Robert Clarence Robertson-Cuninghame AO (31 May 1924 – 10 September 2010), Australian pastoralist and academic, was the fourth Chancellor of the University of New England from 1981 until 1993.
A descendant of Frederick Robert White, the builder of Booloominbah, Robertson-Cuninghame was educated at The Armidale School and the University of Sydney where he studied a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, before winning a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford in 1949.
Dr Robertson-Cuninghame served as patron to the UNE Union, who in 2003 named the central cafeteria Dr Rob's in his honour. Today, the university also offers the Robertson-Cuninghame Honours Scholarship of $5,500 for honours students, which has also been named after the former Chancellor.
