The headlines about universities over the last year have been tough to read. They reveal a sad truth. That the higher education sector, for all its strengths, has lost its ability to tell a coherent story about itself.

The sector and its leadership are now suffering a collective crisis of moral authority, a crisis of leadership, and a crisis of identity.

That’s because they are under attack from across the political spectrum.

In this blog, Mark Leach tries to get under the skin of why this is happening and how university leadership must respond.

This is a great blog on the importance of storytelling and narrative in changing circumstances and provides a model for all of us who feel passionate about their cause.
