Glasgow University needs a working Rector now! This role is too important to leave functionally absent for another three years. The University is about to begin a massive redevelopment of the Gilmorehill campus, grapple with the uncertainty of Brexit, and it is positioning itself to grow in numbers. In this rather in-between and uncertain time in the life of the University I will fight to make sure every student now is fully supported by the University in their life and work at this world class place.

I am running for rector to give current Glasgow University students a candidate who is as close to being a student as you can get and well suited to undertake the duties of a working rector. I am aware of what is happening on campus because I have been a student here for the last four years and have stayed involved with many societies as well as listened to the issues of students still studying.

For the next three years I will match the energy, passion, and effort that the students of Glasgow University put into their time here whilst sitting on the University Court! I will continue to work alongside the fantastic student unions, sports association, SRC, a wide range of student societies, and any individual who needs assistance whilst at University!

The student body needs someone who will put just as much effort and passion into the role of rector as they put into their studies! A vote for Duncan Logie is a vote for a Rector who knows what it’s like to study at Glasgow University in these times. Vote for Duncan Logie because the student body needs a dedicated, hard working, and recent alumnus now!

As a working rector I promise to:

  • Hold two surgeries per month on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon at the Gilmorehill campus.
  • Hold one surgery per month at the Crichton Campus.
  • Attend all meetings of the University Court
  • Protect the future of the QMU and GUU.
  • Pressure the University to provide world class teaching facilities to every student during campus redevelopment.
  • Lobby the UK government to reduce tuition fees.
  • Allow students to run for rector again.
  • Maintain a close working relationship with the SRC executive for a robust representation of all students and add support for the 5 year strategic plan.
