Here we see Senior Academics from the Universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, and Strathclyde - the three universities which paid for the magnificent new UHI mace.
The university title has been achieved with the crucial support of our three sponsor universities, all noted for substantial research expertise. They are all overseeing the continuing development of our research degrees, research capacity and university culture.
Our two faculties - Arts, Humanities and Business, and Science, Health and Education - offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses in subjects including: arts, humanities and social sciences; creative industries; Gaelic medium studies; education and childcare; health and wellbeing; business and leisure; environmental and rural studies; science and technology; and engineering and construction, all tailored to meet the needs of the region and beyond.
The faculties lead our research and commercial activities, and work with partners in industry to make subjects relevant to the world of work.
We are the first higher education institution to publish a Gaelic Language Plan, setting out learning opportunities for staff, students and the wider public, among other strategic objectives, over four years.
Whether it is providing a qualification in a range of Gaelic studies, helping to train Gaelic-medium teachers, or communicating with students, staff and the public in both Gaelic and English, including bi-lingual greeting from the executive office reception desk, we are proud of our commitment to the language and the culture.
