PROFESSOR Tim Wilson has announced his intention to retire from his position as Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hertfordshire.
At the time of his retirement, on December 31, 2010, Professor Wilson will have completed 19 years and four months at the university.
He has been a leading figure in defining the role of a modern university as enterprising, entrepreneurial and business-facing. Through his ethos of putting students first, the University of Hertfordshire has successfully positioned itself as the UKs leading business-facing university with a clear focus on the employability of students.
Professor Wilson said, I have a great passion and belief in this university and the position of Vice-Chancellor is one that I have found rewarding, stimulating and fulfilling. The commitment and dedication of the staff at the University of Hertfordshire are immense and it is a great privilege to be Vice-Chancellor and to lead this institution.
The decision to retire at this time has not been an easy one to make, but after a bout of ill health and considerable thought and discussions with my family, I have made the difficult decision that my health must take priority.
