Tony’s extensive career has focused on researching and teaching about education’s role in divided societies, including concerns about the social good and social cohesion. His leadership roles have brought with them the addition of the insights of practice in the higher education sector, having been Head of School and Pro Vice Chancellor at a university in Northern Ireland.

I met Tony on my first day of work in the UK, and we have continued to interact habitually as we have a shared interest in Higher Education Studies. In this interview we discuss meet in his office (pictured above) to informally discuss his interest with ‘civic engagement’ in higher education.
