The many faces of the university

Universities have many roles, and they play them simultaneously in a complex and interwoven existence with students, academics, communities and each other. This essay collection, produced by Wonkhe and Shakespeare Martineau, untangles strands from this web of connections to help understand better how these roles manifest.

As part of our partnership with Wonkhe, over the last year we have held discussions about the changing roles universities play in relation to their students, from educator to employment consultant, policeman to parent. We decided this was something worth reflecting on further and the result is this collection of essays, produced by authors from across the higher education sector.

The collection explores the forces within and around universities that necessitate change, and, importantly, how the sector should respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by them.

"We’re delighted to be at the beginning of a partnership between two teams who share the same winning spirit and focus on supporting talent to achieve their potential. Everyone here has a great sense of pride and excitement to be working with Team England – a team that, after all, reflects just how much can be achieved by a diverse and varied group of individuals all focused on one goal. We can’t wait to get started."

Joanna Thornell, Client and Markets Director, Shakespeare Martineau
