Meet the Senior Common Room

Selwyn College is supported by a strong Board and a senior academic community of Fellows and friends. The Selwyn College Statute, revised by the College Board in 2009, describes a Senior Common Room "which shall exist to foster and promote academic community within its membership, and between its members and members of other academic communities, and in particular members of the University of Otago and visiting scholars."

Members of the Senior Common Room are expected to respect the fundamental objectives of the College's life, to acknowledge the University's role as critic and conscience of society, and to continue to address themselves in pursuit of knowledge and its contribution to the betterment of society in a manner consistent with those objects.
