Principal and Vice-Chancellor Professor Nigel Seaton, on behalf of the whole Abertay community, said thank you and congratulations for such dedicated service over many years.
He said: "In the same month that sees us celebrate our 125th anniversary as a higher education institution, it's great to be able to honour colleagues whose efforts have been so important to our success.
