Higher education is a complex kaleidoscope of organisations, networks and communities. There is a well established and growing collection of professional associations and our engagement with this community is extensive. The range of organisations we are working with include AGCAS, AHUA, AMOSSHE, ARC, ARMA, AUA, AUDE, AUPO, AURIL, BUFDG, EAUC, HEA, HESPA, JISC, SCONUL, UHR and UCISA. The focus of engagement with these professional associations is wide-ranging and in some cases it has led to the development of very successful UK-wide leadership development programmes which stand alongside our other national programmes.
We are a membership organisation of and for a sector that has some of the brightest minds in the UK.
Our members are key to our strategy and form a community of higher education institutions with a clear commitment to and experience of developing leadership, governance and management capabilities at all levels. Academic and professional services staff from member institutions contribute to our programmes, projects and research and advise on benefits and services.
