Looking ahead and breaking boundaries

The 2015/16 academic year has already gotten off to a busy start for AMOSSHE – with big developments in the UK higher education sector, we’re working harder than ever to help our members tackle challenges and make the most of opportunities.

To guide our work and set our direction, the AMOSSHE Executive Committee has made a clear statement of AMOSSHE’s values, as well as our strategy for 2015 to 2018. You can read an overview in our autumn bulletin.

Bulletin-autumnThe bulletin also contains an introduction to our new Executive members elected in July, so that you can find out more about some of the people leading our professional association.

There’s also a summary of our recent Student Services research projects, carried out by AMOSSHE members earlier in 2015.

Continuing professional development is essential for Student Services professionals to stay up to date with good practice and approaches to challenging issues. Our autumn bulletin contains details of our recent event about tackling sexual harassment and violence on campus.

More professional development opportunities are on their way too, including two conferences:

  • Our winter conference Finding the Balance explores all aspects of duty of care to students, to help Student Services find the right balance between legal duties to support and enable student success, and enhancing the student experience efficiently and effectively.
  • Our national conference next summer takes the theme Breaking Boundaries. The event aims to inspire Student Services leaders to reach beyond the boundaries: explore new approaches, develop current success, consider international perspectives, and discover new potential as we work to break down barriers and develop student success without boundaries.
