PLAID OPTIONAL: For the opening of its New York campus, Glasgow Caledonian University will welcome Scotland’s First Minister, the Rt. Hon. Alex Salmond MSP, for the inaugural Caledonian Lecture. Scheduled to coincide with Scotland Week, the April 7 event will center on “Scotland’s Place in the World.” GCU revealed its plans to open a satellite campus in New York last year, making it the first British university to launch a campus in the city.
On April 8, GCU’s first town hall meeting will be held at its Wooster Street space with Harris Tweed Hebrides creative director Mark Hogarth and chairman Brian Wilson speaking with Brooks Brothers senior fabric specialist Doug Shriver to explore “Fashion Sharing Progress.” Hogarth is a GCU alumnus, and Wilson — a former U.K. trade minister — is a visiting professor in GCU’s Glasgow School for Business and Society. Esquire’s fashion director Nick Sullivan will serve as moderator.
