Lecturers who make an impression and make a difference
Teaching is the lifeblood of the University. Staff who teach at Leicester are remembered for mentoring, advising and listening, supporting students with dedication and commitment, while demonstrating an infectious enthusiasm for their disciplines. “Inspirational” and “generous” and showing “kindness, friendship and professionalism” are just a few ways in which alumni describe them. They have adapted to changing academic, technological and societal environments and helped students to navigate the same.
Many lecturers, some deceased and many still teaching today, were nominated – far more than we could include. This entry celebrates their excellence in teaching that is remembered by thousands of students.
