Arden searching for first honorary Chancellor

Arden University is looking to appoint its first honorary Chancellor to represent the University in a ceremonial and ambassadorial capacity.

The chosen candidate will preside over the University's graduation ceremonies and actively contribute to enhancing the university’s reputation through activities that raise our profile regionally, nationally, and internationally. 

The ideal candidate will be someone displaying a strong personal commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion.

Embracing Arden University's values and mission is also crucial, along with recognising the significance of higher education and its potential to shape individuals’ futures.

Encouraging an inclusive approach, the wider University community, current students, and colleagues, are invited to nominate suitable individuals for the position. Once nominations are received, a Selection Committee will review and shortlist the suitable candidates. 

Selection Panel member Professor Dilshad Sheikh, Dean of the Faculty of Business and Deputy Pro Vice Chancellor (Academic), said:

‘Everyone across Arden is excited about the prospect of appointing our first honorary Chancellor.

‘We are looking for someone who embodies the institution's values while also inspiring students, alumni, and the wider community. The work in selecting the Chancellor will be meticulous as it is incredibly important that the chosen candidate will uphold the University's reputation and contribute to its continued growth and success. 

‘Involving the voices of our students is always important to us, which is why this nomination process is crucial. We can’t wait to see who our community nominates and look forward to welcoming the new honorary Chancellor.’
