Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Chancellor is the titular head of the University of St Andrews. His duties include conferring degrees, promoting the University's image throughout the world, and furthering its interests, both within Scotland and beyond.The Office of the Chancellor has existed since the foundation of the University and no comprehensive definition of its powers has been made in any modern statute. The most authoritative definition is contained in the return made by the University to the Royal Commission on the Universities and Colleges of Scotland of 1826 which states: "The Chancellor is head of the University. He is consulted on all public matters relative to its welfare, and he is also Conservator of its privileges. The power of conferring degrees is vested in him: this he may exercise either personally when present or by his depute when absent, with the advice of the doctors and masters of the University."show more
