In March 2021, HEPI published a Debate Paper by Professor David Phoenix, Vice-Chancellor at London South Bank University (LSBU), which ranked higher education institutions in a new English Social Mobility Index. The Index takes into account both the social distance travelled by each institution's graduates and the number of graduates so transported.
In order to take this debate to the next stage, HEPI and LSBU are bringing together a panel to discuss the issues raised by this important work. Confirmed speakers include:
- Professor David Phoenix, Vice-Chancellor, London South Bank University
- Phil Baty Editor of the Times Higher Education's World University Rankings
- Sarah Atkinson, Chief Executive of the Social Mobility Foundation
- Professor Anna Mountford-Zimdars, Professor of Education, Academic Director at Centre for Social Mobility, University of Exeter
Timings: 11.45am - 1pm
