Heads of University Management & Administration Network in Europe

Residential School Alumni Network

Nurturing impactful leadership: HUMANE Residential Schools and the Alumni Network supporting professional development and organisational transformations in universities.

When the Winter School was launched in 2003, HUMANE’s purpose was to “develop a cadre of professional senior university managers and encourage them to network across Europe“. Two Schools followed more recently, the Summer School and the Transnational Partnership School in Asia.

All Schools are in line with HUMANE’s overall mission to expand international networks in higher education, foster management innovation and drive professional excellence.

The Residential School Alumni network has developed from the Schools and today counts some 700 members from the universities in the HUMANE network. The network is an important driving force for collaboration across borders in Europe and internationally.
