Each year we consult with our members on where and how we can support them in meeting the many challenges in higher education today. By tackling important sector concerns collectively, the funding awarded by Advance HE helps our members to find new solutions and benefit from the shared learning of what works.
“I’m delighted to be launching our Collaborative Development Fund for 2022-23 as we aim to support shared learning and enhancement activity by funding a range of innovative and exciting project initiatives”
Associate Director (Membership & Accreditation)
Introducing the 2022-23 Collaborative Development Fund Projects
The three projects are announced in the first tranche of funding are:
The Academic Leadership Talent Pipeline– Good Practice Case Studies
Advance HE will be collaborating with Universities Human Resources (UHR) on this project – a topic that is of interest to human resources/organisational development (HR/OD) teams and academic leaders alike given its importance to the creation and sustainability of inclusive academic leadership pipeline. The project's outputs will include a portfolio of resources - a case study evidence base with examples of potential solutions that can be broadly applied within their own unique contexts - for Advance HE members.
Applications for The Academic Leadership Talent Pipeline project are now closed.
Beyond The Classroom: Supporting Student Outcomes
The Beyond the Classroom project is to collate and curate a small number of institutional case studies that identify and explain how new forms of working and organisational collaboration support good student outcomes (progression, retention, graduate outcomes) by creating transformation activities outside the formal classroom experience.
Applications for Beyond The Classroom: Supporting Student Outcomes project are now closed.
The Sustainable Institutions Project: An Evidence Informed Review Of Good Practice
The Sustainable Institutions Project is to review examples of sustainable institutions from around the globe to provide our members with an evidence-based review of current best practice for developing as sustainable institutions. It will also support their understanding of the need to take a strategic approach to sustainability across all their areas of operation.
Applications for The Sustainable Institutions Project: An Evidence-Informed Review Of Good Practices project are now closed.
