Robert Sherratt

Head of Student Experience

Robert Sherratt graduated from university with a BA in Geography and a Masters in Information Systems and has worked in higher education for twenty years in three institutions and a wide range of jobs. He has been at the University of Hull for the last fifteen years; his current role is Head of Student Experience working for Library and Learning Innovation. This is a departure from previous roles working in IT, moving away from responsibility for specifying and implementing the technology required to provide solutions to working with the users of the systems, particularly students and faculty, on what solutions should be offered.

Robert has also served on the Jasig Board and represented Jasic during merger talks with the Sakai community and is currently serving on the Apereo Board. He also has been acting as the Board liaison for the uMobile project helping lead the project through its successful Phase 1 and onwards to the just started Phase 2.
