May 7, 2015

As things stand, only 20 of the UK’s 133 universities will be led by women from September.

The University of Derby recently announced that Kathryn Mitchell is to succeed John Coyne as vice-chancellor of the University of Derby, briefly bringing the total to 21, before Leeds Beckett University revealed that Peter Slee, currently deputy vice-chancellor of the University of Huddersfield, will succeed Susan Price when she retires at the end of August.

According to the Universities UK website, this means that from September, the institutions with a female vice-chancellor or principal will be: Aberystwyth University, Aston University, the University of Bath, Bath Spa University, Brunel University of London, the University of Derby, Edinburgh Napier University, Glasgow Caledonian University, Imperial College London, the University of Kent, Leeds Trinity University, the University of Lincoln, the University of Liverpool, the University of Manchester, Queen Margaret University, the University of Salford, the University of South Wales, the University of St Andrews, the University of Sunderland, and the University of Winchester.
