People meeting outside engineering

Senior members

All members of staff at Lancaster University are members of one of the nine Colleges. There are numerous ways in which you can get involved.

Staff are able to apply to become members of the College Advisor Team (CAT), Dean, Senior Advisor, Engagement Officer, or even Principal. All Senior Common Room roles report to the Principal and Fylde College Syndicate. You can also join in our many activities for staff that we hold throughout term.

Staff quiz

Each academic year, in Michaelmas term, senior members form the nine colleges take part in a inter-college quiz held during lunchtimes at venues across campus. The format is very much 'pub quiz', and all abilities are welcome. If you'd like to take part, do let us know, and we will add your to our team.

Fylde College syndicate meeting

College Syndicate

We usually hold our annual Syndicate meeting in October. Syndicate provides a useful forum in which senior members can discuss University matters and raise particular items of interest. It is attended by the College Officers, the JCR Executive and a few members of staff that don't hold a formal role. We're always welcoming to new faces! Any member of staff is eligible to come and find out what has been going on in College and the wider University over the preceding academic year.

Get involved!

We are always on the lookout for members to get involved. This can be anything from supporting the CAT team or helping out at graduation to taking on a senior position as Senior Advisor or Dean. To find out more, please do get in touch.
