Event description
UCD University for All Seminar 3: From Consultation to Collaboration: The Student Role in Creating a University for All

About this event

To celebrate World Access to Higher Education Day, UCD is delighted to present the third University for All seminar.

“The moment we decide to fulfil something, we can do anything” - Greta Thunberg

This seminar is the third in the series which questions assumptions, challenges narratives and proposes system change to ensure an inclusive educational experience for all. It evokes the power of the student voice as modelled by Greta Thunberg who reminds us that individuals have the power to create systemic change. At the heart of University for All lies the concept that ‘a student is a student’. This seminar will outline how students are shaping the Access agenda and challenging assumptions. We will outline how students have disrupted our thinking and reshaped how we include all students in our university through culture change.

You will hear a number of examples of students as agents of change in the university and we will explore how the role of students has evolved as widening participation in higher education has moved beyond opening doors to enacting systemic change in every aspect of our university. You will learn about how access professionals can create a culture of innovation and creativity to be proactive, rather than reactive, to student challenges, enabling students to be autonomous, independent, effective learners. We will address the questions:

How do we ensure true collaboration and a leadership role for students?

What is the role of Universal Design in ensuring student success?

How can power be shared with students? Legislation, Policy, Practice?
