In aid of Mentally Fit York and the Emergency Student Support Fund

Heidi Fraser-Krauss will leave the University on July 20th to take up a new role as Executive Director of Corporate Services at the University of Sheffield; her last working day with us will be 23rd June.

Heidi has made an enormous contribution to the University of York since her initial appointment in 2012 and has been responsible for a range of university projects including the development and expansion of the University’s Information Strategy, overseeing the University’s preparations for a No Deal Brexit and leading the initial response to Covid-19.

I am sure you will join us in thanking Heidi for all her many contributions to York over the years and wish her the very best of luck in her new role at Sheffield. She will be greatly missed!

Heidi has advised that she would welcome donations to support mental health causes or student hardship in lieu of a gift. In light of these wishes, all donations to this page will be split between Mentally Fit York and the Emergency Student Support Fund.
