AMOSSHE Futures

AMOSSHE hosts a series of strategy and policy discussions called AMOSSHE Futures (previously Future of Student Life and Services). Each session brings together participants from leading sector bodies and AMOSSHE members. Every meeting has a policy theme, considering the practical implementations of policy drivers for Student Services. Before each event, AMOSSHE members are invited to contribute motions for discussion, which are then explored through roundtable discussion. Following each AMOSSHE Futures event, AMOSSHE publishes a discussion paper outlining some of the main arguments debated and the range of views on them.
