Meeting of Court 2017
21 February 2017
The meeting of the University's Court on Friday 3 February 2017 was very well-attended with the highest turnout in recent years. Members of Court gathered for refreshments before the meeting started and it was pleasing to see so many members of Court, including Emeritus Professors, former students and former members of the University Council, return to the University for the meeting.
Sir David Warren, Chair of the University Council, chaired Court; the Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Dame Julia Goodfellow, gave a presentation on the Annual Review 2016 and Bob Scruton, Chair of the Finance and Resources Committee, presented the Financial Statements for 2015/2016.
Professor Jane Reeves, Co-Director of the Centre for Child Protection, gave a presentation on innovation in teaching and learning, the success of the award-winning Centre for Child Protection, which was very well-received.
It was the Vice-Chancellor and President's final meeting of Court before her retirement, scheduled for August 2017, and Sir Julian Brazier, MP for Canterbury and Whitstable, thanked her for her outstanding achievements and extremely successful period of leadership.
