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) - this session explores the challenges and achievements of implementing a student engagement dashboard, designed to identify students at risk of under-performing or withdrawal and intervene in a timely manner to offer them interventions to improve their success.
    • King's Community Ambassadors: building a sense of belonging and community through student support and engagement (King’s College London) - this session outlines the structure, objectives and outcomes of a peer-to-peer support scheme developed in collaboration with the Cabinet Office's Behavioural Insights Team, which aims to support first year students in settling into university life through a series of telephone calls delivered at key times of year.
    • Living and learning: supporting extra-curricular learning in university accommodation (University of Sheffield) - this session explores the impact that community-building initiatives in university residences have on students, with a particular focus on genuinely extra-curricular learning opportunities either presented to, or generated by, students.
    • Supporting staff to support students: enabling our students to realise and reach their full potential (University of Southampton) - this session discusses the successes and barriers of introducing a training and communication programme designed to support the knowledge and awareness of staff across the university of the key issues for supporting the student experience.
