Ser­vice to univer­sity recog­nised

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

HUN­DREDS of staff at the Univer­sity of Dundee were to­day join­ing in a cel­e­bra­tion for the in­sti­tu­tion’s 50th an­niver­sary.

The univer­sity’s first long ser­vice awards were or­gainsed to cel­e­brate the con­tri­bu­tion made by staff from across the cam­pus com­mu­nity.

Around 200 staff who have worked at the univer­sity for 25 years or more were to re­ceive a gift.

Even more ven­er­a­ble are a se­lect band of 20 staff who have been with the univer­sity for 40 years or more.

Tal­lied up, the com­bined ser­vice of all those at­tend­ing the cel­e­bra­tion is more than 7,000 years.

Univer­sity prin­ci­pal pro­fes­sor Sir Pete Downes was not only help­ing present awards but re­ceiv­ing one him­self.

He said: “As a fel­low re­cip­i­ent of the long ser­vice award I am de­lighted to be join­ing to­day’s cel­e­bra­tions with so many of my col­leagues.”

The awards were held at the Apex Ho­tel at City Quay.
