Encyclopedia > Vice Chancellor

A Vice-Chancellor (commonly called the VC) of a university in the United Kingdom, other Commonwealth countries, and some universities in Hong Kong, is the de facto head of the university. Strictly speaking, he is only the deputy of the Chancellor of the university, but the Chancellor is usually a famous person who acts as a ceremonial figurehead, e.g. the Chancellor of Cambridge University is HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, while the Vice-Chancellor acts as the day-to-day chief executive. In the United States, the role of the Vice-Chancellor is fulfilled by the University President.

The Lord Chancellor's deputy in the Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice is also known as the Vice-Chancellor.

In German and Austrian politics, the Vice-Chancellor (Vizekanzler) is the deputy of the Federal Chancellor (vice Prime Minister). Especially in a coalition government, this is the most important job besides the chancellor.

Presently these two vice chancellors are Joschka Fischer (Germany, Green Party, since 1998) and Hubert Gorbach (Austria, FP, since 2003).
