DASSH Spring Conference 2019

This year, the DASSH Spring Conference will be held on Friday 17th May in Central London.

The focus of the event will be ‘Being a Dean in Challenging Times’. With uncertainty around issues such as Brexit and the Higher Education Funding Review, we will explore both the developing policy environments, and the practical questions of how we get on with the job of running our Faculties and Schools.

The event is free for members of DASSH.
