AMOSSHE Insight: responding to sexual misconduct disclosures
This AMOSSHE-funded project, undertaken by the University of Liverpool and partners, researches students’ expectations of their universities about how they should respond to reports and disclosures of sexual misconduct.
Each year AMOSSHE commissions a range of small projects from member organisations as part of AMOSSHE Insight. The purpose of AMOSSHE Insight is to develop and share insights for the benefit of all members. Here are the reports from the completed projects. You can find out about the projects currently underway here: AMOSSHE projects.
Each year AMOSSHE surveys its membership to gather information about the scale and scope of Student Services in UK higher education. Members can use the data for benchmarking and comparison. In addition, AMOSSHE surveys members to measure AMOSSHE's effectiveness as an organisation for its members and the wider sector.
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.
