Become an Advocate or Network Coordinator

The AUA is a professional community that thrives at a national, regional and local level because of the commitment and enthusiasm of our Advocates and Network Coordinators.

Benefits of being an Advocate or Network Coordinator

Our Network Coordinators and Advocates represent us at their institutions and organisations; raising awareness of the AUA, recruiting new members, motivating current members to actively participate in our activities and their professional development and communicating local ideas to the AUA team to keep us in touch with you and your needs.

“Being an Advocate is extremely rewarding.  I believe it helps professionalise HE administration and management and allows me to both contribute to the development at the University of Salford and to get involved locally, regionally and nationally.”
Jayne Langlands, Quality and Enhancement Manager, University of Salford

Benefits of getting involved:

  • Raise your professional profile
  • Develop new skills
  • Widen your professional network
  • Develop your knowledge and understanding of HE
