THE UNIVERSITY of Chichester has welcomed new governors to its board to give it more expertise in a range of areas.
Five of these are external governors who will bring wealth of knowledge of marketing, finance, IT and estates planning to the board.
Derek Jenkins, chair of governors, said: ‘I am delighted we have been successful in attracting new members to the board who bring such excellent skills and very relevant experience.
‘Universities need to draw more than ever on the collective contributions from staff, students as well as governors as institutions face the challenges of public sector funding changes.
‘Our new governors have already made a valuable contribution.’
The governors including the former chief executive of Havant Borough Council Robin Smith and company MDs began their roles at the beginning of this year.
