Carey, Philip – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2018
There is a strong focus on the importance of student engagement in higher education, with increasing attention on how students can participate in their university's decision-making processes.

Wilson, Margaret R.; Corr, Philip J. – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2018
The "raison d'etre" of all universities is to create and deliver "academic value", which we define as the sum total of the contributions from the 360-degree "angles" of the academic community, including all categories of staff, as well as external stakeholders (e.g. regulatory, commercial, professional and community…

Gander, Michelle – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2018
Professional staff total approximately 23% of staff in universities in the UK, which in 2014/15 was the equivalent of 95,870 individuals (hesa.ac.uk). With their increasing span of responsibility, it is surprising that there has been little research into the careers of these staff. This study, part of a larger careers study, highlights some key…

Cook, Mary Curnock – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2018
In 2011, David Willetts issued a White Paper with the title "Students at the Heart of the System". In 2011 the headlines were, inevitably, about the new tuition fee regime which, it was hoped, would change the thinking of university leaders so that they focussed less on research excellence and more on the needs and aspirations of…
