Vice-Chancellor Professor Shearer West congratulated everyone who has secured promotion over this particularly challenging year. She said:

“I am delighted to see the talent of our academic community recognised in this way, with promotions secured on merit across a wide range of disciplines, schools and faculties. I am particularly pleased to note further increases in the proportion of colleagues from black and minority ethnic backgrounds who have been promoted.

We will arrange celebration receptions in the new year for all colleagues who have secured promotions both this year and last year.”

Analysis of this year’s promotion round shows that the number of colleagues from minority ethnic backgrounds securing promotion increased by 2.3% percentage points – rising from 41 individuals in 2019/20 to 43 in 2020/21.
