We recognise that engagement with students, alumni, staff, partners, and the wider University community, in governance and institutional development, greatly enhances the quality of our decision-making. Engagement supports our vision of creating an inclusive university community.
Engagement with our students and potential students, in particular, helps us to remain student-centred and position students as active participants in their learning and study experience.
We have a well-established, participatory model of engagement, which includes for example: representation of students on governing bodies; student surveys and research; market research groups; external academic engagement through appointment of external examiners, critical readers and contributors to the curriculum; staff surveys, and wide consultation on strategy development.
We have adopted a model of engagement that enables us to involve stakeholders in a way that is appropriate to the impact of the changes we are making.
