The Queen has, in the 2018 New Year Honours List
(page N10), bestowed upon Professor James Arthur the title of Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for services to education.
In accepting the honour, James acknowledged the contribution of the Jubilee Centre team:
‘I am very honoured to be recognised in this New Year’s Honours List. To be awarded an OBE for my work in character education is also an acknowledgement of the incredible team in the Jubilee Centre at the University of Birmingham.’
James will attend a ceremony at Buckingham Palace in 2018 to receive the award from the Queen.
