We are delighted to announce that Pat Lofthouse has joined the Laidlaw Scholarship as Chief Executive Officer.

Pat, who brings with her over 10 years of senior experience in Higher Education, most recently worked as Director of Human Resources at the University of York.

She said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as CEO of the Laidlaw Research and Leadership Programme. The vision of this programme to see talented and motivated undergraduates fulfill their potential and reinvest their knowledge, skills and experience in ways that positively benefit others is very important to me. I look forward to expanding the programme and working closely with the member universities to build an international network of future leaders.”

Pat joins the Laidlaw Scholarship at an exciting time. Already in place at six top UK universities, the programme is about to expand internationally and is looking to bring on board universities in Dublin, Hong Kong and New York in 2018.
