At a Congregation of the Fellows of King's College, Cambridge, held on Friday 15 th July, Dame Judith Mayhew Jonas DBE informed the Fellows that she is taking up her entitlement to sabbatical leave under the College Statutes and also informed them that she will be stepping down from her position as Provost of the College on 31 August 2006.

Dame Judith, who took up the post in October 2003, said "The strategic and managerial agenda of the College has now been reorganised successfully. I believe that the next stage in the College's development needs to be led by an academic. Accordingly, and in view of my other commitments, I have decided to give the College notice in good time of my decision to step down."

In an official statement, the Fellows said "Dame Judith has presided over a time of major change in the College, which has led to the formation of a new and forward-looking management team. All of us at King's wish Dame Judith success in her future career. We are pleased that she intends to retain her links with the College and in particular to continue to contribute to the College's development effort."

Dr Tess Adkins, as Vice-Provost, will assume Dame Judith's responsibilities whilst she is on sabbatical leave and a successor is sought, in accordance with the statutes of the College.
