Campus rumour[edit]

according to campus rumour, the architectural style is inspired by a traditional Italian hill village

Sorry if I'm being dim, but is this just a joke? -- Oliver P. 02:22, 10 Nov 2003 (UTC)

Unfortunately not -- it's true! It has been modelled after San Gimignano with its squares and towers. Although the 60s re-interpretation is probably not everybody's darling! I've re-inserted this indeed true information. (David Haardt)

New information or section: Queen Anniversary Prize[edit]

As you can see from my biography I work at the University of Essex and I am trying to observe Wikipedia's CREWE recommendations for proposing amendments to the article for the University of Essex. We've just been awarded a Queen Anniversary Prize and i wanted to highlight this.

Suggested text:

In November 2017, Essex was awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Fusther Education for "authoritative social and economic research to inform the policies of governments for the improvement of people’s lives"[1]. The award particularly recognises the international impact of the Institute for Social and Economic Research[2] at Essex. In 2009, Essex received a Queen's Anniversary Prize for "advancing the legal and broader practice of international human rights" [3] for the work of the Human Rights Centre at Essex[4]. --Ben Hall at Essex (talk) 00:18, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

New section: Regius professors at the University of Essex[edit]

As you will note from my profile I work in the Communications Office of the University of Essex. I am keen to provide information which will improve the entry for the University of Essex and I am trying to adhere to best practice guidelines regarding this. I would love feedback on the text below.

Regius professors at the University of Essex

The honour of holding a Regius Professorship was conferred on the University of Essex by Her Majesty The Queen of England in 2013 to mark her Diamond Jubilee. The Regius Professorship was awarded to Essex for excellence in political science[1].

Essex's first Regius Professor of Political Science was British politics expert Professor David Sanders, from the Department of Government at Essex, who held the post from 2014[2] until his retirement in 2017.

In December 2017, Professor Kristian Skrede Gleditsch, was appointed as Essex's second Regius Professor [3]. Professor Gleditsch is an expert on peace studies and conflict resolution. Following the announcement Professor Steven Pinker, a Johnstone Family Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, said: “Kristian Skrede Gleditsch is a pioneer in a vitally important new discipline - evidence-based analysis of war and peace."[4].

Conflicts of interest[edit]

Some sections are looking more and more like university marketing material. I would suggest involved editors use the requested edit function before making large changes to this page. Aloneinthewild (talk) 12:07, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
