We are extremely proud to share the news of Professor Margaret Low (WMG), being awarded an MBE for her services to public engagement and widening participation. Professor Low has worked at the University for over thirty years and today works as WMG’s Director of Outreach and Widening Participation.
Commenting on her MBE and how it feels to be recognised, Professor Low said:
“It’s lovely, if a little overwhelming and totally unexpected, to be recognised in this way. Everything I’ve achieved has been in collaboration with fantastic colleagues and friends at WMG and across the University. None of this would have been possible without their hard work and dedication.
“I’ve also had the good fortune to work with some brilliant students through Warwick Volunteers who’ve been instrumental in bringing outreach activities into schools.”
Margaret became a WIHEA Fellow in 2017, we were delighted to celebrate her promotion to Professorial Teaching Fellow, by jointly hosting with her Inaugural Lecture with WMG on 9 May 2019. Throughout her Fellowship, Margaret shared her extensive experience and knowledge within Learning Circles and to support other Fellows. But also a significant contribution to the development of WIHEA, through her role on the WIHEA Advisory Group.
