Chancellor takes final bow from Essex University
THE chancellor of Essex University has stepped down after 10 years in the top job.
Lord Phillips of Sudbury leaves the role at the end of July after presiding over his final graduation on Friday.
During his time at the university he has congratulated more than 20,000 students, and at his last ceremony he told graduates it had been a privilege and his good fortune to serve as Chancellor.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Anthony Forster said: “Lord Phillips has played a key role in encouraging all at the university to strive for excellence and encouraging them to strive to reach their potential.
“In his period as our chancellor Lord Phillips has been a great champion for the university and served it with distinction.”
- Lord Phillips is the university’s fourth chancellor and arrangements will now be made to appoint his successor.
