About us

We’re a group of concerned individuals, both inside and outside universities, who are worried about the long-term direction of higher education policy in this country. We believe that it will do permanent and irreversible damage to an outstanding university system.

Our founding members include past and present presidents of the British Academy, the Royal Society of London, the Royal Society of Edinburgh and the Learned Society of Wales, as well as Nobel laureates, former principals and vice-chancellors and members of the House of Lords.
