Our events seek to inform and improve public and political debate relating to higher education. We work with a range of partners and stakeholders to promote, safeguard and sustain the public benefit delivered by universities.

Details of our upcoming and past events can be found on these pages. If you’d like to find out how to get involved with our future events or would like to run an event with us, please contact us to discuss your proposal.
