The Student Voice

Organisations have policies to set boundaries, provide guidance, and set a tone for their culture.  Higher Education institutions are no different. However, universities are unique in that they have staff, students, and third parties involved as stakeholders.  As students are transient stakeholders, in that they are connected to the organisation for a period of time, they may or may not pay attention to what policies are in place or if there are any gaps.  Universities are also diverse places and one size does not fit all.  In an ever-changing world, universities need to be leaders in driving cultural change and setting a tone for cultural attitudes. 

The student voice is an important voice that needs to be central to any student welfare policies.  If you would like to share your views on existing policies or would like to see development in new policy areas, contact Deirdre Moloney.
