Administrative/Biographical history:

Faculty meetings were introduced in 1897 to decide courses of study for students, matters relating to timetables and the syllabus, and recommendations for prizes and scholarships. Initially the Faculties met monthly, though this was later reduced to three times a year. The Principal acted as the Chair of all Faculty meetings. After 1937, the Arts and Science Tutors, whose role it was to advise students in connection with their courses of study and timetable, were selected at their respective Faculty meetings. All the Faculties elected the Dean, whose duties were more concerned with the social aspects of student life.
