Professor Roger Pollard has been appointed
dean of the faculty of engineering, the first
under proposals for reforming the Universitys
on nine faculties, it is hoped the new structure
will facilitate collaboration and interdisciplinarity
and reduce the administrative burden on schools
and departments. Faculties will be federal,
unitary or hybrid as appropriate
with budgetary and management functions devolved
to schools. The resource allocation model
will divide resources between schools and
other constituents within faculties.
deans will promote detailed discussion within
faculties on how the proposals might best
be applied in their areas. They will answer
to Senate and Council for academic and general
management issues, and be supported by management
teams to be appointed and faculty
Andrew Lock will remain dean of LUBS and Professor
David Sugden has been appointed dean of medicine,
dentistry, psychology and health for a year.
The remaining deans should be in post by the
end of the year.
