National Community Conference

12 Sep 2014

'Getting It Right' in Higher Education

The Conference ‘Getting It Right - A Community Approach: A National Context’ will be a two-day national event held in Manchester with a view to sharing best practice in relation to off campus activity in relation to the HEI sector.

The conference – at Chancellors Hotel on 18-19 November – will bring together colleagues from universities, local councils and students' unions to examine the latest trends in university and community engagement and provide an opportunity to share best practice with those working in the field.

The conference will build on the discussions held last year to determine how key players are ‘getting it right’ from both a national and international perspective. Sessions will be held to share unique ways to respond to the impacts on housing and neighbourhoods where students have a strong presence. We will discuss how universities, local authorities, residents and other agencies are working together to overcome challenges and ensure that communities benefit from and value their universities. We’re delighted to have some excellent confirmed speakers from across the UK and United States.

The conference will be held at Chancellors Hotel, Chancellors Way, Moseley Road, Fallowfield, Manchester M14 6ZT, on 18-19 November 2014.
