We are pleased to welcome Dr. Hugh Horton to the Castle Community this month. On 12th June Hugh will be joining us as Vice Provost and Executive Director. Many of you will already know Hugh, as prior to being appointed our new VP&ED, he has for a number of years been our academic liaison with main campus and has made regular visits to the Castle.
You may have had a chance to meet Hugh when he last visited us briefly in April, and shared with us his vision of the future BISC. If you did not get the chance to chat to Hugh first time round, then now’s the time to brush up on your ‘elevator pitch’, as Hugh will no doubt be taking every opportunity to chat with his new colleagues and to find out how the organisation functions and what we all do! If you, in return, want to know a little more about Hugh and his journey to becoming VP&ED at the BISC, you can visit his current web page or, better still, ask him!
We know Hugh’s first few days with us are going to be busy, so if you don’t have a chance to deliver your carefully prepared pitch on day 1 (or 2 or 3), don’t despair. There will be opportunities aplenty in the six weeks Hugh will be on campus this summer. From 22nd July Hugh will return to main campus for a brief spell, and then will be back with us at the end of August to take up permanent residence before the start of Fall term.
I’m sure you will be happy to echo the The Drum when we say, ‘Welcome, Hugh! We look forward to working with you.’”
