Vice Chancellor knighted at Buckingham Palace


November 13th, 2014

Professor Sir David Greenaway, Vice-Chancellor of The University of Nottingham, received his knighthood from Her Majesty the Queen on Tuesday 11 November.

The investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace followed the announcement of Sir David’s knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2014.

Sir David, who received the honour in recognition of his achievements in higher education and public service, was accompanied by his wife, Susan, sons, Stuart and Dan, and daughters-in-law, Caroline and Georgina.

He said the occasion was “inspiring and humbling”, adding:

“It is an enormous privilege to lead the University and my day at Buckingham Palace is just as much an honour for Nottingham as it is for me.”

Professor Sir David Greenaway has led the University as Vice-Chancellor since 2008 and made a significant contribution on the national and international stage, both within the education sector and in broader public life.
