Lord Rector of the University of Edinburgh is elected every three
years by the students and staff at the University of Edinburgh.
Seldom referred to as Lord Rector, the incumbent is more commonly
known just as the Rector. The position of Rector, along with the
positions of Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor, was only created in
1858. Prior to this, the University was governed by the Lord
Provost, Magistrates, and town council of Edinburgh. The rector's
place in the university was codified by statute of the Westminster
Parliament, the Universities (Scotland) Act 1889, which provided
for the election of a Rector at all universities then in existence
