About the Educational Strategy Unit

LSE’s Educational Strategy Unit was established in August 2016 to support
the delivery and progress of the LSE Education Strategy. We work across
the two streams of activity through which the Education Strategy is being
implemented – academic departments’ Departmental Education Strategies
and the education-related work of LSE’s professional services – and undertake
work of our own, particularly in advocacy and research, that contributes to the
development and communication of educational strategy and policy.

We work closely with colleagues across the School, in particular the Pro-Director Education and those in the Academic Registrar’s Division, Communications Division and fellow Academic and Professional Development Division units.

LSE Education Strategy 2015-2020 co-ordination

The ESU co-ordinates the planning of activity and reporting of progress on LSE Education Strategy 2015-2020. This is done principally through the LSE Education Strategy Project Board, which it services, and through administration of the Departmental Education Strategies process. For more information on LSE’s Education Strategy 2015-2020, and to read the Strategy itself, see our LSE Education Strategy 2015-2020 page.
