Inside Oxford: How Oxford Restructured for the Twenty-First Century (and its Implications for Colleges)
Professor Roger Goodman, Warden of St Antony’s College
Thursday 22 March 2018

In 2000, the University of Oxford introduced its most significant reforms for more than half a century. The University was divided into five (later four) independent divisions to which all financial and academic responsibility was devolved. An ‘as earned’ principle was introduced which meant that Divisions and Departments received funds on the basis on which money came to the university and then ‘bought’ services either from the University or on the open market. The introduction of this internal form of market competition was designed to enable the University to continue to complete externally on the global stage. After almost fifteen years of this model being in place, it is clear that it has had many positive benefits. But it also suffers from several major drawbacks which the university and increasingly its colleges are now needing to address with some urgency.

Professor Roger Goodman became Warden of St Antony’s College in October 2017 after serving as Head of the Social Sciences Division at the University of Oxford for nine years. His field of research is Japanese education and social policy and he is the Nissan Professor of Modern Japanese Studies.
