The Vice Chancellor of Bishop Grosseteste University, Professor Muriel Robinson, has been appointed OBE for services to Higher Education, after featuring in the New Year Honours list 2013.

She said, "I feel overwhelmed by this honour and it is very humbling to be singled out in this way. I see this as an honour not just for me but for all the amazing teams of staff I have had the privilege to work with during my career." Professor Robinson joined BG as Principal in 2003, and became the first Vice Chancellor of Bishop Grosseteste University last year after the institution achieved official university status.
