THE CRUNCH CHALLENGES: THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE CREDIT CRUNCH FOR EDUCATION
This is part of the Current Issues in Post-Compulsory Education seminar series at London South Bank University
These seminars should be of interest to all those working in the post-compulsory sector.
The first seminar is:
The Crunch Challenges: The Consequences of the Credit Crunch for Education Ian McNay 13th May, 5.30-7.30 8th Floor, The Keyworth Centre, London South Bank University Keyworth Street, London SE1 6NG
Reductions in funded student numbers in higher education, reductions in employer support, the prospect of a long-term squeeze on public funding – just some of the more obvious challenges of the credit crunch for higher education. How do we make sense of and address these challenges, including those affecting expansion, mission diversity and equity? Bring your own crunch issues to add to the agenda! Ian McNay is Emeritus Professor of Higher Education and Management at the University of Greenwich, London, where he was head of the School of Post-Compulsory Education and Training. Recent publications include Beyond Mass Higher Education: Building on Experience (SRHE/Open University Press, 2006) and Higher Education and Human Good (with Jennifer Bone) (Tockington Press, 2006).
