Convention for Higher Education

The Convention for Higher Education is an initiative of academics and activists in our sector. Colleagues from the Campaign for the Public University, Council for the Defence of British Universities and the University and Colleges Union have come together to defend our sector.


Campaign for the Public University

The UK Campaign for the Public University is open to all. It is a broad-based campaign with no party or other political affiliation. It has been initiated by a group of university teachers and graduate students seeking to defend and promote the idea of the university as a public good. We believe that the public university is essential both for cultivating democratic public life and creating the means for individuals to find fulfillment in creative and intellectual pursuits regardless of whether or not they pursue a degree programme.
