I recently met with the Dr Jim McGeorge, the University Secretary at the University of Dundee. It was good to hear about the work of the University and what it is doing in the local area. I was able to update him on what is happening in the West End.
It is important that the university is a good neighbour. It is such a big institution that it is inevitable that problems occur from time to time. Generally I find that the University is quick to deal with issues that arise and is always keen to find a solution.
It is also really important that the city recognises the importance of the University to Dundee's economy and reputation. The City Council needs to be sure that it is supporting the university when it can.
I am happy to raise concerns anyone has with the University, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
