UKDS Meetings

In partial fulfilment of its aims UKDS holds meetings for its members at which certain important speakers are usually invited and there is also the opportunity for Deans to discuss issues of concern and share good practice. Deans are encouraged to send substitutes for any meeting that they cannot attend in person.

For its first four years the organisation held one meeting per year. In 1994 it moved to two meetings in each academic year. Meetings now follow a pattern of a one-day London meeting and a two-day residential meeting in another part of the country hosted and organised by a member university.
