Tavistock Times: SPP Newsletter April 2012

26 April 2012

Tavistock Times is the official School of Public Policy newsletter.


Director's Message:

Growth and change have been the recurring themes of the Tavistock Times in recent years. Student numbers have grown from 30 students in 2001 to 380 in 2012 and full time faculty has grown from 3 to 24 in the same period.

It is hoped that these new appointments will add much to our teaching portfolio and help us with the forthcoming Research Excellence Framework.
