South West Regional Network

Convenors:
Dr Lisa Lucas, University of Bristol
Professor Rajani Naidoo, University of Bath

The South West Higher Education Network is a group of over 90 academics and doctoral students from Higher Education Institutions in the South West of England and South Wales, based in the Graduate School of Education at Bristol and convened by Dr Lisa Lucas (University of Bristol), Dr Rajani Naidoo (University of Bath) and Professor Ann-Marie Bathmaker (University of the West of England). It was established in January 2005 and runs regular half day events. The group's aims are to nurture and support higher education researchers in a region where there are few HEIs with a critical mass of HE researchers, to give UK HE research an international as well as national focus (by inviting international speakers who are visiting the UK) and to build research capacity in the field of Higher Education by facilitating and developing the work of those new to this arena (including doctoral students).

Meeting Venue
All event meetings will be held at the Graduate School of Education, 35 Berkeley Square, Clifton, Bristol (except where stated otherwise).
