Professor Dame Madeleine Atkins
Dear NCUP colleagues,
I am delighted to announce that Professor Dame Madeleine Atkins has agreed to be our speaker at the next NCUP luncheon, to be held on Thursday 21st May, 2020.
Professor Atkins’s background includes reading Law and History as an undergraduate at Cambridge University (Girton College), teaching in a large comprehensive school in Huntingdon, and completing a PhD and post-doctoral research contracts at the University of Nottingham.
Following various senior positions at Newcastle University, including Pro-Vice-Chancellor, she was Vice-Chancellor of Coventry University between 2004 and 2013. She then joined the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) as its Chief Executive in January 2014 retaining that post until March 2018.
Most recently, Professor Dame Atkins has been been appointed for a seven-year period to lead Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge in its mission to provide excellent education at the highest level and quality.
I think that we will all agree that she is an excellent choice to speak at our luncheon.
Please put the date in your diary and I hope to see you there!
Professor Terence Davis OBE
