Since the OfS released their statement of expectations, we’ve seen varying levels of action happening across the sector.
However, despite many positive strides forward, one thing we continue to see is dissonance between universities and student groups.
We sat down to talk to Afua Acheampong (DEI Consultant and Lead at QMUL), Osaro Otobo (Vice Chair, British Youth Council), Daniel Latham SU President, Royal Academy of Music), Spencer Davies (Head of Advice and Response, University of Manchester), and Leri Francis (SU President, University of Surrey) to discuss how effective collaboration with Student Unions can help to improve efficiency and increase student satisfaction.
In this one hour session we challenge the idea of consultation, and discuss what true collaboration looks like. The student voice has always pioneered change in the sector, and collaboration with students is fundamental to create meaningful change, but it must fit into a whole institution approach to change.
But what does that look like? How can we achieve it? What advice do our panelists have? Have a listen, and share your thoughts on social media.
