Imran Khan- New Chancellor of University of Bradford
Former Pakistani cricketer & World-Cup hero Imran Khan is all set to begin a new innings as the Chancellor of the University of Bradford from December 7, 2005.
A senior official of the university said that Khan would succeed Baroness Betty Lockwood in the post. He will be the university’s fifth chancellor since its foundation in 1966.The chancellor’s post has a figurehead role, but appointing Khan to the high profile post is significant given that Bradford has a large population of Pakistanis. On December 6, 2005, Imran Khan will lay a foundation stone for the University’s new Institute of Cancer Therapeutics and confer degrees on Bradford graduates.
