About Us

Founded in 2011, Wonkhe (pronounced wonky) is the home of higher education wonks: those who work in and around universities and anyone interested and engaged in higher education policy, people and politics.

Our mission is to improve policymaking in higher education and provide a platform for the new or previously unheard voices and perspectives in the sector.

Wonkhe is not partisan and not aligned to any particular policies, politics or interests. Wonkhe does not have its own editorial view – our voice is represented only through our many different contributors and their diverse ideas and perspectives.

Our articles bring together leading debate, analysis and commentary across a range of themes. Our jobs board provide the community with the latest positions in the sector. Our events bring the sector together to explore higher education themes and drive professional development in HE.

Wonkhe depends on contributions from across higher education – if you would like to write for us, please read our guide to writing for Wonkhe, and get in touch to pitch an article.
