Professor James Miller FRSE, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of UWS, said: "Graduation is the pinnacle of the University calendar.

"It gives us the opportunity to both reflect on the amazing achievements of our students and to celebrate this most important of milestones with their friends and families, as well as the whole UWS community who have supported them throughout their time at University.

"Alongside our students, we are delighted to be recognising the significant contributions of three very inspirational individuals, who, throughout their careers, have made a huge impact in their respective fields. 

"In addition to their national profiles, they have each had local connections in and around Renfrewshire, which reflects the placemaking agenda of UWS and we look forward to welcoming them into the wider UWS community."
