Two members of staff were named as winners of the 2015 Principal's Medals.

Máire Cox, Communicator at OPENspace Research Centre, receives the Exceptional Service medal, while Dr Andrew Gardiner, Senior Lecturer at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, receives the Service to the Community award.

Exceptional service

Ms Cox received the award in recognition of her notable contribution in raising the profile, and enhancing the impact of, academic research in Edinburgh College of Art.

She did this amongst non-academic audiences through an extraordinary level of personal commitment and initiative.

Community benefit

Dr Gardiner received the award in recognition of his innovation and practitioner skills in the field of public engagement and community outreach work.

He provided veterinary services to the pets of homeless people in Edinburgh and offered students the opportunity to gain valuable experience in practicing their subject in the community.
