A second new appointment to the Unite Foundation Board of Trustees

The Unite Foundation is pleased to welcome a second new Trustee to the Board this month. Professor Andrea Dlaska is Deputy Vice-Chancellor Learning and Innovation at Middlesex University where she is responsible for Academic Quality and Enhancement, Employability and Library and Student Support Services.

Andrea studied English and German literature and linguistics at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. She has worked in a variety of roles in universities in Switzerland and the UK and has board experience in two schools. In her current and previous roles, she has been responsible for widening access to higher education and for successful outcomes for all students. She has published on a range of topics, including Asian American literature, assessment and feedback and the internationalisation of learning and teaching.

Andrea said, “The transition into university life can be challenging, especially if support from families cannot be taken for granted. The Unite Foundation makes an important contribution to scholarship students’ success and wellbeing at university. I have been deeply impressed with the work of the charity and very much look forward to working with the members of the Board.”

Andrea is an outstanding addition to the Unite Foundation Board of Trustees, bringing valuable new skills and expertise. Welcome Andrea.
