About this member:
The Vice-Chancellor is the principal academic and administrative officer of the University, and is its resident head. From the late fifteenth century up until 1992, the Vice-Chancellor was elected annually from amongst the Heads of Cambridge Colleges, and usually served for two years in succession, without relinquishing the Headship. The Vice-Chancellorship is now a full-time position, and is appointed by the Council from an international pool, for a period of up to seven years (five years in the first instance); the post can no longer be held simultaneously with a College Headship or any other University post.
