How can we make services accessible to all students?

How can Student Services more effectively engage students from different racial, cultural and minority groups, so that these students feel comfortable and included when accessing services?

AMOSSHE is hosting a continuing professional development day to tackle this question: "My" Student Services: making services accessible for all students takes place on 2 March 2018 at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow.

Consider how to design your services to account for competing equalities priorities, and how to recognise and correct unconscious biases that impact your initiatives and staff attitudes. Workshop leaders at the event include:

  • Marianne Lemond (Student Experience and Equalities Manager) and Jo Tomlinson (Counselling and Wellbeing Manager, University of Brighton) exploring unconscious bias training for professional and academic staff, and students.
  • Jess Moody (Senior Policy Adviser, Equality Challenge Unit) discussing how to ensure that students of different faiths and cultures feel comfortable accessing your services, and feel that services are safe spaces for them.
  • Rotimi Akinsete (Director of Wellbeing, University of Surrey) exploring how to identify student groups who are not accessing services, the conscious or unconscious barriers that deter them, and designing more inclusive and engaging services.
