The logical next step to building stronger partnerships for Brighton

Posted by Hannah Oakman | September 29, 2016 | Research

University Alliance is a group of modern civic universities working together to shape higher education and research policy for the benefit of our students and business and civic partners.

With over 20,000 students studying across five campuses in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings, the University of Brighton is helping to transform the lives of people living within diverse communities across the region.

Professor John Latham, Chair of University Alliance and Vice-Chancellor of Coventry University, said: “Our members are universities with a strong civic mission and deep and strong partnerships with business.  We use our international connections, world class real-world research and innovative teaching to help our regions to grow and prosper. The University of Brighton shares this mission and is a natural fit for University Alliance.

“We are facing a period of unprecedented change for the sector. By working together, our members have a stronger voice.”

Professor Debra Humphris, Vice-Chancellor, University of Brighton, said:“Partnership is at the heart of our endeavor as a university. As a result we take great pride in our many relationships within our home city of Brighton and Hove and our wider region, as well as our many global connections. Joining the University Alliance is a logical next step as we look to strengthen and extend our influence and engagement in the higher education sector.

“We very much look forward to working with the other members of the University Alliance and bringing our voice and perspectives to the issues that we all face in a changing and challenging world.”
