Dr Richard Tunstall elected to Board of Enterprise Educators UK

Dr Richard Tunstall has been elected to represent the University of Leeds on the Board of Enterprise Educators UK from August 2020.

Dr Richard Tunstall, Associate Professor in Enterprise Education, was elected by constituent university members to the Board of Enterprise Educators UK (EEUK) for a three-year term. Previously Professor Sarah Underwood and InTechnology Incubator Programme Manager Brian Baille represented the University of Leeds as members.

EEUK acts on behalf of its member universities to enable excellence in enterprise education across the Higher Education (HE) curriculum, co-curricular and extra-curricular provision. It supports enterprise educators across a global network through events, conferences, research funding and a new Fellowship programme. It also works directly with policy-makers to support and promote the future of enterprise education in the HE sector. Dr Tunstall commented:

I’m delighted to be able to represent the University of Leeds on the Board.  It’s a very challenging time for the university sector and for small businesses, and I look forward to working with EEUK to support enterprise excellence in Higher Education.
