A Teesside University academic has received recognition for his services to higher education. Dr Mark Simpson, Dean of the School of Social Sciences & Law has been awarded a Principal Fellowship from the Higher Education Academy. He is only the second academic from Teesside University to receive it.
Dr Simpson said:
“It is a great honour to receive the Principal Fellowship and something I am immensely proud of.
“This Fellowship is a reflection of the standards we have set and reinforces the high quality experience students can expect to receive here.”
As well as Dr Simpson’s success, three lecturers who all worked together before moving into academia have each received honours for their work.
Senior Lecturers in Medical Imaging Peter Walker-Birch, Robert Dash and Mark Widdowfield have been awarded Fellowships from the HEA.
