Pro Vice-Chancellor - Global Engagement, Portsmouth University
Chris Chang has wide Commonwealth knowledge and experience, particularly with international students and this is of interest to the Board as it would like to expand its remit and membership to Commonwealth students.
Chris is responsible for providing strategic leadership in the development and implementation of an ambitious Global Engagement strategy for the University; for extending its global partnerships and reach; and in making the university’s high-quality brand of education even more accessible worldwide. A colleague said of him, “Chris has a wealth of experience delivering international activity in the higher education sector, which makes him an excellent addition to the senior management team at the university”. “With students from over 130 countries, we already benefit from a strong international culture.”
Before joining the University in September 2016, Chris was Pro Vice-Chancellor Corporate Marketing, International and Development Services at Anglia Ruskin University. He has over 20 years’ experience in the higher education sector and a background as a lawyer. He qualified as a Barrister in 1986 and began his career working as an advocate and solicitor at the High Court of Malaya, advising large corporate clients.
