New Rector for University of Aberdeen

New Rector for University of Aberdeen

Robin Harper has been elected to serve as Rector of the University of Aberdeen.

The Green MSP begins his new three-year tenure this July. Mr Harper was standing for Rector against Hamish Mackay, a local media consultant. Students voted 326 to 205 in Mr Harper’s favour.

The results were announced tonight (May 12) by Professor Stephen Logan, University Senior Vice-Principal.

Mr Harper said: “I’m absolutely delighted. I have a long connection with Aberdeen since I graduated from the University in 1962 and there has not been a year when I have not visited.

“I have also been a frequent speaker at the University debater and I have friends in Aberdeen who I visit regularly.

“I’m really looking forward to working with the present team who are fantastic and future teams at the Students’ Association.”

The new appointment was welcomed by Professor C Duncan Rice, the University Principal. He said: “I am delighted to welcome Robin Harper as the new Rector for the University of Aberdeen.

“The Rector plays an important role in representing and supporting our students and I am confident that Mr Harper will serve them well.”
