Main news stories

  • From rock bottom to mountain top – at a run
    No one could accuse Hugh Lee of not rising to a challenge. He left school with no qualifications, but is now studying for a PhD. And now plans to run the world's highest marathon, from Everest base camp, raising money for Nepalese charities and a Harrogate care centre.
  • Giving rewards for exceptional work
    All staff can now apply for special payments as part of an initiative for rewarding and developing staff.
  • Leeds scoops top fashion awards
    University fashion students have been sweeping the board at nationwide fashion competitions this year.
  • Widening the pathway to HE
    A series of University events looking at widening participation will begin with a forum on April 15, with speakers from Universities UK, the University of Birmingham and the school of continuing education's Professor Richard Taylor.
  • Suits, shopping and billiard balls – we've got Leeds to thank for men buying clothes
    Shopping may be seen as a predominantly female activity, but with the growth of men's fashion stores and lifestyle magazines, it is fairly common to see blokes perusing the rails and queueing at the changing rooms.
  • Probing research to help sensitive teeth
    A new University spin-off company has been set up to develop and market a method of measuring tooth sensitivity.
  • Privacy, ethics and the media
    Racist reporting by tabloid newspapers hasn't helped the 'good name' of journalists, yet staff don't necessarily support their paper's stance.
