Gonville & Caius College has appointed Dr Andrew Spencer as the new Senior Tutor, commencing in the autumn before Michaelmas Term 2019.
Andrew joins us from Murray Edwards College where he is currently Admissions Tutor. Prior to that, he was Admissions Tutor and Tutor at Christ’s College and before that a British Academy Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at Corpus Christi College. He is presently the Chair of the Admissions Forum for the University, and Director of Studies in History, History & Politics and History & Modern Languages at Murray Edwards. He is also an Associate Lecturer in History with particular research interests in politics, power and the constitution in medieval England, especially the 13th and 14th centuries.
As Senior Tutor, Andrew will lead the College’s teaching and tutorial arrangements to promote high academic standards and student well-being at Caius. Speaking of his appointment, Andrew said “I am delighted to be joining Gonville & Caius as Senior Tutor. Caians are rightly proud of the strengths and traditions of their College and I look forward to working with the fellows, students and staff to develop these in the future. Together we can help ensure that Caius is open to students with great potential from whatever background and that, when they arrive here, they will be educated and supported in the best College environment that Cambridge can offer.”
