Governance and Structure
The Queen’s community is large and diverse, covering those who currently live and work in College, and those who are still associated with it even though they have moved out. This page helps to explain how these groups fit together under the ‘Queen’s community’ umbrella.
College Council and Master
The College is governed by the Council, similar to a Board of directors. Its President is Mr Ian Marshman AM. The Council appoints the Master, who is the Head of the College. The current Master of Queen’s is Dr Stewart Gill OAM.
The College Dean, Dr Lesa Scholl, Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Streets and the Executive Director Advancement, Nicole Crook, form the core of the Senior Management Team with the Master, and are responsible for the day to day running of the College. Other divisions such as Buildings & grounds, Catering, IT and Housekeeping, report to the senior management team.
Junior Common Room, Middle Common Room, Senior Common Room
Queen’s members fall into either the category of JCR (undergraduate students) MCR (postgraduate) or SCR (resident staff, MCR over the age of 30, resident theologians, and Visiting Scholars in residence).
General Committee and MCR Executive
The General Committee (GC) is the elected leadership of the Junior Common Room. The GC runs the Queen’s College Sports & Social Club. The GC act as role models for younger students, and are available to help in all kinds of ways. There is also a multitude of sub-committees within the JCR – environmental, social work, social activities, music and drama, cultural events, sports etc. The Middle Common Room has a separate executive with portfolios across social and academic life.
The term Wyvern is drawn from the mythical dragon on the College crest. Wyverns are past residents of Queen’s and are therefore our alumni. Coming to Queen’s means you will automatically join the Wyvern Society with over 6000 Wyverns living in over 40 countries around the world.
Fellows are senior members of the College’s academic community and provide advice and support about the development of the academic, cultural and spiritual life of the College. The Fellows of the College are listed here.
