The Forum brings together colleagues from around the globe who are actively engaged in leadership development in Higher Education as practitioners, research faculty or senior leaders. The event will offer a variety of opportunities for colleagues to engage with one another so that all may benefit from the breadth of international experiences and perspectives across our institutions.

HELF18 opens with a welcome dinner reception on Wednesday 12th September in the University’s Inox Dine venue.

The main event will be held in The Diamond building. Opened in September 2015, the building represents the largest academic project the University has undertaken to date.

The Higher Education Leadership Forum was first held at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, in April 2017.

90 delegates from 4 continents shared good practice and research on leadership development in HE, and there was strong demand for a 2018 event.
