University Deans achieve national recognition as Principal Fellows HEA

Dr Gary Campbell (Dean of Science, Health and Engineering and Assistant Principal for Curriculum Enhancement) and Michael Rayner (Dean of Research) have become the university’s first Principal Fellows of the Higher Education Academy (PFHEA).

The important national recognition of PFHEA is awarded to individuals who can demonstrate substantial strategic influence in the development of higher education learning and teaching both institutionally and within the wider sector.

Gary and Michael successfully secured their Principal Fellowships as part of a wider initiative to help lead and embed the ALPINE framework within the university.

Their success follows other university colleagues achieving their own Associate Fellow, Fellow, and Senior Fellowships of the HEA in order to help support ALPINE as mentors and reviewers (something we previously posted about). We’ll soon have news on the first group of colleagues from the university to achieve HEA recognition through ALPINE itself.

In the meantime…

Congrats both!
