Writing & Publishing: Development of Gaelic Language Plan for the University of Glasgow

Writing & Publishing: Development of Gaelic Language Plan for the University of Glasgow

The University of Glasgow was asked to prepare a Gaelic Language Plan for the University of Glasgow in 2011 under the terms of the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005. This is a fantastic example of cross-university collaboration meeting the needs of Government legislation.

This official policy was launched in March 2013 and involves the development of Gaelic language and culture within the context of key functions identified by Bòrd na Gàidhlig, the national development agency for Gaelic, including: Communications, Staffing, Publications and Identity.
In addition, the university will incorporate Gaelic into the Student Experience at Glasgow in a number of ways, to continue the work of the pioneering Gaelic Language Initiative established in 2009.
