A Canadian Anglican has been chosen to head one of the world’s most prestigious universities. Stephen Toope, who has served on a number of high-profile church bodies, was recently nominated as vice-chancellor of the University of Cambridge, according to the University of Toronto’s U o T News. Assuming the appointment will be approved by the university’s governing body, Toope will begin in his new role on 1 October 2017. He will be the 346th vice-chancellor in the university’s 800-year history, and is believed to be the first non-Briton to serve in the position.
