Good morning. It is an enormous privilege to act as Vice-Chancellor while the international search for Professor Paul Johnson’s successor is underway.
I know 2016 has had many challenges, and we still have a lot of important work to complete, including finalising and implementing our new academic and professional services structures. I ask for your continuing support as the year comes to a close and we conclude this work together. May I take this opportunity to express my sincerest gratitude for your engagement and all the hard work you have done.
I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge Paul’s service to the University. Paul has led the University for nearly 5 years, and during a period of significant change and many challenges. I am sure you will join me in wishing him and his family all the very best.
Prof. Dawn Freshwater
