Sarum College has appointed Salisbury Cathedral’s first Canon Theologian to its Board of Trustees.

Described as “a wise and entrepreneurial priest”, Professor Jane Shaw recently took up the post of Principal of Harris Manchester College (which is for mature students) in the University of Oxford, where she is also a Pro Vice-Chancellor and Professor of the History of Religion.

Canon Emerita of Salisbury Cathedral, Professor Shaw said:
"I have long admired Sarum College's innovative approach to adult education: its encouragement of those who are seeking to develop a spiritual life alongside the life of the mind; its engagement with the arts and a wide range of ideas; and its deep sense of community rooted in the Cathedral Close.

“I very much look forward to serving as a trustee, and to continuing my links with Salisbury in this way.”

The Revd Canon Professor James Woodward, Principal of Sarum College said:
“Jane Shaw is a wise and entrepreneurial pries who brings to the governance of Sarum College a breadth of experience in both academy and church.

“She is especially committed to adult learning and putting theology to work for human flourishing. We look forward to working with her and learning alongside her for this next stage of the life of Sarum College.”
