University Executive Group responsibilities

A recently agreed redistribution of some University Executive Group responsibilities takes effect from today.

Professor Hai-Sui Yu, who has been given the title Deputy Vice-Chancellor: International


The move, which was approved by Council, will help the senior team tackle challenges ahead with rigour and a clear understanding of priorities, based on the needs and aspirations of students and staff.

Amongst other changes, Pro-Vice-Chancellor: International, Professor Hai-Sui Yu, is now given the title Deputy Vice-Chancellor: International. This reflects the wide range of responsibilities he now undertakes in the UK and overseas.

Another key feature is that, in addition to his direct accountability for overseeing the effective operation of the University, the Chief Operating Officer (COO), Dr Tim Peakman, now has responsibility for student operations, information management and technology, change management, marketing, communications and facilities. The reporting line for relevant directors is being altered to reflect this new portfolio. The COO is also leading for the UEG on the development of the University’s post-2020 strategy and vision

The membership of the UEG will remain the same.

The full details of the changes can be found in Council paper CL/17/82.
