A Notice regarding this Discussion was published in the Reporter on Wednesday 14 March.

The Council has agreed that there should be an opportunity for the formal Discussion, as part of the University's governance procedures, of a topic of concern on proposals to change the future benefit structure of the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS). A statutory consultation will be conducted by the University on behalf of USS with affected scheme member employees, which will include an open meeting for USS members and roadshows on a number of sites across the University. Further information about the proposed changes to the scheme and the consultation is available online at:

The Vice-Chancellor has agreed that this topic of concern will be discussed on Tuesday, 20 March 2018. Owing to other engagements in the Senate-House, this Discussion will take place in Lady Mitchell Hall on the Sidgwick site. All employees of the University who are members of the USS are invited to attend the Discussion and to speak on this topic, time permitting, in addition to those already entitled to attend.

It is expected that this will be a well-attended Discussion with a large number wishing to speak on this topic. In order that the remarks made at the Discussion can be used to inform the consultation, there will be no continuation of the Discussion if the meeting overruns; the Vice-Chancellor has therefore ruled that the procedural arrangements for the Discussion on 20 March will be as follows. The meeting will start at the usual time of 2 p.m. and will finish at 6 p.m. All those attending who wish to speak but who have not been invited to do so by 6 p.m. will, on this occasion, be asked to leave a copy of their remarks with a designated officer, for publication in the Reporter as part of the report of the Discussion.

The arrangements for the Discussion will follow the standard format. Further information on this is available at: Those who wish to speak but are unable to attend in person can ask the Proctors to read their remarks on their behalf; remarks should ideally be sent to the Senior Proctor (email: by 2 p.m. on Monday, 19 March 2018. It will assist in the preparation of the report of the Discussion if all speakers could send an electronic copy of their remarks to as early as possible.
