Kenneth Alexander was Professor of Economics at Strathclyde University (1963–80).
In 1964 he was invited to deliver the inaugural Marlow (Scotland) Lecture to the Institution of Engineers and Shipbuilders in Scotland. He chose the subject 'Casual Labour and Labour Casualties'. Alexander was invited by the Labour government to chair a review of the future of adult education in Scotland. This report was published in 1975 under the title Adult Education: The Challenge of Change. Its main recommendation was to create a wider community education approach by linking adult education more closely with youth and community work, in order to be able to engage more people in lifelong learning.
He served as the Principal of Stirling University (1981–86), and the Chancellor of Aberdeen University (1986–96). Alexander was Vice-president of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (1993–96).
