The AMOSSHE national conference 2018 explores future directions for Student Services in higher education: how we can enable student success by being proactive, collaborative, and far-sighted.
During the 25 years since AMOSSHE was founded, the Student Services mission has moved to the heart of university life. Key approaches now include considering the whole student experience, anticipating change, and developing inclusive, connected learning communities that enhance as well as support student achievement. This conference is an opportunity to explore how Student Services can develop influence, innovations and strategies to shape futures.
The AMOSSHE national conference is the largest annual gathering of Student Services leaders in the UK higher education sector, and the keystone of AMOSSHE’s continuing professional development offering.
The conference takes place between Wednesday 4 July and Friday 6 July 2018 at the Hilton Liverpool City Centre hotel in Liverpool, England.
We want your proposals for informative and stimulating workshops or presentations that will engage delegates and contribute to everyone’s understanding and professional development. The deadline to submit a session proposal is 17:00 on Friday 16 February 2018.
