On September 25, the Matariki Network of Universities (MNU) launched a call for research seed funding. This funding will develop a stronger relationship between the Network partners in globally relevant fields of research.
The School has appointed Dr Ian Baggett, a prominent North East businessman and entrepreneur, to join the Departments of Finance, and Management and Marketing as a Professor in Practice, from September 2023.
The Professors in Practice initiative has been a staple of Durham’s educational delivery for more than six years. The initiative has become a vital means of ensuring the academic curriculum continues to both meet and reflect of the modern demands of industry and to help students build the right skills, perspectives and attitudes for the future.
We’ve renamed our city centre venue, the Assembly Rooms Theatre, in honour of our former Chancellor and world-renowned opera singer, Sir Thomas Allen.
The venue will now be known as the Sir Thomas Allen Assembly Rooms Theatre.
