The Council for the Defence of British Universities presents:

After the Election: Alternatives in Higher Education Policy

The Council for the Defence of British Universities is establishing a Commission on Higher Education to diagnose its current problems and to develop alternative prospects for its future.  This is a long-term consultative exercise that will produce a plan for the management of Higher Education in the UK. Unlike the exercises conducted by governments and think-tanks and populated by business executives and bureaucrats, the CDBU Commission will draw on the expertise of those who know universities because they have dedicated their lives to working in them.  The commission will in its first phase consist of a series of events exploring the campaign topics of CDBU: student fees, the REF, early career researchers, vulnerable subjects, and Open Acccess.  It will then take in other aspects of the UK HE policy landscape.

This colloquium, ‘After the Election’, seeks to take the pulse of Higher Education in the UK while identifying the thinking that should inform its future in the next parliament and beyond.
