GSA to award Steve Inch an honorary doctorate
Steve Inch, Glasgow City Council’s former director of regeneration services, is to be awarded an honourary doctorate, the Glasgow School of Art have announced.

Inch served in that role for over 20 years and was a key part of the team which put together Glasgow’s successful 2014 Commonwealth Games bid and a driving force behind the International Financial Services District.

A believer in harnessing physical development to create economic and social gain, Inch has cited Charles Rennie Mackintosh as a source of inspiration for his ideas on the relationship between buildings and their surroundings.

Commenting on his accolade Inch said: "Prior to retiring from Glasgow City Council I worked with GSA on a great many projects and am therefore fully aware of the role it has played in the ongoing regeneration of the city.  I feel deeply honoured that my contribution has been recognised through the award of this honorary doctorate, and I look forward to continuing to support GSA in the years to come."

Professor Seona Reid, Director of the Glasgow School of Art, added: “Steve Inch has had a seminal influence on the regeneration of Glasgow and the growth of the arts and creative industries in the city.”
