Change of leadership at the School of Social Sciences
(6 October 2017)
At the recent School of Social Sciences (SoSS) Policy & Resources Committee, Professor Chris Orme reported that he had informed the Dean of his decision to step down from the role as Head of School with effect from 1 August 2018.
Chris said: “The early announcement will allow sufficient time to appoint a new Head of School, ensuring a smooth transition and a continued focus on the important work of the School. I sincerely hope that leadership will emerge from the Professoriate within the School so that the Dean is not obliged to look elsewhere.”
Chris was appointed as Head of School in 2014.
