Cambridge University appoints new VC

In two moves, one vaguely surprising (appointing a woman, seeing as they don't have many internally) and one vaguely not (appointing from overseas), Cambridge has named the Vice Chancellor who will be succeeding Sir Alec Broers:

Cambridge University is to appoint the first woman "chief executive" in its 800-year history, the Guardian has learned. The university is expected to announce next week that Alison Richard, a British academic and Cambridge graduate who is provost of the ivy league American university Yale, will become its new vice-chancellor. [more (via Education Guardian]

Coming on the back of the news of the surprisingly successful demonstrations at Cambridge against top-up fees (I was talking to a few friends about this, and were were singularly impressed at the number who took part, which isn't really typical of apathetic middle class Cambridge students, and the reaction of the university), I'm really quite happy about how the university is doing. Hopefully Professor Richard can shake things up a little more.
