Framework for Student Engagement through Partnership

Student engagement describes the extent to which students are motivated, passionate and curious about their programme of study, their higher education community and their immediate surroundings. Student engagement through partnership prioritises the active involvement of students in shaping the curriculum, community and environment, recognising them as key stakeholders in the learning process.

Developing a culture of engagement through partnership will be most effective where educators, professional services, estates, decision-makers and students all understand and appreciate the value of partnership.

The framework is designed to be of value to a broad audience and can be particularly beneficial in supporting stakeholders seeking to establish partnership approaches across areas of activity that affect the student experience.

The framework is part of the Essential Frameworks for Enhancing Student Success series.

Do you want to develop student partnerships at your institution?

A culture of partnership across an institution can not only help students develop their sense of belonging to an institution, it also shows students that their views, opinions and experiences matter to the institution. We can work with you, through our four-stage approach, to develop your policies and practices to promote collaboration with students, helping to form vibrant and diverse learning experiences that enhance student and institutional success.
