21 November 2014
Cardew is stepping down as LSBU's Pro Vice-Chancellor (Students and Education),
and will join Leeds Beckett University - previously Leeds Metropolitan - as Deputy
Vice-Chancellor (Academic) on 1 April 2015.
Cardew joined LSBU in 2006 and holds a first class BA (Hons) English from the
University of Southampton and a PhD from the University of Leeds. Prior to his role at LSBU, he was Assistant
Vice-Chancellor at the University of Winchester and worked extensively for the
Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) in the UK, as well as undertaking institutional
review activity in Oman and Australia.
recently, Professor Cardew has been pivotal in LSBU signing
a Memorandum of Understanding with multinational technology and consulting
company IBM to offer students exposure to cutting-edge thinking and practices
from the world of business and technology.
Cardew said: "My time at LSBU has been extremely rewarding and I am very proud
of the work the University has done in order to enhance the experience of students
and, in particular, to provide better facilities for student support. It will
be a great pleasure to join the team at Leeds Beckett, and I am looking forward
to re-establishing my relationship with the city where I had three happy years
in the early '90s."
