Welcome to the University

As Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Glasgow Caledonian University, I’d like to welcome you.

We are a great place to work and study, with a commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion in everything we do. We deliver a great experience and transformational education for our students, and our research addresses the challenges of our time.

At our heart, Glasgow Caledonian is a civic university that exists because of the needs of the populations and society that we serve. Key to the University’s impact are our trusted partnerships across the wonderful city of Glasgow, the region, Scotland, and the world.

Glasgow Caledonian University exists to make a difference - we transform lives. I am committed to our focus on widening access to higher education, and to providing life-changing opportunities to our students. I am also committed to our research, focusing on areas where its application makes a positive difference, often in interdisciplinary fields.

Glasgow Caledonian is a success story, with a clear purpose and commonly held values.  We are ambitious, focused, and confident in how we work, deliver high-quality education and research, with close connections to employers and businesses.
