UWS Appoints New Dean of the School of Media, Culture and Society

The University of the West of Scotland (UWS) has announced the appointment of Professor Dominic Elliott as the new Dean of the University’s School of Media, Culture and Society.

Professor Elliott, who takes up the post on 1 July 2018, brings with him extensive senior leadership experience, most recently as Dean (Interim) at the University of Liverpool’s School of the Arts, as well as previously holding the positions of Interim Director of the University of Liverpool’s Management School and Associate Dean (Education) of the Management School.

Prior to joining the University of Liverpool in 2002, Professor Elliott was a Senior Lecturer in Strategic Management at the University of Sheffield. From 1991 until 1999, he held a number of academic posts at De Montfort University.

During his time at the University of Liverpool, Professor Elliott played a leading role in establishing a thriving Management School, achieving AACSB accreditation and entering the top 100 global rankings for MBAs.

He has long standing research interests in organisational learning from crisis and failure, in contexts as diverse as football stadia disasters, the finance sector and child protection.

I am excited to have this opportunity to work with colleagues at UWS, within a truly value driven university.

The winners of the AUDE Awards for 2024 were announced at the association’s annual conference at Northumbria University on 17 April 2024. As ever the standard of the nominations was so strong, and to find one winner amongst such high quality submissions was extremely tough for our judges. Nevertheless a winner there must be, and in eight categories! Every single participant should be very proud, for the work done as well as the initiative and energy and drive shown, and we hope they will feel boosted for the whole of the coming year by the acknowledgement from their peers of the great work involved. Gold, silver and bronzes prizes were awarded as shown below
