Bader College at Herstmonceux Castle has welcomed Janine Griffiths-Baker as its new Vice-Provost and Executive Director to start off the new year.

Dr. Griffiths-Baker took up her position last week. She has also been appointed as an adjunct professor to the Faculty of Law at Queen’s University.

Dr. Griffiths-Baker joins Bader College from CILEx Regulation Limited, one of the largest legal regulators in England and Wales, where she was Chief Executive. She brings more than 25 years of experience in higher education, having held several leadership positions at various public and private institutions across the United Kingdom.

She will lead Bader College’s senior management team to deliver ambitious plans for the future of the college campus and the wider Herstmonceux Castle Estate. In addition to offering an outstanding study abroad opportunity for approximately 200 undergraduate students each year, Bader College sits on 600 acres of land containing medieval parklands, ancient woodlands, meadows, ponds, marshlands, and formal gardens.

“I was absolutely delighted to accept the role and I am incredibly excited at the prospect of leading Bader College into the future” Dr. Griffiths-Baker says. “I was drawn to the position by the extraordinary potential of the estate, as well as by Queen’s University’s exciting plans to expand its international footprint. I’m new to the area myself, but hope to form strong ties locally, as well as with our partners around the globe. I sincerely hope that under my leadership, Bader College becomes even more instrumental in bringing Alfred Bader’s vision for the Castle to fruition.”
