The Master of Balliol, Andrew Graham, announces that he will stand down on 30<sup>th</sup> September 2011:
‘In 2012/2013 Balliol will be celebrating its 750<sup>th</sup> Anniversary. In September 2012 I reach the full term of my Mastership of Balliol. Rather than staying until then, I have decided to step down a year earlier to give my successor a full year in post before the 750<sup>th</sup> gets under way.
I will be very sorry to stop but all good things must eventually end. Balliol is a remarkable institution, one that has given me huge personal fulfilment. To have been Master of Balliol has been not only a great privilege but extremely interesting and a tremendous pleasure – what a combination!’
