Last Friday (22 July) the Fellows re-elected Professor Ross Harrison as Provost of the College for a second shorter term. He will now serve until 31 July 2013.
The College’s original plan was to replace Prof Harrison when his current appointment concludes in December. But after further consideration it has now been decided to defer the advent of his successor until 2013.
Prof Harrison was originally elected for the relatively short tenure of five years and a term. He will now serve for nearly seven years. Provosts at Kings can serve up to ten years, but must retire at age seventy.
