Highlands and Islands
THE UNIVERSITY of the Highlands and Islands has appointed three new vice-principals.
The vice-principals will dedicate two and a half days a week to supporting the aims of the university and will fulfill the duties of their existing roles at colleges and research institutes on a part-time basis.
West Highland College UHI principal Lydia Rohmer was one of the three new appointments.
She is responsible for ensuring that all aspects of the tertiary nature of the university’s education provision are optimised.
Professor Stuart Gibb, director of the Environmental Research Institute at North Highland College UHI, was also selected to take up the role.
He will focus on developing the university’s international strategy.
And Iain Macmillan, principal of Lews Castle College UHI, will work to identify areas that can be improved and shared across the partnership.
The university’s principal and vice-chancellor, Professor Clive Mulholland, welcomed his new colleagues, saying: ‘We have strengthened our senior management team with these excellent appointments from across our region and I look forward to seeing the positive contributions each will make to the development of the university.’
