University appoints Acting Vice-Chancellor; new members join Board of Governors

The University of Gibraltar has appointed Professor Catherine Bachleda as Acting Vice-Chancellor.

Professor Bachleda was formerly the Deputy Vice-Chancellor. Her appointment comes after Professor Daniella Tilbury left her post as the University’s Vice Chancellor & CEO; she’s become the Government’s first Commissioner for Sustainable Development.

There have also been changes to the University’s Board of Governors. The Director of the Gibraltar Museum, Professor Clive Finlayson, and the GHA’s Head of the School of Health Studies, Professor Ian Peate, have joined the Board.

GBC understands this follows the resignations of several board members, but the Government of Gibraltar and the University have not responded to questions submitted by GBC early last week.
