The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge will deliver the inaugural Kate Pretty Lecture at 5.30pm on Friday 17 February 2017 at Homerton College. The Lecture is open to all; however you must register via our website to attend –

As it prepares for a change of leadership, the University of Cambridge is in a uniquely strong position. It is more diverse than ever before. Its levels of engagement –local, national, global—are unprecedented. It is financially resilient. All of which allows it to fully realise its mission: to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence.

The challenges Cambridge faces, however, are formidable. Not least of them will be the question of how to continue thriving despite the UK’s exit from the European Union. At a time when public trust in experts is allegedly eroded, what is the role of an institution whose mission is to create knowledge and share expertise? How can the University of Cambridge help the city and the region meet the challenges of economic growth? And what impact might the proposed transformations of the higher education landscape have on the University’s ability to deliver world-leading teaching and research?

Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz FRS , the University of Cambridge’s 345th Vice-Chancellor, will address these issues as he delivers Homerton College’s inaugural Kate Pretty Lecture on “The Cambridge of Tomorrow”.

The lecture will be followed by a canapé reception for all attendees. Parking will be available in the Visitors’ Car Park at the end of Harrison Drive.

This talk is part of the The Inaugural Kate Pretty Lecture series.
