Representation and Advocacy

In support of our mission to deliver excellent student and campus experiences, and given the integrated and broad nature of the services we provide to academic life, CUBO engages with a variety of other associations in higher education. Here are some of the main relationships we maintain:

Commercial and campus services

We have a strategic partnership with The University Caterers Organisation TUCO and meet annually with ASRA, TUCO, UHS and Academic Venue Solutions among other associations.

CUBO members have a very significant staff cohort in each institution – 800 here in Leeds in my team – so issues pertaining to H&S are critical for us all. Mental health issues and sickness represent significant concerns and it is vital that CUBO members are appraised on sector-wide initiatives and useful connections.
