Anglia Ruskin University has appointed Professor David Humber as a new dean for its newly-named Faculty of Health and Social Care, which is formed from the recent merger of the former Institute of Health and Social Care with the Homerton School of Health Studies.

The newly enlarged Faculty offers a wide range of courses including nursing and midwifery, and primary and social care. With over 8,000 students and a budget of £28 million, it is now the largest graduate provider of health education in the East of England.

Currently head of the School of Health and Bioscience at the University of East London, where he has held a variety of senior roles since 1997, Professor Humber will take up his new position in August.

In his current role at UEL, he has overseen significant growth and diversification of income streams, including a threefold increase in the recruitment of international students, and he has overseen capital projects and managed several major institutional reorganisations.

It is my belief that the new faculty has tremendous potential to build on these achievements to develop new and innovative programmes and research activities.”
