The School of Management at Royal Holloway, University of London, has been named as a patron of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee 2012 Souvenir Album published by St James’s House, official publisher to the Thames Diamond Jubilee Foundation.
The album is a limited edition ‘coffee table’ book celebrating Her Majesty’s 60 years as monarch, reflecting on highlights and world events during her reign. In addition, the book profiles some of the organisations who have shaped our world during this period.
In a chapter focused on further and higher education, the album includes a two page spread on the School of Management. The feature profiles the school and includes an interview with former Head, Professor Chris Smith, and a picture of the Thomas and Jane Holloway statue with the stunning Founder’s building in the background.
The album includes information about the Jubilee weekend and the global Jubilee tours, as well as the Queen’s life and aspects of British life including educational establishments, commerce and industry, tourism and charities.
Head of the School, Jeffrey Unerman said: “I am delighted that the school has featured as a patron in this highly prestigious souvenir album. Given that Royal Holloway was officially opened by Queen Victoria 125 years ago, it is great to see our royal connection is still very much evident. This is a very special opportunity for us to showcase the school’s achievements to a global audience.”
The publication is not on general sale but exclusive copies will be distributed to a national and international audience including Heads of States throughout the UN, MPs, senior Government officials, UK embassies overseas, universities, colleges and schools and leading CEOs. A copy of the album will be available to view in the Archives Reading Room – 3rd floor of Founder’s Library from next week.
The school’s ongoing commitment towards academic excellence and student satisfaction has been demonstrated in its recent 19 place rise in the Guardian University Guide 2013 taking it to 41st place out of 112.
