Dr Clive Hunt is an Associate Professor and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. As a Chartered Engineer (CEng), his academic career has been grounded by his industrial and commercial experience in the aerospace industry which he gained at Rolls-Royce plc, as well as from other industrial sectors, in delivering projects and programmes and integrating engineering expertise.
He remains actively involved with industry by providing expertise through enterprise activities such as Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.
As an experienced mechanical engineer, with a management education, his teaching focus includes final year engineering and design projects, design management, product marketing and organisational strategy. He is a unit leader for four units and teaches on the BA, BSc, BEng/MEng, MA and MSc engineering/design programmes.
Clive’s research mainly focuses on higher education, and he is particularly interested in the student experience and understanding how student groups engage with learning... His research also examines how strategy is implemented in historically dependent settings. In these different contexts, he has pursued an understanding of the challenges of teaching large groups of students having diverse demographics. In his research on innovation and change in institutions he has added to a body of literature that uniquely combines the use of 'new' institutionalism and Cultural-Historical Activity Theory (CHAT) to explain change from the perspective of the organisation as well as the individual institutional actors. His research on widening participation (WP) to HE is becoming increasingly important not just in the UK but across the world. In the UK, in particular, WP is a strategic priorty for its governments and the HE sector in general.
Clive gained his doctorate from the University of Bristol, UK.more

Public Engagement & Outreach Activities
- My voice, my story: the lived experience of being a non-traditional student at university. This workshop enables audience immersion in multimedia stories co-created by students using novel social participatory research to elict lived experiences of being a non-traditional student at university by engaging in telling/re-telling of stories (Jones, 2015). We focus on students from non-traditional backgrounds because research shows how the lived experiences of these students are often marginalised by institutions (Hunt et al., forthcoming; Thomas, 2012). Photovoice is seen to be effective in capturing stories and sharing the lives of non-traditional students (Warne et al., 2012; Minthorn and Marsh, 2016).
