Master of Selwyn College, Cambridge[edit] He also served as Master of Selwyn College, Cambridge
Selwyn College, Cambridge
from 2000 until 2012. During his time in office, he oversaw major expansion of Selwyn College, including the construction of Anne's Court and several neo-revivalist Victorian stone and brick buildings which designed by the controversial neo-classical architect Demetri Porphyrios.[7] During his tenure, Selwyn College became more oriented towards excellence in politics, history, and international studies.
