The current IPN Chair is the University of Exeter’s Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, Professor Sir Steve Smith, also a UUK board member, ensuring accountability to this group. In addition, he chairs our International Strategic Advisory Board (ISAB) through which we are accountable to and receive advice from our funders.
Funders can send one representative to each ISAB meeting, while Universities UK is represented by its chief executive and three nominated UUK members. UUK seeks to ensure these members represent the geographical and institutional diversity of its membership, and have the experience necessary to provide high-level strategic direction to our work. GuildHE is represented by its chief executive and also nominates a member to sit on the board.
