In this case study session Mark Ames (Director of Student Services) and Alicia O’Grady (Director of External Relations) from the University of Bristol discuss their responses to and learning from 2018's high profile media attention, which focused on student deaths at the university. Explore how the Student Services and External Relations teams worked together in a climate of crisis, to ensure that responses to the media were aligned, and that students, their families, and other stakeholders were informed and supported. The session features opportunities for 'Chatham House rule' Q&A to help you learn from Mark and Alicia's experiences.
