Before joining Solent, Graham worked for 13 years at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) where he was Deputy Vice-Chancellor for the past five years. He initially worked as a Head of Department in Lancashire Business School before joining UCLan’s Senior Management Team in 2003 and held posts as Dean of Academic Development and Director for Cumbria.
