On Tuesday 22 November 2011 I was honoured to be invited to Carlisle Cathedral to celebrate the installation of Professor Peter Strike.
Prior to becoming Vice Chancellor of the University of Cumbria Peter Strike was Professor of Genetics and Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research, Knowledge Exchange and Business Engagement) at the University of Sunderland.
With over 28 years of research and teaching experience at the University of Liverpool, we feel very privileged to have Peter join us at the University of Cumbria. This will not only enhance the University but it is great news for Cumbria too.
I'm sure everyone involved felt very proud – I certainly did.
