New structure for a new academic year


The University’s faculty-based structure was formally introduced on 1 August. The management and administrative responsibilities of some 30 resource centres have been moved to nine faculties – each led by a dean – which will receive and redistribute teaching and research resources, according to their own constitutions. As much administration as possible will be carried out with professional support at faculty level.

The development of the new structure will be overseen by a new faculty management coordinating committee, chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for research. The committee will also ensure good practice is shared and advise ADC on the allocation of resources to faculties.

Eight deans have been appointed; Pro-Vice-Chancellor for staff Professor Diane Shorrocks-Taylor is acting dean of education, social sciences and law pending a permanent appointment. Significantly, LUBS is now an independent faculty following the division of the former research school and faculty for business, law, education and social science.

The faculty deans are: Professor Peter Mackie, earth and environment; Professor Steven Scott, mathematics and physical sciences; Professor Roger Pollard, engineering; Professor Stephen Burkinshaw, performance, visual arts and communications; Professor Keith Holland, biological sciences; Professor Andrew Lock, LUBS; Professor Ed Hillhouse, medicine, dentistry, health and psychology and Professor Margaret Atack, arts and humanities.
