DVC/PVC Network

The Advance HE DVC/PVC Network is a highly valued and influential community of DVCs, PVCs and equivalent senior leaders with the brief for learning and teaching, education, or the student experience at member institutions. It is a unique forum to share successful strategies for enhancing HE teaching and learning. The invitation only network for Pro Vice-Chancellors, Vice-Principals and Deputy Vice-Chancellors.

There are two events each year where the network comes together to consider and share experience on key strategic matters impacting higher education. A carefully curated agenda of presentations and discussions, shaped in partnership with the members of the network, provides leaders with precious quality time so often lacking in today’s environment. Time in which to network with peers from across the sector within a Chatham House Rules environment. Each event features a dinner and drinks reception.

Our strategic networks and communities are one of the most valued ways in which we at Advance HE are able to engage with members and stakeholders. This network of senior leaders of education, student experience and learning and teaching is our longest running and most well established. It has proven to be an important and powerful group over the years for shaping sector response to key areas of policy. With high profile speakers and focus on the key issues and contemporary challenges we look forward to continue our support for senior leaders in coming together to share, connect and collaborate.”
