“It is a university that is rightly admired for its warm welcome, the added value which it gives to students and its overall ambition. I am particularly grateful for the welcome which I have received.
“A significant evolution is also well underway. Whilst our purpose is to help our students fulfil their potential, I will seek opportunities to achieve integrated, informed and responsive systems, processes and services for the community as a whole.
Clare will provide the University with a greater capacity to focus on and improve the many systems and processes which are used every day to interact with our students.
