The College’s senior membership and staff form a diverse and experienced oversight, management, and support team for the College.
The senior membership of Hughes Hall comprises a broad range of professional academics at all stages of their academic careers, from early career researchers developing their research profiles, to established Professors directing world-class projects and departments. The College’s Governing Body, which has overall responsibility for the College and is the committee of charity trustees for the College as a charity, is made up of a core group of ‘Fellows’. However, the broader senior membership, made up of Honorary, Life, and Quondam Fellows, as well as By-Fellows, Associates, Research Associates, and Visiting Scholars incorporates a wide range of scholars and professionals into the intellectual and communal life of the College. As a group, referred to collectively as the “senior membership”, these individuals represent the core academic, cultural and institutional leadership of the College community.
The wider community of staff includes individuals experienced in the wide range of skills and day-to-day support functions required in a large and complex educational institution.
