The Higher Education Policy Institute has published a new report by Professor Susan Lea, the former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hull, entitled Turning Around a University: Lessons from personal experience (HEPI Debate Paper 32, attached).

Changes to the UK higher education landscape since 2010 coupled with a range of internal challenges had seen the University of Hull confront a position of considerable risk in around 2017. Yet the city of Hull and the wider region is precisely the sort of place that needs a resilient and purposeful university. The paper describes how both the academic performance and financial sustainability of the University of Hull were turned around. 

Professor Lea sets out the leadership approach required to produce sustainable change in a complex organisation.
