THE High Sheriff of Worcestershire has praised the University of Worcester’s vision and contribution to the city and county on a recent visit.
Andrew Manning-Cox, who took office in April, particularly highlighted some of the University’s recent developments which he visited, including The Hive, the University of Worcester Arena and City Campus, and their positive impact on the city.
His tour also included the Law School and the site of state-of-the-art teaching facilities for health students currently under development at Severn Campus.
Mr Manning-Cox was invited to visit the University to learn about its work and was met by Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive, Professor David Green CBE DL.
“This University is remarkable – a connected and thought through vision which has continued and evolved over time and has such a beneficial impact on all aspects of life in Worcester and Worcestershire and indeed on the national stage,” said Mr Manning-Cox.
“To have the vision to say ‘we’re going to grow from our nursing roots and have a new medical school, an arena designed with flexible facilities giving the disabled athlete as much priority as others and to grow to now more than 10,000 students; well it’s a great thing of which the county is rightly proud.”
