Aurora Programme 2014/15

The University is pleased to announce it is continuing participation in the Aurora programme.

The Aurora programme is a Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (LFHE) development programme for women in higher education.

The programme is sponsored by our Vice-Chancellor Professor Dame Julia Goodfellow and Dr Ruth Blakeley (Reader in International Relations) is the Kent Aurora Champion.

Following last year’s involvement and experience of Aurora, the University will again be supporting a Kent cohort for 2014/15.

Female academic staff up to Senior Lecturer level will be invited to apply through their Faculty and, in addition this year we will be piloting the Aurora programme in two selected professional service areas where women are currently under-represented.
