Preparing for change

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Alan Wilson, is taking a period of semi-study leave for the summer term in order to undertake research and development on behalf of the University, and prepare us for the major changes of the post-Dearing era.

He will be exploring options for the future academic development of the University, researching financial developments to support these academic objectives and considering management issues relating to the restructuring of the University. The Vice-Chancellor will also be working on the opportunities presented by the Western Campus development (the former Leeds Grammar School site) where Leeds University Business School is to be based.

Throughout this period, Professor Wilson will be maintaining close and regular contact with senior University personnel and will be attending a number of formal meetings and engagements, including meetings of Senate, Council and Court.
