Appointment of Governors to the University Court
Glasgow Caledonian University, the University for the Common Good, has a growing global reputation for delivering social benefit and impact through education, research and social innovation. With Nobel Laureate, Professor Muhammad Yunus, as our Chancellor our goal is to align with others in partnership to provide access to education, to transform lives and to promote health, well-being and prosperity in the communities we serve at home in the UK and overseas.
The University is in an important phase in the delivery of its Strategy 2020 while looking ahead to its future strategic priorities. We wish to appoint additional Governors with a passion for, and commitment to, the University’s mission for the Common Good.
The University Court is keen to hear from applicants with expertise and strategic experience in: financial management, accounting and risk; communications and marketing; estates and facilities; and health and safety. Applications from those whose expertise lies elsewhere in the professions, business, industry and the third and public sector are also invited. A well-founded understanding of governance at board level is an asset.
Although the role of governor is unremunerated, appropriate expenses will be reimbursed.
The Court values the strength delivered through diversity in its composition and particularly welcomes applications from women, people with disabilities and people from ethnic minorities.
