Congratulations to Dame Louise

We  were delighted to learn that Professor Louise Richardson, Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University, has been recognized by HM The Queen in her Birthday Honours today. Dame Louise, as she has now become, has been a much-appreciated longstanding supporter of SFOU and she will be greatly missed when she steps back from her position at the end of the year.
