Dr Hala Mansour, Associate Professor in Human Resource Management & Organisational Behaviour has been appointed to the Executive Committee of the UK Council for Graduate Education (UKCGE).

The UK Council for Graduate Education is the independent voice of the UK postgraduate community, which aims to champion and enhance postgraduate education and research by enabling collective leadership on the development of postgraduate affairs across UK HEIs, research agencies, and funding bodies.

Dr Mansour joins the UKCEG Executive Committee and will focus on creating the strategic priorities for the Council, overseeing events and activities offered by the Council, as well as playing a key role in postgraduate policy to enhance the postgraduate education sector.

Speaking about her appointment, Dr Hala Mansour said: “I’m delighted to join the UKCGE. As the Faculty of Business and Law Postgraduate Research Lead, I have an in-depth knowledge of the challenges faced by students and staff, as well as the areas of excellent practice at Northampton, which I hope to be able to share to enhance the wider postgraduate community. I am eager to bring best practices and innovations from across the sector to Northampton too, although our postgraduate offer is very strong, we can always learn, enhance and improve the experience we offer to staff and students.

“I look forward to being part of the work the Council is undertaking around the mental health of postgraduate researchers, equality and diversity in postgraduate education, and best practice for postgraduate research cultures and supervision.”
