Carole McCallumCarole McCallum 

Carole is the founder of the Archives here at GCU and custodian of our corporate memory.

GCU’s Archives not only ensure the University’s historical continuity (which dates back to 1875), but also act as a learning and teaching hub for unique and rare resources which broadly speaking fall under the umbrella heading of social justice. Carole has worked with various community groups over the years sharing the University’s rich resources and encouraging a better understanding of an event, time or place. Once housed in a university, Carole believes archives take on a new life and become a living resource. She is therefore delighted to open discussions with the local community to better understand its past and look towards its future. C.McCallum@gcu.ac.uk


Susan GrantSusan Grant 

Susan co-ordinates Glasgow Caledonian University’s (GCU) Community and Public Engagement agenda and supports the work of the Community and Public Engagement Steering Group. She also adds to GCU’s engagement portfolio through her own projects, for example ensuring that the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games has a lasting legacy. 

Susan comes from an outreach background, having most recently worked on GCU's widening access and community engagement project, The Caledonian Club.  Susan thinks it is important that people understand better the environment within which they live, work or study to feel more part of the community now and in the future. @GCUEngagement; susan.grant@gcu.ac.uk

 

 

Douglas McCreath

Douglas McCreathDouglas is a retired geography teacher and active community volunteer working on projects ranging from arts group to plans to a mountain bike track and he is an avid social historian.  With the help of Glasgow Housing Association, Douglas recently published the book, Cranhill: Looking Back on Yesterday to tie in with the 60th anniversary of the final stages of construction of one of the city’ first housing schemes after the Second World War.  Like the story of Cranhill, Douglas think that it is important the story of Cowcaddens and Townhead is told.  The Caledonian Community Archives is very fortunate to have Douglas as part of the team.
