The chapters were originally papers presented at our 2019 annual conference hosted by Sheffield Hallam University. The challenging conference title and thematic framework provided an excellent starting point for our authors which resulted in a rich variety of papers. Conference presenters were invited to address four key themes or issues. These were:
1. The public good of higher education – exploring and understanding the wider benefits of an inclusive higher education.
2. Place – examining the impact of place and context on higher education access and participation.
3. Lifelong learning – the role of higher education institutionally, regionally, nationally and internationally in creating and delivering lifelong learning opportunities.
4. Widening participation – challenging and innovative approaches to access and success in higher education and beyond.
