUTES/2 * 3 + COMMITTEE_MINUTES/3 * 2 + PUBLIC_MINUTES / 3

Publishing of a Financial Report

We score the requirement to publish a financial report in the governing documents as follows:

  • No report (0);
  • Only to the MCR committee (1);
  • Only to a noticeboard for a given time (1);
  • Presentation at a general meeting (2).

We normalize the score.

Required Financial Audits

We score the options for financial audits in governing documents as follows:

  • No audits (0);
  • Audits on request of an MCR member (1);
  • Internal audits (by independent students) (2);
  • College audits (2).

We sum up the available options (as detailed in the respective governing documents) and normalize by the maximum score (5). We score audits on request less because they are not automated and require action by a student.

Holding Multiple Elected Positions

We score whether an official is allowed to be elected and hold multiple positions as follows:

  • Allowed (0);
  • Not specified (0);
  • Constrained (e.g., by a tiered system or similar) (1);
  • Disallowed (2).

We normalize the score.

Total Score

We compute the total score as a weighted sum:

TOTAL_SCORE = MEETING_MINUTES * 4 + FINANCIAL_REPORT * 3 + FINANCIAL_AUDITS * 2 + MULTIPLE_ROLES

Thus, the total score is between 0 and 10.

Limitations

The report’s breadth is limited as it only examines four separate measures and focuses on measures of transparency and accountability. We also limit ourselves to examining governing documents and do not survey the lived experience of students.

The ranking can be subject to argument. We believe the advantages of having a single score and ranking outweigh those of having only a partial ordering. The ranking has been found relatively stable to changes.

Conclusion

This report is the first in a series on governance and transparency at the University of Oxford. It has presented a wide disparity in how different MCRs approach transparency and governance. While many colleges are exemplary, some others are lagging in their commitments.

We hope this report will encourage positive change and that the added visibility will benefit student participation.
