Welcome to the first issue of HE Perspectives of the 2018/19 academic year.
I am delighted that PwC are continuing to collaborate with the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) and very grateful to Nick Hillman for writing the lead article to this issue. Their insight and challenge is key to the success of the sector.
Over the next academic year our work with them will focus on the theme of value: the value of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to students, value to communities and value to industry. In a changing regulatory landscape the HE sector is being challenged more than ever before to articulate its contribution and value in a number of ways. And I hope that the articles in this collection and the events we host with HEPI will prove useful in this.
