University initiates formal review of Department of Archaeology

University shield

The University has initiated a formal review of the Department of Archaeology.

The review aims to develop a plan to bring the department’s finances back into a surplus over a five-year period.

It is led by the University’s Chief Strategy Officer and University Secretary, Richard Messer, and is expected to report to the University Executive Board in the spring term.

Richard said, “The Department of Archaeology delivers quality research and an enriching learning environment – receiving consistently strong student feedback and appreciation.  This review is not considering whether we should have a Department of Archaeology, which is a given, but rather will focus on how we continue to deliver high-quality teaching and research in a sustainable way. Our share of the market has not declined, but there is a gap between our income and expenditure and the review will help us address that”.

Members of the Review Group are:

  • Richard Messer, Chief Strategy Officer and University Secretary
  • Nick Branch, Head of School (SAGES)
  • Elizabeth McCrum (Teaching & Learning Dean)
  • Dominik Zaum (Research Dean)

The group will invite colleagues from the Department of Archaeology to contribute their thoughts and insights to help inform the plan that is presented to the UEB.
