Registration open for HR Management & PR Network Conference

Registration open for HR Management & PR Network Conference

Published on 28 February 2014

Registration is now open for the ACU's HR Management & PR Network Conference, which will take place at the University of Glasgow, United Kingdom, between 13-16 July 2014 under the theme Steering institutional strategy: the critical roles of HR and PR.


The conference will examine the role that HR and PR professionals can and should play in helping to articulate and steer institutional strategies. It will focus on the strategies to be adopted and the competencies required by HR and PR professionals in addressing the challenges facing higher education, including:

  • New universities emerging in Asia and the Middle East;
  • Established universities partnering with institutions in other countries, or establishing their own branch campuses overseas;
  • For-profit universities and MOOCs;
  • Increasing competition for students both nationally and internationally;
  • Technological changes resulting in many students enrolled on distance learning courses


The conference will appeal primarily to HR and PR directors in universities but will also be of value to other senior policymakers with an interest in the theme, including registrars, assistant registrars, deputy vice-chancellors, strategic planners and heads of large departments or research units.

Further details regarding bursaries, accommodation and speakers can be found at and delegates are strongly encouraged to register before 18 April to take advantage of the early-bird rates.
