Speaker information

Dr Andrew McGettigan, Freelance researcher and author
Professor Jan Toporowski, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS)
Dr Beth Perry, Associate Director of SURF (The Centre for Sustainable Urban and Regional Futures)
Professor Mike Raco, UCL Bartlett School of Planning

In the context of recent dramatic changes to the UK higher education sector, the rapid privatization of universities, new proposals for their future expansion, and changes to the financial models through which they sustain their work, the primary aim of these seminars is to provide a forum for critical debate and stimulate wider discussion amongst the UCL community on the future role of universities. In each session 3-4 experts will give talks and participate in discussion. The first seminar will focus on the spatial strategies of universities and in relation to urban development and globalisation; the second will explore issues around funding and accountability; and the third will examine the platforms through which universities engage the public.
