04/10/17 – Public Lecture @ University of Bradford, Norcroft Centre
This lecture entitled “Universities in the crosshairs: why they are under attack, and what they should do about it” will be given by be Sir Richard Lambert, journalist and business executive.
Sir Richard will discuss how England is a genuine world leader in higher education, but its position is under threat from policy errors and political misjudgements at home, and rising competition abroad.
Far from being cherished, universities have been subject to all kinds of attacks in recent months. Richard will explore why this is and what should happen now.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bradford, Professor Brian Cantor hosts an annual lecture which brings distinguished speakers who are experts in their fields to Bradford. Join Sir Richard Lambert for what will be a thought provoking lecture.
Sir Richard served as Director-General of the CBI, Chancellor of the University of Warwick and editor of the Financial Times.
I genuinely enjoyed this lecture. I found the speaker to be knowledgeable and highly engaging. It created a ripple effect that had me thinking about the position the HE sector is currently in, where it is going and how it so easily could lose its way if we are not careful and act with integrity (as a whole sector).
