About the Rector's Assessor

The Rector’s Assessor is a student appointed by the Rector of the University of St Andrews to support the Rector and lead the Rector’s Committee, a team of students dedicated to improving and reporting upon the diverse student experiences in St Andrews. The Assessor and the Committee work together to help implement the Rector’s vision for change in St Andrews. It is important to note that the Assessor is not a representative, unless elected. The Assessor sits on University Court alongside the Rector and is a non-voting member of the Students’ Representative Council (SRC). 

How the Rector Assessor Affects You

The position of Rector’s Assessor is important due to the way in which the role links the student body, Students’ Association, University Court, Rector’s Committee, and the Rector. As a student representative, myself and the Committee answer first and foremost to the needs of students, and work hand in glove with the Students' Assocation to ensure all students are fairly consulted and considered in the University’s decision-making processes.

A core element of accurately representing the student body at the highest governing level of the University is regular and comprehensive consultation, as well as co-creation of initiatives with students.

Groups the Rector’s Committee works with

The Rector, Rector’s Assessor, and Rector’s Committee work very closely with a variety of groups and initiatives. The Committee collaborates with Students' Assocation, Sabbs, subcommittees, societies, University staff, and individuals to address the various key issues that need to be resolved.
