Tribute to Paul Webley, University of London DVC

The University of London is deeply saddened to learn of the death of Professor Paul Webley, Emeritus Director of SOAS and the University’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor.

Paul Webley made a huge contribution to the central University over many years, leading on many groups and committees often dealing with the most challenging issues of the time.  Professor Webley was appointed Deputy Vice-Chancellor in April 2010. He was appointed Commander of the British Empire (CBE) for Services to Higher Education in the 2015 New Year’s Honours list.

He will be greatly missed as a colleague and friend by all who knew him.

Paul's family have requested that instead of floral tributes, donations be made to The Landmark Trust.  Paul had many happy memories of family holidays in their properties and was a keen supporter of their work.  Details can be found here:
