HEPI / GuildHE Roundtable Specialist institutions and the HE policy challenge: ensuring Westminster and Whitehall understand their policy needs

  • 30 October 2018 - 30 October 2018
  • 12pm to 2.15pm
  • Ravensbourne University London, Greenwich Peninsula, 6 Penrose Way, London SE10 0EW

HEPI roundtable lunch organised in partnership with GuildHE focusing on the policy challenges specifically facing specialist institutions in the new regulatory landscape for higher education, hosted by Ravensbourne University London on Tuesday 30th October (12pm to 2.15pm)

Policymakers typically lavish praise on specialist institutions, which they tend to portray as jewels in the crown of UK higher education. Yet, despite this, specialist institutions tend not to have the same focus as other priorities when it comes to setting policy. At the roundtable lunch HEPI & GuildHE want to focus the discussion on what makes specialist institutions excellent, what policies could make them even better and how to ensure policy makers don’t inadvertently harm some of our best institutions through unintended consequences.

Chaired by Gordon McKenzie, Chief Executive, GuildHE, speakers to include Nick Hillman, HEPI Director; Professor John Last, Vice-Chancellor, Norwich University of the Arts; and Professor Joanna Price, Vice-Chancellor, Royal Agricultural University.

Invite-only.  For further details please contact Sarah Isles, HEPI Development Director: [email protected]
