People and Place

At UHI, people are at the heart of what we do. People are our region's most valuble resource. People grow our economy, teach the next generation, build our communities, and make our region the place it is.

With your support, we aim to provide the opportunities that we need to sustain our communities, drive our businesses, and grow our economy. 

We aim to ensure that everyone has access to education regardless of their personal circumstances, and that our local communities can connect with research programmes which are globally important, but have a direct impact on our region's unique culture, heritage and economy.


"At UHI, we can enable people to follow their dreams here; in a place they love. We can attract others to the region to study and work with us. We can offer a new way into education, at all stages in life and to people from all backgrounds."

Dr Jen Vanderhoven, Vice Principal Engagement
