    Abstract

    Event synopsis: Celebrating Robbins: the impact of the Robbins Report on British Higher Education 1963-2013 The Centre for Higher Education Studies, in association with the Times Higher Education, is holding a one day conference on 24th October 2013 at the Institute of Education, University of London to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the publication of the Report. The Rt Hon David Willetts MP, Minister for Universities and Science will open the conference. The Robbins Report, one of the most important social documents of the post-war era, was published on 23 October 1963. On the following day, the government announced its acceptance of the Robbins forecasts for higher education expansion. Speakers will include Professors Michael Shattock and Claire Callender and Professors Sir Peter Scott and Sir David Watson. The conference will offer an opportunity both to recognise and celebrate one of the most important dates in British higher education history and also to assess the Report's long term impact on the development of higher Education.
