University Librarian Professor Hazel Hutchison has been made a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts.
As an RSA Fellow, she joins a global network of 29,000 people who support the Society’s mission to enrich society through ideas and action.
Professor Hutchison has worked in higher education for two decades in both academic and leadership roles, and currently has responsibility for Library Services across three sites, including the Sir Duncan Rice Library.
She also teaches and researches in the School of Language, Literature, Music and Visual Culture.
Commenting on her election as an RSA Fellow, she said: “The RSA is an exciting network of fellows with an agenda for creativity and social change. It is highly interdisciplinary, works across arts, sciences and business, and aims to solve problems by encouraging organisations and individuals to collaborate and innovate.
“It may have been around since 1754, but the RSA continues to generate new ideas and partnerships. I’m delighted to be joining this amazing organisation, and I’m looking forward to learning a lot and making new contacts across the UK and beyond.”
