Event description
Professor Dame Madeleine Atkins will be speaking on "The University Sector: Criticisms and Remedies"

About this Event

We’re sorry to say that given the recent developments surrounding the coronavirus outbreak – and following Government advice, we have received confirmation that our planned luncheon in May has been cancelled. It’s very disappointing for everyone involved, but we hope you can understand the decision, which has been taken with the health and wellbeing of all attendees in mind.

We will keep everyone informed of future arrangements.

“The University sector has suffered its share of criticism in recent months. Charges of elitism, failure to prepare students for the world of work, too much emphasis on research at the expense of teaching are but a few of the perceived failures of the sector. 

Are the criticisms justified? And what remedies can universities employ?”

We are delighted that Professor Dame Madeleine Atkins has agreed to be our speaker at the next NCUP luncheon, to be held on Thursday 21st May, 2020.

Professor Atkins’s background includes reading Law and History as an undergraduate at Cambridge University (Girton College), teaching in a large comprehensive school in Huntingdon, and completing a PhD and post-doctoral research contracts at the University of Nottingham.

Following various senior positions at Newcastle University, including Pro-Vice-Chancellor, she was Vice-Chancellor of Coventry University between 2004 and 2013. She then joined the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) as its Chief Executive in January 2014 retaining that post until March 2018.

Most recently, Professor Dame Atkins has been been appointed for a seven-year period to lead Lucy Cavendish  College, Cambridge in its mission to provide excellent education at the highest level and quality.

We do hope you will join us for a sit-down luncheon, in the historic setting of the Cholmondeley Room & Terrace of the House of Lords, Westminster

On 21st May 2020

At 11.45am – 2.30pm
