23 November 2017 17:41 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Building belonging: the role and impact of residences on student success is the theme of the AMOSSHE winter conference 2018. This one day event explores how Student Services and colleagues can develop engaging, supportive residential environments that encourage a sense of belonging and contribute to student success.

AMOSSHE, The Student Services Organisation hosts a winter conference each year, which attracts over a hundred delegates from all over the UK, to share expertise on a specific theme related to the work of Student Services in higher education. Building belonging is an opportunity to build your expertise through three key perspectives, focusing on students who live in university accommodation:

  • Induction and transition – building engagement and a sense of belonging at key transitions in residences.
  • Creating safe, supportive living environments that enhance the residential experience and foster student success.
  • Crisis management – dealing with challenges and crises in residences to ensure that the whole community is supported.

The conference takes place on 9 February 2018 in Bristol. Booking will open soon, but please save the date in the meantime! Watch this space: Building belonging.
