Vice-President External Engagement (VPEE)

The Vice-President External Engagement (VPEE) teams work to achieve UCL's mission to communicate and engage effectively with the world, providing leadership and support for all at UCL.

The Vice-President for External Engagement (VPEE) role and portfolio were created at the end of 2021 in preparation for the delivery of UCL's new five-year strategy.

Building on existing strengths, our VPEE teams work to ensure that UCL’s public prominence, reputation and influence reflects our excellence in knowledge creation, education, and innovation while promoting the public value of university research and partnerships to the future of Global Britain.

We are committed to bringing people together to create an engagement and influence powerhouse for UCL with expertise of communications, media relations, public affairs, marketing, digital and events. We look forward to working with our partners within UCL and externally to ensure UCL’s public profile reflects our excellence in knowledge creation, education, and innovation.
