PLuS Alliance Inaugural Managing Director steps down from role August 2021

PLuS Alliance enters a new era
Thursday, August 5, 2021

The Inaugural Managing Director of the PLuS Alliance, Paul Ramadge has announced that he will step down after four years in the role.

Since the start of his tenure in 2017, Paul has strived to combine the complementary capabilities of three of the world’s leading universities – Arizona State University, King’s College London, and UNSW Sydney - to improve the world through solutions-focused research and dynamic education programs. He has been pivotal in fostering the PLuS Alliance’s mission to collaborate with industry, government, communities and, where possible, other higher-education providers. The PLuS Alliance represents a significant shift from traditional 1+1 university partnerships and memberships of national and international networks. 

We are only now starting to see the green shoots from all the preparation work over the last four years. One of the great achievements during Paul’s tenure has been the foundation of TEDI-London, the Alliance's joint flagship engineering education enterprise located in Canada Water, London, which will be welcoming its first cohort of students in September 2021.

Paul said,  “After completing four years as the inaugural Managing Director of the PLuS Alliance, I am ready to explore new opportunities. I'll miss the many talented people across Arizona State University, King's College London, and UNSW Sydney, but the time is right for a change. Thank you to so many people, inside and outside the PLuS universities, who have believed in the vision and have offered support. PLuS is an exceptional venture, made possible by university leaders who are constantly striving for excellence in a changing world. I wish it every success in the future”

Professor Sir Malcolm Grant, Chair of the PLuS Alliance stated, “It has been a huge pleasure working with Paul and observing first-hand his energy, judgement and professionalism. It’s a really challenging role, and he’s done it brilliantly, laying the foundations for an exciting future for the PLuS Alliance. We owe him a great deal for all his achievements.”
