Meet our new Head of Secretariat: Anna Widegren

Since 16th August, ESU has a new Head of Secretariat: Anna Widegren.

Before joining ESU, Anna was working as Secretary General for Global Campus Alumni – a large global network of human rights professionals comprising over 2000 graduates from 6 regional master’s programmes – where she was responsible for the daily management of the organisation.

However she is not new to the education sector at European level or to Brussels. Anna started out as a young activist in an international organisation dealing with intercultural dialogue and non-formal education. This led her to the European youth policy and non-formal education arena where she eventually started working at the Organising Bureau of European School Student Unions a few years ago. She has an international background: born Swedish, she grew up in Italy and then she completed her studies in Scotland.  Not surprisingly, she feels at home working in an international environment for a European organisation like ESU!

Anna is very excited to have joined the team. During her previous experiences she had already had contact with ESU on several occasions and always had a very good impression of the organisation and its work. She looks forward to meeting the network and to work with you for the future of  higher education in Europe!
She can be contacted at
