University governance in a new age of regulation: A conversation between Professor Steven Jones and Nick Hillman, with a Foreword by Professor Michael Shattock

  • HEPI number 119

This exchange about university governance by one academic governor and one lay governor considers:

  • the balance between governors and managers;
  • the disconnect between academics and governors; and • the changing demands on governors.

A Foreword by Michael Shattock, the former Registrar of Warwick University and the co-author of The Governance of British Higher Education (forthcoming), roots the discussion in a broader historical context.

The whole paper is designed to promote further reflection on university governance in the twenty-first century.
