Corpus bans OUCA

Corpus Christi’s Dean has banned students from holding Oxford University Conservative Association (OUCA) events indefinitely.

In an Email sent to the JCR and MCR on the 9th November, Dr. Rob in Murphy told students: “As part of my investigations into recent events involving guests brought into college we are now prepared to deny Oxford University Conservative Association (OUCA) permission to book or use any college facility or room for any OUCA related activity.”

“If permission has previously been granted for an event in the future, this permission is rescinded. The ban starts immediately and will run indefinitely,” he added.

The ban follows allegations of anti- Semitism and cronyism revealed by the Oxford Student last week, which attracted national press attention.

JCR President Jack Evans said: “This decision… is a reflection on how equal opportunities are central to the College. “
