Newman University seeks a new Chancellor
Following the arrival in March of Professor Jackie Dunne as its Vice-Chancellor, Birmingham’s Newman University is seeking to appoint a new Chancellor.
Newman University, which has around 2,700 students, is one of the country’s first Catholic universities since the Reformation It plays a distinctive role in higher education, focusing on the growth and development of the whole person and creating adaptable individuals, where faith, personal development and educational attainment are viewed equally. The University is working to create a sustainable campus and has Fairtrade status, based on the values of respect for others, social justice and equity.
The Chancellor is the ceremonial head of the University, an ambassador and advocate for Newman, who will attend graduation and other events as a communicator and model of Newman University’s values. The new Chancellor will be a person who is a duly-qualified Roman Catholic, who has made a contribution to national life and who reflects the values of the University embodied in the work of Pope Francis: tolerance, respect, a mission of service and a welcome to those of different- and no-faith backgrounds.
