It began life in the nineteenth century when there were informal meetings involving vice-chancellors of a number of universities and principals of university colleges[1] and was previously known as the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals of the Universities of the United Kingdom (CVCP). The current president is Julia Buckingham CBE.[2] The current Chief Executive is Alistair Jarvis, who took up this role in August 2017.[3] Now a registered charity, the organisation has an annual income of £11.6 million.[4]
