Dr Michael Foxley
Chair of the further education regional board
Dr Michael Foxley has long campaigned for the enhancement of educational opportunities in the West Highlands. His efforts ultimately led, in August 2010, to the merger of Lochaber College UHI and Skye and Wester Ross College to form West Highland College UHI, and his appointment as chair. He stood down from the college and took up the new position as chair of the university's further education regional board in summer 2014.
Michael is a crofter and a retired GP. He is a former leader of The Highland Council, and a former board member of Bòrd na Gàidhlig.
