Eddie Izzard named as president

[from the]

THE University of Sheffield has named Eddie Izzard as its Honorary President.
A new Honorary President is elected every three years – and Izzard takes over the role from the Dalai Lama.

The Honorary President is a symbolic role awarded to an inspiring individual with university links.

Izzard studied accounting and finance management at Sheffield University but left before completing his course. He was later awarded an honorary doctorate by the university in 2006. He also set up an alternative comedy society while in Sheffield.

Paul Tobin, Sheffield Students’ Union President, said: “He has close links to the university and is an inspirational character. He has visited us on numerous occasions over the years and hopefully we can get him back again to speak to the students.
