Student Welfare

There are many people within Green Templeton College who can assist you with issues that are affecting your health and welfare.

Academic Registrar

As the welfare lead and disability co-ordinator in the College office team, Alison Franklin can be contacted if you require support for issues related to your inductions, health and welfare, including alternative examination arrangements and hardship funding.

Alison can also be contacted about the Gender Expression Fund. More information on this fund can be found on the intranet.

Senior Tutor and Tutor for Graduates

Senior Tutor, Dr Alison Stenton can be contacted if you would like to discuss your academic progress, issues related to your academic support and academic engagement activities. As the College’s Equality & Diversity Lead, she can also be consulted, in confidence, on any issues related to harassment or discrimination.


The Dean is responsible for welfare in the student body, ensuring that the college’s policies on welfare are being observed and reacting to individual cases as these arise. The Dean is ex officio Chair of the Student Welfare Committee.

Junior Dean

The Dean works closely with the Junior Deans, who act as key liaison figures between the college and students.

The Junior Dean role has been shared by two Green Templeton students, Kirsty Harper and Javian Malcolm, during 2019/20. Three Green Templeton students have been appointed to succeed them in the role and will be shadowing them during Trinity Term 2020: Hettie Davies, Charlotte Lee and Carlos Outeiral.

They are the first point of contact for students experiencing issues that affect their welfare, no matter how big or small they are.

College Adviser

Your College Adviser can provide pastoral support, for example on health, personal or coping issues, and/or direct you to appropriate persons for assistance.

Pastoral Adviser

Emeritus Fellow Professor John Lennox, the college’s Pastoral Adviser, offers advice, dialogue and support from the standpoint of a person of religious faith – in his case that of a practising Christian – to members of the college’s community who may wish to turn to him, regardless of their faith.

Harassment Advisers

Green Templeton does not condone the bullying or harassment of any of its members, by any of its members.

Students who feel that they are being subjected to bullying or harassment by another member of the college can seek advice from the Green Templeton Harassment Advisers, or refer to the University website for additional external support services.

Green Templeton’s Harassment Advisers:

University Counselling Service

The University has a professionally-staffed, confidential Student Counselling Service for assistance with personal, emotional, social, and academic problems.

The Student Counselling Service is available free to all matriculated undergraduate and graduate members of the University.

University Sexual Harassment and Violence Support Service

The University Sexual Harassment and Violence Support Service is for any students, regardless of age or gender, who have been affected by sexual harassment or violence. It provides free support and advice, and a safe place to be heard independent of your college or department.
