DASSH UK is the representative body of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities in universities and higher education institutions throughout the UK. It not only provides a forum for debating matters of policy and practice in relation to our disciplines and their development but also an excellent network for managers and senior managers working in the sector enabling the exchange of information and ideas.

Our members are Deans, Assistant Deans, and Heads of Schools/Faculties/Departments of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities.

We usually hold two meetings a year, when members have the opportunity to exchange ideas, learn from each other, and engage in discussion with leaders in our field.

Information on future meetings can be found on the Events and News pages.

We hope very much that you will join us.

Dr Mehreen Mirza

Chair of DASSH UK
