A number of staff have officially retired this year and their contributions have been recognised by the University. Those who were able to attend Senate Dinner earlier this month were acknowledged by the Vice-Chancellor.
All those retiring have left their mark on the University at both a professional and personal level. Whilst many will return on a part-time basis to continue their research or assist in teaching, all are officially thanked at this point for their service.
For brief biographical details of this year's retirees, in alphabetical order, please see the presentation.
