Robin Dollery — former Head of Student Services

May 10th, 2019

We are very sorry to inform that Robin Dollery — former Head of Student Services at the University of Nottingham — passed away in April.

Robin worked at the University of Nottingham for 15 years until his retirement in June 2014.

His role at the University saw him lead transformational change in the way in which day-to-day support for students in University accommodation and academic schools connected appropriately and effectively with central counselling and other wellbeing services.

In a career spanning 30 years he made an outstanding contribution to the development of student counselling and related support services – from the early days of its introduction to the significant role it plays in Higher Education (HE) today.

His services to higher education and student counselling led him to be presented with an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2015.
