Higher Education Identities


SRHE Higher Educational Policy Network

Tuesday 11th October 4-6.30pm, Room T1-20, London Metropolitan University

Higher education identities, cultures and practices: a changing policy context

The higher education sector in the UK is experiencing dramatic change. The financial crisis, a change of government and ongoing developments in the positioning and role of higher education institutions present new challenges for those who work in universities. This seminar will explore the implications of these changes for academic and professional identities, cultures and practices.


Dr Celia Whitchurch, Institute of Education, University of London    

Reconstructing Identities in Higher Education – Expanding the Parameters of Academia

In a context in which academics are increasingly working across multiple constituencies and with internal and external partners, this paper explores the factors that influence individuals to take on such work. It considers the impact on academic identities and career paths and the implications for institutions of more complex roles and relationships.

Dr Jill Jameson, University of Greenwich

Changing Leadership Identities: the Role of Trust and Organisational Cultures in a Recessionary UK Higher Education Policy Context

This paper considers how changing leadership values, trust and organisational cultures impact upon the identities of academic, professional and corporate leaders in HE. It also explores how the academic and intellectual aspects of HE leadership identities can be strengthened and trust rebuilt to fulfil the complex purposes of universities.

Tea and coffee will be available at 4pm and the event will start at 4.15. After each paper there will be time for questions and discussion, followed by an opportunity to discuss issues raised in both papers over a glass of wine or juice.

For further details about the Higher Education Policy Network, please contact the network convenor, Professor Carole Leathwood, Institute for Policy Studies in Education, London Metropolitan University,

I am pleased to invite you to the next meeting of the Learning and Skills Research Network London and South East branch to be held on Friday, 5th June, 2009 from 2.00 – 4.00 pm. RSVP to me below. Thanks to Rania Hafez of the University of East London, who has kindly agreed to host this meeting on behalf of UEL and LSRN LSE.

Please note that this meeting was originally pencilled in for this Friday, 8th May, but we have needed to change that. I hope this does not inconvenience you.
At the 5th June meeting, we are aiming to elect NEW CO-CHAIRS for the LSRN LSE Network. We have had two nominations for the two new Co-Chair roles for Sai Loo and Rania Hafez. If any other network member would like to be considered, please can you send an expression of interest to me by the 3rd June. Otherwise, if there are no other nominations, we will aim to discuss and propose the election of the new Co-Chairs on 5th June. I’ll follow up this email with an update message with minutes and the agenda.

We look forward to seeing LSE LSRN colleagues again on Friday 5th June!
