**This event is now fully booked, but you can still register for our waitlist **

The event coincides with the launch of our new strategy – ‘A place where all students belong: Access and student success strategy 2025'

The event is aimed particularly at colleagues in student-facing roles and it will provide clarity on our future direction for access and student success – our targets, our ambitions and how we can all play a part.

It will also look at what we mean when we use the terms 'access' and 'student success', and how you can help students to feel a part of our community and realise their full potential.

Participants will hear from Professor Simone Buitendijk (Vice-Chancellor) and Louise Banahene (Director of Educational Engagement). Also contributing will be people involved in access and student success across the University community, including:

  • Professor Stephen Scott (Equality Policy Unit)
  • Professor Jacqueline Stevenson (Lifelong Learning Centre)
  • Professor Luke Windsor (Doctoral College)
  • Laila Fletcher, Equality & Diversity Officer (Leeds University Union)

The event will be chaired by Professor Andrew Thorpe, Executive Dean, Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures and there will be a chance to ask questions.

Register for the waitlist and we’ll email you if a space becomes available

This event is on Friday 27 November, 1.15 – 2.15pm
