Glasgow Caledonian University is a public university located in Glasgow, Scotland. It was created in 1993 by the merger of The Queen’s College, Glasgow (founded in 1875), and Glasgow Polytechnic (founded in 1991).
In June 2017, the university’s New York partner institution, which was established in 2013, was awarded permission to award degrees in the state, the first higher education institution established by a foreign university to acquire this status.
Glasgow Caledonian University traces its origin from The Queen’s College, Glasgow (founded 1875) and the Glasgow College of Technology (founded 1971). The Queen’s College, which specialized in providing training in domestic science, acquired the Royal accolade of being named after Queen Elizabeth in its centenary celebrations in 1975.
However, Queen Elizabeth was herself, Patron of the College since 1944. Glasgow Polytechnic, which was one of the largest central institutions in Scotland, delivered externally validated degrees and diplomas in engineering, science, and the humanities: the first of which was a BA in Optics, followed by degrees in Social Sciences (1973) and Nursing (1977).
On 1 April 1993, the two institutions amalgamated to form Glasgow Caledonian University. Moreover, the new university took its name from Caledonia, the poetic Latin name for present-day Scotland.
The main campus of Glasgow Caledonian University is built on the site of the former Buchanan Street Station, built by the Caledonian Railway.
Independent research executed in 2015 disclosed that the University contributes over £480m to Scotland’s economy each year with the quantifiable lifetime premium of a one-year class of graduates estimated at around £400m, bringing the University’s total annual economic impact to around £880m in Scotland alone.
Annie Lennox was inaugurated as Glasgow Caledonian University’s first female chancellor, taking over the role from Nobel Peace Prize laureate Muhammad Yunus, at a ceremony in July 2018.
In addition, Pamela Gillies is the Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University, appointed in 2006. According to the Research Excellence Framework, Glasgow Caledonian University is the top modern university in Scotland by research power.
The University’s social policy research impact at world-leading levels has ranked the university in the top 10 in the UK. The Glasgow Caledonian University has three university-wide institutes that immerse in cross-disciplinary research: The Institute for Applied Health Research, which researches a range of health-related topics; The Institute for Sustainable Engineering and Technology Research, which researches a range of disciplines strived at minimizing the impact on the environment; and The Institute for Society and Social Justice Research, which researches the topics of citizenship and participation, crime and justice, and gender and economy.
The University also has research centers including The Yunus Centre for Social Business and Health, the Centre for Climate Justice, and the Women in Scotland’s (WiSE) Economy Research Centre.
