Globally the higher education landscape seems to be moving faster and faster. Domestic Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are not just ‘competing’ (for want of a better word ) with each other, they are also fighting additional fronts as further education and global institutions look to attract the same body of students. Add to this the continued threat of reduced funding and the task faced by VCs and their operations staff is indeed challenging. Simply put educators are going to have to do better, to attract the students with less.
Approximately 40 million people in the world are blind or partially sighted. 80% could have their sight restored with the right treatment. In cooperation with The Norwegian Association for the Blind and Partially Sighted and their iCare initiative, Unit4 is helping return sight to hundreds through sponsored eye camps.
