Reshaping higher education – whose agenda?

I resent the fact that the government gives us 30% of the money, they think they can control 100% of what we do. So, I object to that very much, and I'm a very staunch advocate of more autonomy because the more successful universities in the world have the greatest autonomy (male VC, Furzedown, pre-1992)

Well, they expect us to be able to run our universities in a financially sustainable way, I think that's at the top of the list. Having achieved financial sustainability, I think they then look to us to deliver to their agenda, but they don't necessarily resource it, to give an example, there's lots of noise about STEM {science, technology, engineering and medicine} subjects at the moment, but no sign of additional government funding for STEM subjects, or any measures to encourage students to apply for STEM subjects, like lower fees or anything, so, {then} they say, why don't you produce more physicists? (male PVC, Longley, post-1992)
