Christ Church, Oxford has today appointed the Rt Hon Dominic Grieve QC to lead an independent review into governance of the Foundation, after its Governing Body voted overwhelmingly to endorse the former Attorney General for England and Wales as chair of the review.

Christ Church, one of the largest colleges of the University of Oxford, is unique in that it also contains Oxford’s Cathedral, which is the college chapel as well as the Cathedral church of the Anglican Diocese of Oxford.

The Independent Governance Review, which is expected to report in 2023, will make recommendations that the Governing Body will carefully consider, to ensure that Christ Church’s statutes, by-laws and governance arrangements meet the needs of this unique institution in the 21st century.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Grieve said:

“I am both pleased and honoured to be chairing this Review, which I believe will help Christ Church to sustain its long history of academic excellence and flourish as a modern institution.

“I am delighted to play a role in this process.”
