University Advance HE Subscription Renewed

The University is pleased to announce that it has recently renewed our collaborative institutional subscription with Advance HE—an organization which formed in 2018 from a merger between Equality Challenge Unit, Higher Education Academy and the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education—and is dedicated to driving positive change in higher education. With over 15 years of resources to access, as well as knowledge and insight into the key sector opportunities and challenges, Advance HE exists to help higher education shape its future. They offer expertise in the areas of excellence in education, transformative leadership, equality and inclusion and effective governance. Further, they administer a number of development programmes and surveys which the University participates in, such as the PRES survey, as well as the Athena SWAN and Aurora programmes.
