Sometimes you see something and go: “that’s wicked”! OK, maybe you don’t associate saying that with something related to a University or a Vice-Chancellor. But this is a story of exactly that! The Vice Chancellor of De Montfort University Professor Dominic Shellard has taken up a mission to organise the world’s largest flashmob event to support local charities.
Now, we know almost all universities do something or the other for charity so what’s new?
Well, we have Professor Dominic Shellard in a video(!) shot in a James Bond style (or any of your favourite spy style).
It’s cool, it’s new, and it makes me go: “that is wicked”!
“I have accepted the challenge to lead a lipdub/flashmob video on our campus in November 2012. I am inviting people from Leicester, and DMU staff and students, to be part of this challenge. Whilst raising money for a very worthwhile cause, we can also have a go at a world record attempt.
So, save the date, Wednesday 7 November 2012 and come along to Magazine Square to help us do something amazing for charity.”

To be honest, we are not surprised. When in February I got to know that Professor Dominic Shellard is one of the 50 ‘Britain’s New Radicals’, I followed DMU VC to see the social interaction and networking. Along with the new ideas and plans that DMU is currently working on, I will be honest, I wish I was part of it.
Anyways, enjoy the video below.
We will be supporting this initiative and advertising it to all our readers. We support the event and the fact that DMU VC has tried to do something different.
Professor Dominic Shellard, if you are reading this: Thank you for organising this event!
The event will go a long way in revitalising the way students look at universities.
