Regent's Awards Beth Stroble Senior Honorary Fellowship
LONDON, JULY 3, 2013 - President Elizabeth J. “Beth” Stroble was named a Senior Honorary Fellow by Regent's University London last week, in recognition of the support Webster University has offered to the London-based institution of higher education.
Since 1994, Webster University has delivered degrees and study abroad programs in partnership with Regent's University London, enabling students to study in the UK and graduate with a U.S. degree from Webster. Webster first opened a London campus in 1986 and was the first university in that city to offer a U.S.-style MBA.
“On behalf of Webster faculty and staff who, with Regent's colleagues, make a world of difference for our students, I gratefully accept this award as a senior honorary fellow,” Stroble said. “I congratulate Regent's for achieving university status and am honored to join their celebration and the installation of their first chancellor, Professor John Drew.”
During the ceremony, which was held in London on June 29, Professor Aldwyn Cooper, Vice-Chancellor of Regent's University London, said that President Stroble's lifelong commitment to education and to developing an international perspective mirror qualities of Regent's University.
Honorary Fellowships were also awarded to Cornelia Meyer (economist and energy expert) and Sir John Gieve (former Deputy Governor at the Bank of England). During the ceremony, Regent's also installed its first Chancellor, Professor John Drew.
Regent's University is a private, non-profit institution based in the West End of London.
