Bangor, Highlands and Islands vice-chancellors to retire in 2019

Bangor University’s vice-chancellor, John Hughes, has announced he will retire in August 2019 after nine years in the job. The University of the Highlands and Islands will need its next vice-chancellor at the same time.

Hughes, the university’s seventh vice-chancellor in its 135-year history, will remain in-post until his retirement. A search for his replacement will begin shortly.

Commenting on his retirement, the university’s chair of council, Marian Wyn Jones, said in a statement: “I am extremely grateful to Professor Hughes for his remarkable contribution. He has overseen tremendous change at the university, and has always ensured that students remain at the heart of everything we do.”
