Gavin Douglas to take up new post at the University of Plymouth

Gavin Douglas, currently Deputy Secretary, Student Experience, is to leave the University to take up a post at the University of Plymouth.

He has been appointed as Plymouth’s University Registrar and Secretary.

During his time at Edinburgh Gavin has been responsible for a broad portfolio including Student Systems and Administration, Academic Services, the Institute for Academic Development and a number of student-facing services, including Careers, Counselling and Disability Services, and the Chaplaincy.

Gavin has been an invaluable colleague during his 8 years and more here and will be very much missed. I know colleagues will want to join me in congratulating him on being selected to this new leadership role and wishing him all the very best success for the future.
