Update from the President

Greetings from Richmond! I hope you will enjoy this new edition of our e-newsletter for alumni, friends and supporters of the University. Richmond has been faring very well indeed. I’m pleased to report that for the calendar year 2013 enrolment of degree seeking students went up by 52% in comparison to 2012. This increase in applications and student numbers is not restricted to specific areas, but is very much in keeping with Richmond’s international ethos with new students joining us from across the globe.

As alumni and supporters you may also be interested to learn that we are creating a University Court this year. This will be an opportunity for the University to engage with our various stakeholder groups within the Richmond, Kensington and Chelsea communities, and of course also with our former and current students, our partner organisations, as well as political and business leaders.

The purpose of University Court will be to provide advice to the University’s Board of Trustees on the future development of the University. It will also function as a means to maintain a close association between the University and those who know it well and have supported the University over the years, such as former faculty, alumni, donors and volunteers, Honorary Graduates, former Trustees and Academic Advisors. University Court will meet once a year and discuss all major strategic and operational areas of the University ranging from academic development and Student Affairs to Finances and Estates Management. Future editions of this newsletter will keep you informed of developments and how you may be able to get involved.

This year, I also look forward to meeting many of our former students at Richmond events in London, Dubai, Los Angeles, New York and Mumbai. Please check the events calendar for details and join us if you can.

Yours sincerely,

Professor John Annette
President and Vice-Chancellor
