Dundee Univer­sity staff to re­ceive long-ser­vice awards

The Courier & Advertiser (Dundee Edition) - - NEWS -

Hun­dreds of staff at Dundee Univer­sity will join a long-ser­vice cel­e­bra­tion as part of the in­sti­tu­tion’s 50th an­niver­sary.

Around 200 staff who have worked at the univer­sity for 25 years or more, plus a se­lect band of 20 who have served for more than 40 years, will re­ceive a gift.

Among them will be the prin­ci­pal, Pro­fes­sor Sir Pete Downes, who is not only help­ing to present awards but re­ceiv­ing one him­self, hav­ing worked in Dundee since 1989.

He said: “The shared ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge of peo­ple who have been here for over half the life of the univer­sity can­not be un­der­es­ti­mated, and it is a sig­nif­i­cant fac­tor in build­ing the sense of com­mu­nity that is at the core of our strat­egy and di­rec­tion.”
