Four years ago we introduced Wonkhe to the higher education sector. We’ve grown steadily since, but today marks our first major leap forward. You’re reading this on the first version of our new platform that kicks off a period of substantial growth of this site and everything that our organisation does.

As the technology has changed, our mission remains the same – that is to improve policymaking in higher education and provide a platform for the new or previously unheard voices and perspectives in the sector. We now have the firepower to deliver this thanks to our new technical platform and the network of supporters that have pulled together to help us realise our vision. Wonkhe’s Director Mark Leach introduces the new site.
