With Wendy Sammels, Think Forward
“University drop-out rates in UK rise for third successive year”.
For the past six months Wendy has been working on a fast track transformational student support project at the University of Surrey. With wellbeing and student retention high on the agenda, the team have worked closely with the university to challenge the status quo. Engaging with executive board and key stakeholders from a wide breadth of departments across the university they are delivering an exciting new support experience to students.
Wendy looks forward to sharing the approach and outcomes of this project at this year’s conference and will be joined for questions by Lucy Evans, Chief Student Officer at the University of Surrey.
