Student engagement:

providing services or forging partnerships?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In Europe, the focus of student engagement in representation and governance has shifted over time from that of protest to that of service provision (see Klemenčič 2011), with student unions increasingly taking on the role of service provision. This shift has been noted elsewhere (see Luescher‑Mamashela 2010) and associated with the strengthening grip of managerialism and a neoliberal discourse. This erosion of the traditional role of student representation has been contrasted against the ideal of more meaningful engagement of students as partners, and indeed examples of the latter exist. This chapter draws upon research funded by the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education in the United Kingdom into leadership for student engagement in challenging conditions, and explores the costs and benefits of engaging as partners in governance and learning for both student representatives and their institutions.
