I really enjoy being opened up to inexhaustible ways of looking at the world in unexpected and intriguing ways.

Dr Brian Boag studied Modern and Scottish History at Glasgow and having qualified as a schoolteacher diversified into the Social Sciences and went into the world of Further Education.  He has tutored Social Sciences for the Open University for many years and when the proposals for a University of the Highlands and Islands took shape he got involved in that historic development.  Brian was the first programme leader for the Social Sciences programme and went on to become subject network leader for the Humanities, Education and Gaelic and later Dean of Arts, Humanities and Business.  He has always been interested in opening up educational opportunity at all levels for people in the highlands and islands and in other rural parts of the country.
