Comparative Governance – The United Kingdom and United States

I had the privilege recently of speaking at the Association of Colleges’ Governance Summit in London.

A view from the States: Noah and Emily share what is happening across the pond

We recorded two podcasts at the Association of Colleges (AoC) conference with J. Noah Brown, President and CEO of the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) in the USA and Emily Yim, also of the ACCT and Executive Director at the Washington Alliance for Better Schools (WABS) about the latest developments in Further Education and Apprenticeships in the USA.

Giving Thanks from Across the Pond

I just returned from the AoC Conference in Birmingham to celebrate our American Thanksgiving with family. This year’s trip the U.K. afforded me the first opportunity to interact with our British colleagues since the June 23rd Brexit vote, the subsequent change at 10 Downing Street, and our November 8th Presidential Election. Clearly the sea change in British and American politics has created a good deal of anxiety for both or our sectors. How appropriate, then, to spend time across the pond to share and reflect on our two sectors and the work that lies ahead.
