Julie Holland made Fellow of Enterprise Educators UK
The Directors of Enterprise Educators UK (EEUK) have awarded Fellowships to five eminent enterprise educators, including Dr Julie Holland in recognition of her ‘major contribution to EEUK in support of enterprise education in the UK’.
Julie is Director of Loughborough University’s Glendonbrook Centre for Enterprise Education. Housed in the School of Business and Economics, the Centre’s remit is to ensure that undergraduate and postgraduate students from across the University develop enterprising and innovative skills with which to put their degree course knowledge and expertise to good use.
“It’s a real honour to be made a fellow of Enterprise Educators UK,” said Julie. “I am proud to be a member and now a fellow of an organisation that plays such an important role in supporting enterprise educators in HE and FE.”
EEUK has a pivotal role in supporting educators to increase the scale, scope and effectiveness of enterprise and entrepreneurship teaching within their institutions. The new Fellows will act in an advisory capacity to the current board, contributing actively to the development of enterprise education good practice.
Dr Julie Holland joined the board in 2006, becoming Chair in 2007-2008. She led the rebranding of what is now known as Enterprise Educators UK and laid the foundations for the incorporation as a company limited by guarantee which took place in 2010.
Tom Williamson, current Chair of EEUK said, “I am delighted to welcome all five new Fellows. It’s important that we recognise and celebrate the major contribution that these former board members have made but it’s also a great reassurance for all on the current board to know that we can call on their immense knowledge and experience as we take EEUK through the next stages of its development.”
