All of us have a part to play and everyone can get involved – whether its joining our student forums, engaging in consultation, adopting recommended practice or sharing your experiences and ideas.
Students can get involved in numerous ways:
- Success for All Student Forums - Two forums are held termly, one for Exeter based students and one for Cornwall based students. These panels are made up of student Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity Representatives but are open to all interested students, the forum ensures the student voice is central to the work being carried out across the programme. It meets termly to provide insights, raise issues and feedback on proposed solutions. This is run in conjunction with the Student Union and Guild. If you would like to take part contact Emma Goulding, Access and Participation Coordinator.
- Student representatives – we have student representation on a number of our working groups and also within our College groups. Please get in touch if you want to get involved in a particular working group.
- Research and consultation – we carry out research and consultation throughout the year to support specific initiatives. Look out for invitations to take part in surveys, focus groups and town hall events.
- Student Groups – we engage with a number of student groups and societies about specific areas of our work such as the BME Staff and Student Association, 93% Group and Mature Students’ Group. If your group would like to find out more and get involved, please get in touch.
Staff can get involved in a variety of ways:
- Keep up to date – keep an eye out for our termly newsletter the most recent edition can be found here, and look out for our monthly lunchtime briefings for the latest information and opportunities to get involved.
