The first month

The first month

I have not posted for a while, partly this is due to being busy and partly because the hotel wifi is not always great. Briefly on that subject I realise that I have spent almost 4 months in hotels in the last year, various quarantines, the long trip back to Hong Kong and now a month so far here. But mainly I haven’t posted because I am not sure what to say. It is not clear that I will be doing the job that I came here to do, I was offered the job of Provost but that seems to have receded. The role of advisor to the VC is interesting and very varied, I will see what can be made of it. So far I have been asked to look at University Governance, the General Education programme, how to improve rankings (more on this later perhaps), and the structure of the university. So it is far from dull!
