Stephen Orme

My name is Stephen Orme and I am currently appointed as Strategic Partnership Director at Navitas. I have previously held roles as Director at Study Group, International Policy Advisor at Nuffic and Admissions Coordinator and Credential Evaluator at Leiden University. With my experience I combine the skills of being a strategically focussed manager with specific knowledge related to higher education.

As Chair of the Expert Community Admission and Recognition for the last four years I have been involved in significant changes to the Association. The current scale and scope of the Association bring exciting opportunities as well as challenges. What does it mean to be a member? How do we maintain our character while placing ourselves at the very heart of international education? I am committed to playing a strategic role as a leader in addressing the key question for the next two years: How do we balance scale and impact?

During the last two years I have been heavily involved in organising initiatives for integrating refugee students into higher education. I feel passionate about this and, in addition to the above, commit to taking this agenda to the next level if elected as member of the Board.
