Written by Kate Beresford


Professor Sarah Underwood has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship of Enterprise Educators UK in recognition of her dedicated service to the organisation and her contribution to the wider enterprise educator community.

Sarah joined the EEUK board in 2013 and took on an executive role as treasurer straight away. She was elected Vice-Chair in 2016 and in 2017/18 took on the leadership of the organisation as Chair. During her year as Chair Sarah launched the new EEUK brand and website, established EEGlobal and led the development of the EEUK Fellowship which is now one of EEUK’s flagship programmes.

Sarah said, “I am so thrilled and flattered to be awarded an EEUK Honorary Fellowship. This organisation is very close to my heart as the community that it is made up of has been a constant source of support and inspiration throughout my time as an Enterprise educator. I am very appreciative of the opportunity that this award gives me to continue to input in some way and to be part of the continuing growth of EEUK.

Current Chair, Gareth Trainer, said, “I can’t say how pleased I am to have served with Sarah on the Board and witnessed directly the invaluable contributions that she made – it was a real pleasure and I hope EEUK members and the Board will benefit from Sarah’s ongoing support as one of our Honorary Fellows.”

Honorary Fellowships of Enterprise Educators UK are awarded, at the discretion of the Board, to former members of the Executive who have made significant contributions to the development of EEUK.
