Conference day 2 started for me at a breakfast networking discussion on international perspectives in Student Services. I am a member of the Executive of the International Association of Student Affairs and Services IASAS – see http://www.iasasonline.org/, a global network for professionals and practitioners who work in student affairs and services. Currently membership of IASAS is free, with the aim of building and strengthening an international student services community. There is much talk of internationalisation in HE – it seems to me a challenge for those of us working in student services is to question whether our practice is sufficiently informed by international exemplars; and the extent to which we learn from the vast array of varying approaches and models for student services across the globe. IASAS is a way into that learning and I encourage you to explore the website and consider becoming a member.
