History JISC was established on 1 April 1993 under the terms of letters of guidance from the Secretaries of State to the newly-established Higher Education Funding Councils for England (Higher Education Funding Council for England), Scotland (Scottish Funding Council) and Wales (Higher Education Funding Council for Wales), inviting them to establish a Joint Committee to deal with networking and specialist information services. JISC was to provide national vision and leadership for the benefit of the entire Higher Education sector. The organisation inherited the functions of the Information Systems Committee (ISC) and the Computer Board, which had served universities. An initial challenge was to support a much larger community of institutions, including the ex-polytechnics (New universities#Post-1992 universities that are former polytechnics) and higher education colleges (New universities#Post-1992 universities that are not former polytechnics). A review of JISC's work, commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England under the chairmanship of Professor Sir Alan Wilson (Alan Wilson (academic)), was published in February 2011. One of the principal findings of the review was that there is no comparable body to JISC within the UK, and internationally its reputation is outstanding as a strategic leader and partner. The Review concluded that, "JISC is an invaluable national resource which has evolved in response to increasing demands over 20 years". However, the Review also recommended that, due to the breadth and complexity of JISC's activity, its structure, processes, projects, programmes and governance need to be simplified and reshaped: " i n an era of financial constraint, it is necessary to refocus activities around clearer priorities, and to ensure JISC operates with a sustainable financial model".

Gazette '', ''Victoria News'' Prior to joining Okanagan College, Lent taught at the University of Regina, Saskatchewan, and Notre Dame University College in Nelson, British Columbia. Starting in 1979, he taught creative writing and literature courses at Okanagan College in Vernon, British Columbia. He retired from the position of Dean, North Okanagan Region, Okanagan College, in April 2011. He was influential in the creation of the Ryga Award for Social

Responsibility in Canadian Literature, http: georgerygaaward.org ''Ryga a Journal of Provocations'', the Mackie Lecture and Reading Series, the Kalamalka Press, ''KIdsWWwrite'' (a creative writing ezine) and the KIWW Digital Archives, as well as several radio programs and newsprint collaborations such as ''The Kalamalka Chronicles''. John Lent’s participation in and authoring of the opening chapter of the, initially, serialised ''Kalamalka Chronicles'', a community writing project initiated by ''The Sun Review'' newspaper and the Kalamalka Institute for Working Writers, emphasises the degree to which he experiments with narrative form and authorship. In this instance, the characters and their opening maneuvers were controlled by Lent, then re-authored and re-plotted by eight other writers. That the ‘contest’ was quite lively and that the newspaper folded after the publication of chapter nine is, perhaps, indicative of a community of writers rather than readers. In addition to these services to the literary arts and promotion of quality writing, Lent has engendered careers in writing through his work as a teacher and as an editor. He was a writer in residence at Sage Hill, Saskatchewan from 2009-2011. Hartig, Jean. "Sage Hill Writing Experience."
