Pro-Chancellor (Students)


As a result of the campaign by students and Officers triggered by the appointment of David Willetts as Chancellor of the University the University agreed to introduce a Pro-Chancellor (Students).   

The Pro-Chancellor (Students) will act as an ambassador and advocate for students at all levels and modes of study, attend student-facing events at the University, work with students and Officers of the Students’ Union and attend degree congregations.

We are now seeking your views on who you think would make a good Pro-Chancellor (Students).

We want to know:

  • Who influences you? Famous Leicester faces? Who inspires you?
  • Who would you like to invite to your graduation ceremonies?

To put forward your suggestions simply complete a simple online form here

The deadline to submit your suggestions is Friday 30 November 2018.

A panel of student representatives will shortlist nominations and the successful candidate will be announced following an election which will be open to all students in February 2019.
