    Advent Day 2: Key messages as V-C commences his second year leading Harper Adams

    2 December 2022


    As Professor Ken Sloan commences his second year as Vice-Chancellor, he has written about the connection between enterprise and equality, diversity and inclusion in a new blog for The Higher Education Policy Institute in partnership with the National Centre for Entrepreneurship in Education.

    Professor Sloan writes: 

    “At Harper Adams, our focus is on curating impactful graduates and solutions for business and society. It is a primary reason why people work and study here. The University is widely regarded as entrepreneurial and enterprising: come and see our Hands-Free Farm if you want to see enterprise in action.

    "I will not accept, however, that we are as enterprising as we could be until our equality, diversity and inclusion ambitions are also fulfilled. Until then, there is always the chance that a voice that could make a transformational contribution to what we do will not be heard.

    "It also means that someone who could access a Harper Adams education and make a valuable contribution to our industries and society might not be able to do so. That is why inclusion is and must remain one of key our strategic priorities and will be a basis on which our future impact and our enterprising progress will rightly be evaluated.”
