NERUPI Convention 2023: The Power of Partnership

Friends House, Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ

The creation of a more equitable higher education system is the ambition of many in the sector but achieving it can be challenging. Meaningful change requires a cultural transformation which cannot be realised by working in isolation. Collaborations and partnerships can support the change process enabling us to learn from diverse experiences, share expertise and develop new insights. At this event members heard from John Blake, Director for Fair Access and Participation at the Office for Students, learnt about some of the excellent partnership work that is already taking place and explored how research and evaluation could contribute to greater equity and inclusion.
