Ross Alexander Renton is an educationalist. He was a leading figure in student politics until July 2004. He was previously a Director of Endsleigh Insurance Ltd. and chair of NUS Services Ltd.[1]

Ross Renton's notable areas of work included the establishment of Scotland’s first online student book exchange and a member of the lobby team that brought the previous Labour Government to within 5 votes of defeat over the Higher Education bill in 2004.

Renton was elected National Treasurer of the NUS [2] in 2003 and led the reforms of the financially troubled National Union of Students. This resulted in the introduction of a new system of affiliation and a restructuring of the organisation. Edinburgh University Students' Association rejoined NUS after decades of separation due in part to the new affiliation system.

He was the Dean Of Students at the University Of Hertfordshire.[3] He was also the Chair of the Board of Governors at Watford University Technical College.[4] He also served as a Director for Hatfield Community Free School.[5]

Renton is currently the Pro Vice Chancellor Students at the University of Worcester. [6]
