An introduction to Glasgow given by Neal Juster on Day 1 of the Glasgow study tour in 2016.

Each annual conference is preceded or followed by a Study Tour hosted by a top global university. Study Tours, available to members only, are two-day visits to a peer university to explore its strategic areas of research, strength and teaching expertise while soaking up the culture of the city.

In 2016 Glasgow hosted the study tour, as part of the 2016 Dublin Conference.

An introduction to Glasgow was given by Neal Juster, Senior Vice-Principal and Deputy Vice Chancellor (Office of the Vice Principals).

Neal also presented slides on ‘Developing a University Strategy’, revealing insight learned from Univeristy of Glasgow’s experience.
