The Times Higher Education Leadership & Management Summit 2021
Restore, Reset, Rebuild
As the current Times Higher Education University of the Year, we are delighted to host the Times Higher Education Leadership & Management Summit, to be held in October 2021. Our Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Anton Muscatelli, warmly invites you to attend.
The pandemic has forced the University of Glasgow to reflect on our direction, management and priorities. We have not only had to adapt to the impact of a pandemic, but also to the consequences of the UK’s changing relationship with the rest of Europe, and I am proud of the leadership, dedication, courage, and ingenuity that has been shown across our community of world changers throughout this significantly challenging time.
As a broad-based, research-intensive university rooted in history and heritage, we recognise the importance of learning from our experiences to remain credible and relevant in society today.
We will continue to lead using our collective and diverse skills to support our civic partners and the wider Glasgow community in dealing with the resultant economic and social impacts of the last 18 months, but we will also ensure that our values guide our activity. We have committed to being carbon neutral by 2030 and will continue to deliver against our award-winning programme of reparative justice.
The summit will provide you with an opportunity to share experiences and insights, along with challenges and opportunities, with some of the top leaders from the higher education and industry sectors. We hope that you will be inspired to further shape, strengthen, and lead positive and sustainable change in your universities and organisations as we all seek to restore, reset and rebuild.
Whilst we are disappointed that we cannot physically welcome you to our beautiful campus this year, we hope that you have an excellent online events experience and that you are able to enjoy a flavour of our Glasgow and Scottish hospitality from afar.
I look forward to welcoming you to the Leadership & Management Summit in October 2021!
