Stephen Orme

My name is Stephen Orme. I have fulfilled various leading roles in several areas of higher education whilst serving the leadership of the EAIE. I enjoy developing things by connecting people and would be honoured to make the EAIE stronger, more influential, more innovative and more inclusive than it is today. During my time in the leadership, I have seen the topics of discussion around the association’s mission and values recur in cycles. What are the membership benefits? How do we become more influential? How do we diversify? I strongly believe that the EAIE’s unique proposition is formed by its large network of dedicated expert volunteers. The people working across the sector ready to give their time and expertise to the network define the core identity of the EAIE. In combination with a strong financial position, this makes the EAIE potentially the most beneficial organisation in international education. Optimising this potential can be done by empowering volunteers and by investing the surplus in projects, meaningful events and cooperation with other organisations. But more importantly, it can be done by doing, not just talking. I would very much appreciate your consideration of my candidacy so that we can do things together.
