Vice Chancellor at De Montfort University Resigns

The vice-chancellor of Leicester’s De Montford University, Professor Dominic Shellard, has resigned following the launch of an investigation by regulators. The Professor, who had led the university since 2010, quit after the Office for Students said it was looking into a number of “regulatory matters” at De Montfort. The vice chancellor had been receiving a whopping £350,000-a-year salary. We know for a fact that there are persistent anomalies on one course and we also know that a Freedom of Information request was not complied with within the required timescale, as it showed data that was damaging, in our view, to the integrity of DMU’s Quality Assurance. Regulatory concerns can have ramifications at the top end of all businesses.
