The Rules of Engagement: building political trust and confidence in universities


16th May 2019

At this one day event, we’ll focus on the policy challenges facing higher education, how to influence, and the tools you need to effect political and policy change.

Universities are lightning rods for controversy as politics swerves towards populism and can no longer rely on a revolving door into government to make their case. Brexit is taking up all the political bandwidth and politicians openly question whether universities can be trusted to act in the public and student interest.

We will explore the policy issues that universities are facing and look at where we should be focusing our energy and how we can best muster our arguments, using all the tools at our disposal.

Bringing together sector leaders and policymakers to get a rounded picture of the state of higher education policy and politics in 2019, this is an essential event for anyone working in policy, public affairs and external stakeholder management in universities.

A full agenda will be published soon. The event will start at 09.30 and finish at 16.30 and there will be a drinks reception after the close of the day.
