Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A UNIVER­SITY’S sec­re­tary has been recog­nised in the Queen’s Birth­day Hon­ours List for her ser­vices to higher ed­u­ca­tion.

Mau­reen Boylan, from Che­sham, who works at the Univer­sity of Lon­don, has been made a Mem­ber of the Or­der of the Bri­tish Em­pire (MBE) for her ser­vices to higher ed­u­ca­tion.

Af­ter early ca­reer jobs in the Univer­sity of Sheffield, CNAA and the Roe­hamp­ton In­sti­tute, Ms Boylan joined the fed­eral Univer­sity in Jan­uary 1990 as head of stu­dent ad­min­is­tra­tion and aca­demic plan­ning at Royal Hol­loway.

Sub­se­quently she has worked in six other fed­eral Col­leges in­clud­ing se­nior roles in Gold­smiths, Heythrop and the School of Phar­macy, where she jointly di­rected Phar­macy’s merger into Univer­sity Col­lege Lon­don, and for a pe­riod in UCL it­self.

She has also worked in two dif­fer­ent roles for the Ca­reers Ser­vice, in­clud­ing re­spon­si­bil­i­ties for ca­reers guid­ance at the Univer­sity of Lon­don’s School Of Ori­en­tal and Asian Stud­ies and King’s Col­lege.

Ms Boylan joined the cen­tral Univer­sity of Lon­don ad­min­is­tra­tion in 2012 as deputy univer­sity sec­re­tary and be­came univer­sity sec­re­tary in 2014 where she heads the gov­er­nance, le­gal, sec­re­tar­iat and com­mu­ni­ca­tions sec­tions of the vice chan­cel­lor’s of­fice.

Vice-chan­cel­lor Pro­fes­sor Sir Adrian Smith said: “On be­half of the Univer­sity of Lon­don, I was de­lighted to learn of this hon­our.

“I send warm con­grat­u­la­tions to Mau­reen for this de­served recog­ni­tion of her work.

“Mau­reen has been a huge sup­port to the Univer­sity of Lon­don for many years, both through her ex­cel­lent work in many of the col­leges but also, more re­cently, in her role in the cen­tral ad­min­is­tra­tion, where her con­tri­bu­tion to the strate­gic de­vel­op­ment of the univer­sity is much ap­pre­ci­ated.“
