Following the news that Simon Hughes won’t be standing for Parliament again comes news of a new role for him at London South Bank University:
Simon Hughes said:
Over the past 30 years I have seen the very positive impact London South Bank University has had on the lives of thousands of local people. LSBU is a place that provides our communities with access to opportunity and delivers an excellent student experience to thousands every year.
As Chancellor, I will be able to combine my passion for education with my commitment to our south London communities. I’m greatly looking forward to helping to build on the University’s success which in recent years has seen LSBU rocket up the university league tables and be named University of the Year for Graduate Employment.
