Celebrating Professor Nigel Harrison’s Leadership Journey: A Warm Thank You and a Very Happy Retirement!

The Student Leadership Programme team would like to thank Professor Nigel Harrison, currently Pro Vice Chancellor & Dean at Anglia Ruskin University, for his support to the Programme over the years, contributing to shape our future healthcare leaders.

Now retiring, Nigel has played a fundamental role in the Programme since its inception. He was actively involved in the research and motivation that led to the establishment of the Student Leadership Programme, conducting a thorough survey of over 300 healthcare students to analyse gaps in leadership learning in pre-registration healthcare education.

Nigel has been the Chair of the Student Leadership Programme’s Advisory Group, helping to continue to co-produce the programme with stakeholders from across the healthcare sector, including ensuring students and #150Leaders alumni are involved in developing and improving the Student Leadership Programme. Nigel’s commitment and dedication extended to supporting and chairing most of the #150Leaders events, as well as generously sharing his own leadership journey and inspiring students.

The whole Student Leadership Programme community would like to wish Nigel all the best in his future endeavours and a very happy retirement!
