  • Universities UK is an advocacy organisation for universities in the United Kingdom. It began life as the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals of the Universities of the United Kingdom (CVCP) in the nineteenth century when there were informal meetings involving vice-chancellors of a number of universities and principals of university colleges. The current president is Dame Julia Goodfellow, vice-chancellor of the University of Kent. The current Chief Executive is Nicola Dandridge. In 1918 the first consultative meeting of all vice-chancellors was held. At that time, the committee consisted of just twenty-two universities and university colleges. In 1930, under the chairmanship of Sir Charles Grant Robertson, vice-chancellors secured a mandate from their respective universities that "it is desirable in the common interests of the United Kingdom to constitute a Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals for purposes of mutual consultation". In the early 1980s, they commissioned the Jarratt report, published in 1985, and which framed universities as businesses delivering a product to student-consumers. Over the succeeding years the number of universities increased as a result of new universities being created and the change in legislation in 1992, which recognised the former polytechnics as universities thus doubling and diversifying the membership. On 1 December 2000, CVCP’s name, logo and identity were changed to Universities UK in order to reflect changes which had taken place in the organisation in recent years. Universities UK's task is to support the work of universities and promote their interests. It works to deliver its mission by speaking out for a thriving and diverse higher education sector which creates benefits for all; providing and disseminating essential information; bringing people together to share knowledge and good practice. There is also an additional group, Universities Scotland, whose membership comprises the Universities UK members in Scotland. Universities Scotland promotes and supports the work of Universities UK.

  • Universities UK ist eine Interessengemeinschaft der britischen Universitäten. Sie entstand im 19. Jahrhundert aus dem Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals of the Universities of the United Kingdom (CVCP). Damals handelte es sich um informelle Treffen zwischen den Vizekanzlern einiger britischer Universitäten. 1918 fand das erste offizielle Treffen statt. Zu dem Zeitpunkt bestand die Organisation aus 22 Mitgliedern. Seitdem wächst die Zahl der teilnehmenden Lehranstalten, nicht zuletzt durch die Reform aus dem Jahr 1992, damals bekamen alle Polytechnics den Status einer Universität. Heute ist das Ziel von Universities UK, die Arbeit der Universitäten zu unterstützen und deren Interessen zu vertreten. Mittlerweile hat die Organisation 128 Mitglieder und hat ihren Sitz in London.
