Welcome to the lead page of MASHEIN, our programme and events for small and specialist universities and higher education colleges.
MASHEIN is a network of 39 small institutions in the UK providing development and training events on a national level, specifically focused on the needs of small higher education institutions. Such institutions make a distinctive contribution to the diversity of the sector. We define 'small' as institutions with fewer than 3000 full time equivalent higher education students, and fewer than 4000 full time equivalent students overall. MASHEIN was established in 2000 and has been funded by the Leadership Foundation since 2005.
The following events will be taking place shortly, please click the links below to find out more:
Leading Change in a Changing HE Context
Date: Wednesday 21 September 2016
Location: London (venue tbc)
This networking event is for the past participants of the MASHEIN Leadership Development Programme. This event has been designed to help maximise 'best self' leadership performance and enhance influencing skills.
Beyond the Comfort Zone - Putting Civic Leadership at the Heart of the University Experience
Date: Thursday 22 September 2016
Location: Ravensbourne, SE10 0EW
This Symposium has been inspired by a Small Development Project which has tested and measured ways that student engagement can be linked to leadership attributes and includes thinking, applied both to the institution and to the wider community. Post the EU Referendum this will be a topical session for all institutions. This event has been designed for this with a particular interest in student engagement and may be of particular interest to senior managers with responsibility in this area.
