Mark Peel, currently the Pro-Vice Chancellor (Student Experience) and formerly the Head of the College of Arts, Humanities and Law, will take up the new role of Provost from August 1, 2015.

This is a new role, which emerged as part of a rethinking of the senior leadership team led by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Paul Boyle. A full job description is available to read here.

As Provost, Mark will focus on the implementation and evaluation of our Strategic Plan, including our approaches to planning and resourcing, estates and infrastructure strategies, regional engagement, collaborations between and across colleges, and internal communications.

Mark said: “This is a very broad and challenging role, which addresses many of the key issues about institutional strategy, communication and collaboration raised by colleagues in the strategic conversation and for which I feel that my experience at Leicester and elsewhere stands me in good stead. The focus on career and leadership development speaks to a particular passion of mine and I am proud to contribute to our more and more energetic work on equalities and diversities.”

As a result of Mark’s move, the role of Pro-Vice Chancellor (Student Experience) will be advertised in the very near future. This will be an internal advertisement and an all staff announcement will be sent inviting colleagues to apply.
