College Chaplain

The College Chaplain, Andrew Teal, is available to discuss matters of welfare or academic life with people of all faiths and none. “Many of the meetings are occasional, prompted by a meeting in the Quad or Farthings, and may be prompted by a desire to reflect upon a particular issue or crisis. People are welcome to grab the moment and just let something out or share it. These meetings are predominantly problem-centred, though there has to be a foundation of trust. I try to make it clear that I won’t refer to it again outside of that meeting, but of course the person seeing me is welcome to do so in the future if and when they need to. In practice the vast majority of meetings are not about faith or religion, though when they are, the point is the same as below: not to offer a pre-packaged solution, but to be present and accompany someone as they explore things with their own integrity."

Home Bursar & PREVENT Lead

Mike Naworynsky: mike.naworynsky@pmb.ox.ac.uk

You can contact Mike if you have medical or other requirements which may require adjustments to the College environment or normal routines, for example, the need for a room which accommodates a physical disability or changing how, when or where your meals are taken. 

Mike also acts as the PREVENT lead in College. PREVENT is one of the four strands of the Government's counter-terrorism strategy and it aims to ensure that public authorities ‘…have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism'. Pembroke College Governing Body, with the support of the JCR and MCR, have implemented the PREVENT policy by ensuring policies are in place (within College Regulations etc) which comply with legislation but are also ‘....not implemented in such a way that it overrides those existing rights without which the University of Oxford could not function as a place of higher learning. These existing rights include the rights to free expression, academic freedom, autonomy, confidentiality, privacy and equal treatment under the law – it is vital that the University continues to assert the importance of those rights.’

If at any stage you have any concerns about anyone in College who you are worried about in the context of radicalisation, or you want to discuss any element of the PREVENT Policy,  please contact Mike in confidence. More detailed information on how the PREVENT duty is implemented in Oxford University can be found here.
