Our strategic priorities for the higher education sector in the UK are not listed in order, but need to be enacted together as part of an overall, wide-ranging and comprehensive approach to this issue. To work towards our priorities, we have three main work streams:

  • Research and Knowledge Exchange  – Lead: Dr Anna Bull
  • Advocacy and Campaigns  – Lead: Dr Emma Chapman
  • Policy and Consultancy – Lead: Dr Tiffany Page
