The Creation of the University of Bedfordshire: An Ongoing Project
Franklin, Jim; Robinson, Kate
Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, v14 n3 p80-85 Jul 2010
"The key needs of Bedfordshire, to improve the participation of its people in higher education and to regenerate its economy, will be best served by a new major access and employment oriented University." This vision statement was adopted by the Board of Governors of the University of Luton on 9 December 2005 on taking the decision to go ahead with the merger that resulted in the creation of the University of Bedfordshire. The statement was also used at the head of the University's bid to the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) for Strategic Development Funds. This article tells the story of the merger and highlights some of the lessons learned along the way. (Contains 2 tables and 1 note.)
