Members' Business: University of Stirling, 10 Years as Scotland’s University for Sporting Excellence

September 05, 2018 17:00

 

That the Parliament notes that the University of Stirling is celebrating 10 years since its designation as Scotland’s University for Sporting Excellence in 2008; recognises the contribution that its students and alumni have made to Scotland’s sporting success locally, nationally and internationally, including a tally of 11 medals at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and three at the 2016 Olympics in Rio; considers that this excellence in performance, participation, research and academia will be strengthened further by the establishment of Scotland’s National Tennis Academy and a £20 million transformation of the university’s sports facilities, and believes that a thriving sport and health culture is of benefit, not just to the university, but to the community in Stirling and Clackmannanshire.
