Strategic Advisory Groups

To ensure our members are at the heart of the development of our services.

Our strategic advisory groups (SAGs) actively engage our members in shaping the activity and future direction of the organisation. The groups provide strategic advice and guidance to support the implementation of Advance HE’s strategy ensuring members' needs and interests are reflected.

The role of the SAGs are to:

  • Review and shape Advance HE’s priorities within each relevant area
  • Identifying current and emerging strategic issues, challenges and opportunities to inform the future work of Advance HE
  • Considering the implications of thematic areas of work for each relevant area
  • Advising Advance HE on implementing an integrated approach maximizing the synergies between the areas of equality, leadership, governance and education.

    As a key component of our consultative approach, these groups help build sector confidence and trust in Advance HE and support us to help higher education shape its future.
