Head of Academic Administration

Karen Henderson

BA (Hons) English, MBA, Adv Cert in Governance

I have spent over 25 years working in senior administration and management in higher education; first at Ulster and then at Queen’s University Belfast where I had responsibility for academic quality assurance and governance.  I left Queen’s in 2018 to study for a Graduate Diploma in Theology at Union.  In August 2020 I took up the new post of Head of Academic Administration with the objective of preparing the College for its exciting future with a new undergraduate degree and a new five–year strategy.  I am a member of West Presbyterian Church, Bangor.
