This one day event explores how Student Services can more effectively engage students from different racial, cultural and minority groups, so that these students feel comfortable and included when accessing services. 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.

With support from Unite Students, AMOSSHE has created a resource bank of research, case studies and practical tools to help Student Services professionals develop student and staff resilience to stress, anxiety and similar barriers to achievement and success. Join us to officially launch our Resilience Toolkit and explore the positive, research-based approach to resilience that underpins it.
“Resilience” is a hotly contested concept in higher education, and AMOSSHE takes the stance that this term should not be used to label students with negative judgements or place limitations on their abilities. Instead, AMOSSHE is focusing on what Student Services can do to develop supportive, enabling cultures for students and staff alike – for example, making improvements to physical and social environments, and providing approaches and support to help everyone achieve their potential.
Take the opportunity to engage with the debate about resilience in higher education, explore a positive approach to enabling students and staff to develop resilience, discover resources to help enhance your Student Services work, and find out what your peers from other institutions are doing in this area.
The AMOSSHE national conference 2018 explores future directions for Student Services in higher education: how we can enable student success by being proactive, collaborative, and far-sighted.
