Forging an engaging academic community, and building effective relationships with colleagues, students, and external stakeholders, are key aspects of the work of Student Services. To help Student Services leaders and practitioners engage with these communities, AMOSSHE is hosting a conference to explore how we can work with institutional colleagues and stakeholders to create effective relationships, and how we can create engaging communities for our students that enhance their learning experience and promote retention and success.

Engaging Communities, the AMOSSHE winter conference 2017, takes place on 17 February in Manchester, featuring a range of AMOSSHE member-led sessions showcasing innovative practice and strategy, as well as inspiring keynote presentations from key voices in the sector.

Our first confirmed keynote is Sara Fernandez (Executive Director, Student Hubs). Student Hubs supports students to tackle social challenges, learn about issues and connect with each other. Their work includes supporting student leaders in UK universities to learn, connect and do something to tackle social issues, through volunteering, skilled placements, project incubation and critical engagement events.

AMOSSHE member-led sessions confirmed so far include:

  • How engaged is your student community? (Anglia Ruskin University)
  • King’s Community Ambassadors: building a sense of belonging and community through student support and engagement (King’s College London)
  • Living and learning: supporting extra-curricular learning in university accommodation (University of Sheffield)
  • Supporting staff to support students: enabling our students to realise and reach their full potential (University of Southampton)
