Professor Jane Harrington has been appointed as Vice-Chancellor of the University of Greenwich. This comes after a long period of recruitment which began when Professor David Maguire announced his intention to retire at the end of 2019.

The University recruited with the involvement of staff and students throughout the process.

Meike Imberg, Greenwich Students’ Union President 2017-2019 was a key part of the selection process and had this to say:

‘After the first few mins of meeting her, I knew she had to be the new Vice Chancellor of the University. It’s been an exciting experience to be part of the process, and I have every faith she’ll ensure Greenwich continues to transform. I know that she’ll champion the SU from day one. I’m very excited to watch Greenwich’s journey from the sidelines, and I know that staff and students will love her.’

Professor Harrington has worked in Higher Education for over 25 years and her specific interests include teaching excellence, the student experience, widening access into higher education and social mobility and improving partnership working across the business and university sectors. 

Professor Harrington, who is currently Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost at the University of the West of England (UWE), will join the university in early December.

The appointment was approved by the University’s Governing Body at its meeting on 27 June 2019.

On her appointment, Professor Harrington says:

'I am really looking forward to working closely with you all, to ensure that we continue to deliver fantastic programmes that set you up for your future, and enable you to perform at your absolute best. I am passionate about working in partnership and look forward to meeting many of you as we continue to develop the partnership model across the university.'
