Selwyn supports students in many ways, and one of these is financially – which is particularly important in these tough economic times. When they experience unforeseen financial problems, our students benefit from the various sources of support that are available centrally to students from all colleges. Generally the way these can be accessed is through your tutor, and sometimes the Senior Tutor, making a case to the relevant university body. The range of grants and funds is extensive.
Selwyn College is pleased to have appointed Jennifer Phillips as its next Bursar. She will join the college in November, taking over responsibility for finance, estates, hospitality and domestic services from the retiring Bursar, Martin Pierce.
The college held its first full graduation ceremony with guests since 2019 on the afternoon of July 1st. General Admission took its traditional form with students gathering in Old Court for a commemorative photograph, and then processing to the university Senate House to receive their degrees from the Master in his role as the vice-chancellor’s deputy. We were delighted to be joined by so many family members and friends, and we offer the heartiest congratulations to our new graduates.
We welcome Lucy Turnell who has now taken over as college Nurse and Welfare Officer.
This represents a further expansion in the nursing and welfare provision within the college. Until relatively recently, the nurse was a part-time role and during term only; and it has become full time and year-round. This is possible because of the generous benefaction of Peter and Christina Dawson.
