The Universities UK (UUK) taskforce to address violence against women, harassment and hate crime affecting students, has developed recommendations for higher education providers to help implement approaches to these issues. The recommendations focus on challenging violence against women in higher education, and responding to student concerns. This event for Student Services professionals explores how to implement these recommendations in the context of your institution, through Student Services strategy and practice.
AMOSSHE members can find the event resources here:
The event will involve thinking about the UUK recommendations in a practical way, as well as reviewing existing good practice and approaches. You will also have the opportunity to discuss ideas with your Student Services peers to explore in more detail and understand what the recommendations mean for you and your institution.
This event deals with sensitive and potentially distressing topics. You will work with other delegates to discuss sample case studies and how you might respond to the situations described in a professional manner. Please consider the nature of these challenging issues before you decide to attend.
