University Senior Management Team

Hello! This is the delayed post about the University's Senior Management Team that I promised in the last Student Council meeting. After Principal and Vice-Chancellor Prof George Boyne visited our Council meeting for a Q&A session, I was contacted by George's Special Assistant that George had told the SMT about his visit to our Council meeting and that if we ''wanted to invite other members of the SMT to future meetings they would be open to doing so.''

Below I have included a list of Senior Management Team members. If you are interested in inviting a member to a future Student Council meeting, please get in touch with me at ausapresident@abdn.ac.uk. So far this term, we still have one meeting on the 10th of March and on the 21st of April.

It is unfortuantely very late to invite someone for the March meeting (this is my fault as I have been very busy and did not priortise this post) so if you wish for us to invite anyone, then please let me know by the 21st of March. For April, please let me know by 31st of March. 

You don't have to be a councillor to invite memebers of the SMT, anyone is welcome to come and asked questions of the people that run our University, and I heartily encourage this!
