Oversikt


Universitetets egenart kommer fra vår evne til å være både ambisiøse og down-to-earth. Vi er i stand til å blande banebrytende intellektuell prestasjon med praktiske anvendelser.

Universitetet har sett mange endringer siden det ble en selvstendig institusjon i 1967. Denne uavhengigheten fulgt en 70 års forhold med University of St Andrews, men vår grunnleggende målet er fortsatt.

 

Vi har omarbeidet dette målet i vår Transformation Vision. Det er det vi gjør i dag, og det er det vi alltid har gjort. Det er å:

“forvandle liv lokalt og globalt gjennom etableringen, deling og anvendelse av kunnskap.”

I dag gjenspeiler vi dette målet på mange måter:

  • god i undervisning og forskning;
  • bidra til sosial, økonomiske og kulturelle liv i Skottland og resten av verden;
  • forme fremtiden ved å løse viktige reelle problemer.

 

Vi tar sikte på å bli Skottlands ledende universitet. Vi ønsker å være best på det vi gjør i det vi velger å gjøre, og bli anerkjent internasjonalt for kvaliteten på våre kandidater og virkningen av vår forskning.

Vi er drevet av ønsket om å løse store utfordringer, og vil fokusere vår innsats på tre områder:

  • Ved hjelp av globale ressurser på en bærekraftig måte
  • Nyvinninger gjennom design
  • Bedre helse og velvære

 

Vi vil arbeide på tvers av faggrenser; bringe kompetanse og ulike synspunkter. Dette vil gjøre oss i stand til å nærme seg problemene i nytt, utfordrende og produktive måter. Vi utstyrer våre ansatte og våre studenter med midler til å skape virkelige verden innvirkning, bidra til å løse globale problemer og forvandle liv.

Historie


The demand for a University in Dundee arose as part of a movementcommon to many of the larger industrial centres of Britain at that timefor the extension of liberal education and the advancement of technical instruction.

I 1881, largely because of the foresight and generosity of Dr John Boyd Baxter and Miss Mary Ann Baxter of Balgaviesdistantly related members of a wealthy and influential local family – Høgskolen, Dundee, was founded as an independent academic institution for

‘promoting the education of persons of both sexes and the study of Science, Literature and the Fine Arts’.

Notwithstanding its independence, the College had no power to award degrees and for some years students were prepared for the external examinations of the University of London. Amongst the earlier teachers were men of great eminence -including (to give them their later titles):

  • Sir William Peterson, the College’s first Principal, who was afterwards Principal of McGill University, Montreal;
  • Sir Alfred Ewing, later Principal of Edinburgh University;
  • Sir D’Arcy Thompson, the biologist;
  • Sir Patrick Geddes, the botanist and town planner;
  • and Sir William McCormick who was to become the first secretary of the Carnegie Trust, and later the first chairman of the University Grants Committee.

I 1897 University College became part of the University of St Andrews. This union served to give expression to local feeling that there should be a vital connection between the old and the new in academic affairs, and that a venerable institution in a small town and a modern establishment in a large city might well complement each other in a manner advantageous to both.

I 1954, consequent upon constitutional changes within the University of St Andrews, Høgskolen, with the gracious consent of Her Majesty the Queen, was renamed Queen’s College. These changes, which included the incorporation of the Dundee School of Economics in the College, though they improved its status substantially, left it as an integral part of the University of St Andrews. The rapidly increasing pressure upon university places in the years that followed and the evident need to expand the teaching and research facilities in Dundee, reinforced a local sentiment of long standing in favour of the elevation of the College to independent university status.

The Committee on Higher Education under the chairmanship of Lord Robbins recommended in its report to Parliament in October 1963 at

‘at least one, and perhaps two, of the new university foundations should be in Scotland’.

The Government approved the initiation of the processes necessary to create a university in Dundee, og i 1964 the University Court of the University of St Andrews appointed an Academic Advisory Committee, under the chairmanship of Mr R. B. McCallum, the Master of Pembroke College, Oxford, to advise on the constitution of the proposed University and on the academic developments to be undertaken in it. I 1966, on the basis of recommendations made by the Advisory Committee, the University Court and the Council of Queen’s College submitted a joint petition to the Privy Council seeking the grant of a Royal Charter to establish the University of Dundee. This petition was approved and, in terms of the Charter, Queen’s College became the University of Dundee on the first of August 1967.

I 1974 the University created a Faculty of Environmental Studies which validated degrees of the Schools of Architecture and Town and Regional Planning of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. Av 1988 all degree courses offered at the College were validated by the University. This collaboration between the two institutions led to a formal merger of the College and the University with effect from 1 august 1994 with the College becoming a Faculty of the University.

I 1995 the University was successful in securing, on a competitive basis, the contract from the Scottish Office Health Department for pre-registration nursing and midwifery education in Fife and Tayside. This led to Tayside College of Nursing and Fife College of Health Studies becoming part of the University from 1 september 1996 as a single School of Nursing and Midwifery within the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry which was subsequently renamed, Det medisinske fakultet, Dentistry and Nursing.

I desember 2001 the University merged with the Dundee campus of Northern College (of Education) to create the Faculty of Education and Social Work.
