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.’
