Letter from the Editor

I hope you enjoy reading the new look From Salford. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this year’s edition with their news and stories and a warm welcome to our class of 2011 graduates. It has been a busy year for the University and there has never been a better time to be associated with Salford as we embark on a number of exciting developments. These include the launch of our new brand and visual identity, the opening of our state-of-the-art facilities

at MediaCityUK and the start of our most ambitious campus redevelopment to date, which will see £130m invested in state-of-the-art buildings and facilities to benefit our students, staff and the organisations with which we work in partnership.

Thanks to Caroline Boyd, Robert Caddy, Rahela Choudhury, Liam Curtis, Richard Hacking, Joanne Handford, Patti Holmes, Anthony Hopkinson, Steve Lowy, Mary Macfarlane, Janet Moorhouse, Gareth Pettit, Ray Philpott, Udeni Salmon, Catherine Snelson and all of our contributing alumni.
