Registrar bows out after 17 years of service

The University’s Registrar and Secretary, Dr David Robinson, below, has announced that he is to leave his post at the end of this calendar year.

After 17 years at Leeds, he said, "the time has come for me to find new challenges."

Vice-Chancellor Professor Alan Wilson told members of Senate and Council: "David has contributed very considerably to the University’s management and development and I thank him for his support and his many achievements here. I am sure that everyone joins me in wishing him well for the future."

Dr Robinson first came to the University as an undergraduate and completed his PhD here in the School of History, returning to join the administration in 1983 after a period in the registry at the University of Sheffield.

A committee is to be established to advise on how the duties of his office might best be discharged in future.

See the Vice-Chancellors letter to Senate & Council.
