Jeroen Huisman quoted in Times Higher Education

Being asked to comment on the role of renumeration committees, Jeroen Huisman said he believes that the rising pay of vice-chancellors reflects a changed attitude among lay governors, who are moving away from their traditional role of “watchdogs”, in lieu of the state, who protect public money. In his view, governors are now more likely to see themselves as “guardian angels” who seek to import corporate methods into the running of universities.
