Professor Rosemary Deem
Congratulations to Professor Rosemary Deem, Vice-Principal (Education) who was elected to the Executive Council of the UK Council for Graduate Education at their Annual conference in London last Friday.
The UKCGE was founded in 1994 to champion the interests of graduate education and provide an authoritative voice for the HE sector on postgraduate activity in the UK, as well as a forum for discussion and topical debate about the many changes taking place in postgraduate education.
The Council's activities are managed by a board of trustees which consists of 12 elected individuals from full member institutions of the Council, who are responsible for the overall management and control of UKCGE.
Professor Deem commented,
"Having College representation on the Executive of this organisation will be extremely useful for us in helping us understand and address PGT and PGR concerns. The Council runs excellent events, including conferences and workshops dedicated to the development of the UK's postgraduate education provision and the enhancement of the experience of students enrolled on postgraduate taught and postgraduate research programmes in the UK.
