Roderick Watkins appointed Anglia Ruskin Vice-Chancellor
Professor Roderick Watkins was recently appointed as the Vice-Chancellor of Anglia Ruskin having been closely involved in developing the university’s ten-year strategy.
One of his key tasks as Vice-Chancellor will be to progress the university’s education strategy, which has a clear ambition to foster social mobility – ensuring that an individual’s future must not be defined by their postcode, family income or school, but by their potential. Professor Watkins said:
I am absolutely delighted. Anglia Ruskin is a truly outstanding community of staff, students and partners, with an uncommon sense of purpose and ambition. We have the ability to be a powerful force for change and social good right across the East of England. It’s a great privilege to help shape and focus that energy for the future.
