Global HE leaders come together at Warwick


LogoWarwick's International Programme in the Leadership and Management of Higher Education (IPLM) is taking place on campus from 7-20 April. We are delighted to welcome representatives from higher education institutions across the world.

The IPLM is an intensive two-week programme providing university leaders and senior managers with the opportunity to reflect on the key challenges facing higher education at an international, national and local level, and on the role they play in meeting those challenges at their own institutions.

During the programme, participants will hear expert insight and discuss issues with key HE practitioners, visit HE institutions across the Midlands to explore the different approaches to key challenges, and take part in dynamic small group work on real issues, using peer learning and insights gained during the programme to reach solutions.

The programme builds on the highly successful Higher Education Management Programme offered by Warwick and the University of Oxford, which has been running for over 20 years and attended by over 300 delegates from 60 countries. This year, there are 17 participants from institutions including the University of the West Indies, Monash University, Nangarhar University in Afghanistan and the Durban Institute of Technology in South Africa.

The programme is co-hosted by Professor Abhinay Muthoo, Head of the Department of Economics, and Ken Sloan, Registrar. A wide range of speakers include Nigel Thrift, Vice-Chancellor and President, Peter Marshall, Chief Operating Officer at Monash, Sir Richard Lambert, Chancellor, Sir Alan Langlands, Chief Executive of HEFCE, Sir Albert Bore, Leader of Birmingham City Council, Professor Sir Drummond Bone, Master of Balliol College, Oxford, Rob Behrens, Independent Adjudicator and Chief Executive of the OIA, as well as a number of senior staff from Warwick.
