Statute of Incorporation

The College is constituted by a statute of the New South Wales Parliament, the Saint John’s College Act 2018. The Act, which commenced on 2 July 2018, repeals and replaces the Saint John’s College Act 1857, under which the College was incorporated on 2 July 1858.

College Council

The Act provides for the College to be governed by a Council of 13 Members comprising:

(a)        the Rector;

(b)        3 Members appointed by the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney;

(c)        one Member appointed by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sydney;

(d)       4 Members elected by past students of the College who are graduates of the University of Sydney;

(e)        4 Members appointed by the Council.

Pending the establishment of the Council under the 2018 Act, which will take place later in 2018, the College continues to be governed by a Council of 19 Members under the 1857 Act.
