Consultation Visits

The Steering Group recognised the need to engage widely with institutions to gauge the opinions of staff and student representatives and existing governing body members. Expert advisers visited each of the 19 Scottish higher education institutions between November 2012 and January 2013 to help the Steering Group take account of the range of views across the sector and to understand any institution-specific concerns or issues.
