Campus consultation on VC appointment


The search for the University's next Vice-Chancellor will be informed by campus-wide consultation and the broadest range of inputs about the individual qualities of the postholder, the committee on the Vice-Chancellorship has decided. It has also agreed that the trawl will be global, and that 'headhunters' will help the committee in its work.

The post is expected to be advertised later this month or next. Further particulars are being drawn up, and include qualities such as strategic vision, leadership and management skills, and a record of personal achievement so as to command credibility in an academic community.

All University members are invited to contribute their comments to the committee on the kind of appointment and qualities of the individual, or on any other aspect of the appointment. Suggestions can be made to the committee chair, University Pro-Chancellor David Ansbro ( or any committee member (see Campusweb news for the complete list).

The committee expects to make a recommendation to Council later this year or early next. Sir Alan Wilson retires in September 2004.
