Gift of Time

Lemn Sissay

To mark the end of his tenure as our Chancellor, Lemn Sissay OBE has released a new poem, Gift of Time.

In it, Lemn celebrates the joy he’s found during his time at Manchester and praises our students, staff and alumni for their dedication, passion and making his journey so rewarding.

The University’s relationship with Lemn is set to continue as he becomes an alumnus and takes up a position as Honorary Chair in Creative Writing.
