Fiona Larg, Chief Operating Officer and Secretary, has been awarded an MBE for services to education.
Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Clive Mulholland, said: “I am delighted – this award is well deserved. Fiona has made a significant contribution to the development of the University of the Highlands and Islands. This includes the achievement of university status in 2011 and more recently by establishing the university as a regional strategic body, thereby creating a fully integrated institution encompassing both further and higher education activity, vocational training and research. This development is making a significant positive contribution to and a transformational impact on the prospects of this region, its people and its communities.
“Fiona is an excellent role model and her dedication and commitment to education and the communities of the Highlands and Islands region far exceed the duties expected of her post and are considered worthy of recognition.”
