Reshaping higher education – whose agenda?

General view emerging from respondents was that they tried to mediate government reforms & adapt these to local circumstances; in 2nd interviews 13/19 said this (higher than in other 3 sectors)

2 kinds of Government policies: sector-wide and special initiatives for bidding (eg CETLs Gosling & Hannan 2008); latter often led to bitterness if not funded

Interviewees (VCs especially) also significantly involved in internal re-shaping of universities as organisations (e.g centralising & streamlining academic units, cf Taylor 2006)

Some respondents found a coincidence of personal values with particular government policies (e.g widening participation)but this was never across the broad range of government policies
