Message from University of Leicester President & Vice-Chancellor Professor Nishan Canagarajah
I’m proud to be joining University of Leicester today as the new President and Vice-Chancellor. I was very impressed with the reputation of the University, the quality of the people and the facilities and the whole environment. University of Leicester has a great reputation for the research and education and my vision for University of Leicester is to be recognised as one of the top 20 universities in the UK, for the quality of the education and research in all major national and international league tables. One of the reasons I was attracted to University of Leicester it has a diverse like-minded community of students who share a passion to learn new things. I want to create an environment where students get the disciplinary skills they need but also all the other skills for them to be successful in whatever career they choose. Universities have the ability to transform lives and I truly believe in the motto of this institution, so that they may have life. I would like to make sure everyone who comes into contact with this institution their life will be transformed because of University of Leicester.
