Professor Dominic Shellard steps down as Vice-Chancellor

After nine successful years, Professor Dominic Shellard is stepping down as Vice-Chancellor of De Montfort University Leicester (DMU), to pursue a range of new opportunities.

During his time at the university, Professor Shellard has overseen the transformation of DMU’s campus, conceived the award-winning #DMUglobal and Square Mile initiatives, ensured that the university is one of the most financially sustainable in the country and witnessed DMU being awarded the first ever University of the Year Award for Social Inclusion from the Sunday Times in 2018.

We wish to thank Professor Shellard for his valuable contribution to De Montfort University and we wish him well for the future.

The university’s work to provide an outstanding experience for all its students and to deliver its new Strategic Plan will continue under the leadership of Professor Andy Collop, DMU’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor, who will be the Interim Vice-Chancellor until further notice.

Professor Collop said that the university was in a strong position to continue to flourish and that he was looking forward - with the help and support of students, staff, alumni and partners - to building on its achievements and to delivering even greater success in the future.
