Professor Kevin Bonnett Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Experience)

Professor Kevin Bonnett took up the post of Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Experience) in June 2008. His role emphasises the importance the University places on how students experience MMU, particularly in a period where major changes in the student funding regime coincide with dramatic renewal in the University’s campuses and buildings, as well as in the portfolio of courses.  He has contributed to this by leading a major change initiative known as EQAL: this has involved the redesign of the whole undergraduate curriculum together with wide-ranging modernisation of student-facing systems and processes and radical improvements to the online learning environment and student portal.
