In a new Debate Paper from the Higher Education Policy Institute, Richard Brabner, Director of the UPP Foundation, says universities and the Government should adopt the famous political idea of One Nation to reshape universities in England.

Writing in a personal capacity, Brabner says criticism of recent higher education expansion stems from having a university sector that benefits the professional classes more than those from working-class backgrounds.

To overcome this, he argues we should adopt the idea of the One Nation University, which is a concept based on: spreading opportunity; reducing division; and building community.
