CR Executive Team

President: Sophie Debrunner Hall

Sophie is a second-year MPhil student in Comparative Social Policy.

As president, she represents the Common Room Members to the College and wider University. Her job is to ensure the Executive Committee and Reps have everything they need to get their jobs done, coordinate the work of the Exec and make sure that the members of the Common Room are able to actively shape the CR and the college. If you don't know who to contact, or have any questions or concerns, feel free to get in touch under cr.president[.-at.-]linacre.ox.ac.uk. 

 

Treasurer: Abdossalam M Madkhali (AKA Golden Eagle)

After holding pretty much all the other roles he possibly could in his impossibly long time here, Linacre CR has bestowed the honour and duty of  CR Treasurer onto Abdossalam, who is pursuing a DPhil in Radiobiology and Oncology.

Every year Linacre allocates a significant portion of funding to Common Room activities and sports and recreation. This money is set aside for CR members to utilize to enrich their experience during their time here. These funds are a partial return on your college fees, so you’re encouraged to make use of them! He is responsible for preparing the annual budget detailing how these funds are divided up among accounts for Common Room social events, services, and equipment as well as clubs and societies.

Executive Committee members and heads of clubs and societies access funds from their respective accounts by submitting to me invoices addressed to the college or reimbursement forms with receipts documenting their spending. Each term he provide updates on account balances at Common Room meetings. He also serve as the primary point of contact between the students and the bursary.  For questions or to get in touch please email: cr.treasurer[.-at.-]linacre.ox.ac.uk

 

Secretary: Jamie Lee

After serving the college as the Food Officer for the Linacre Ball Committee 2017, Jamie decided to be of service to Linacre again as the CR Secretary whilst he studies for a DPhil in Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics researching the genetics of hearing loss. His main role as secretary is to prepare agendas for, and to take minutes of CR meetings and Executive meetings that regularly take place throughout term time. He also maintains the archive of CR documents, distributes the CR mail and does his best to support the actions of other CR Executives! Please do drop him an email at cr.secretary[.at.-]linacre.ox.ac.uk if you have any questions about any of the CR meetings or about the college by-laws.

Social Secretaries: Dan Wilson. Derek Xu, Sapna Sinha

 As Social Secretaries our role is to make your time at Linacre a memorable one and to organise events that the whole CR body would be interested in. At Linacre we love a good party and are infamous for the post-event swimming on the grounds, so feel free to join in with any event and rest assured, although Linacre is a close and comfortable group, you will never come across a more welcoming bunch.

To ensure that all events will bring the best level of joy and entertainment to all of you, we feel it is important to put together a really varied term card, and are open to all suggestions. If you have any ideas of events that you are interested in, or that could bring the Fellows and student bodies closer together too, any nature walks, museum tours, city day trips, and even camping trips that you feel Linacrites should experience together, let us know at cr.social[.-at.-]linacre.ox.ac.uk.

To keep up to date with social events at Linacre and in the wider Oxford graduate community, you can subscribe to the Linacre Common Room mailing list by sending an email to: linacre-social-subscribe[.-at.-]maillist.ox.ac.uk or join the Linacre Facebook CR site. Let the good times roll...
