  • Lucy Mercer-Mapstone
  • Aimee Parker
  • An additional 29 student partners and 22 staff partners

This initiative consisted of 11 Students as Partners pilot projects trialling different aspects of student-staff partnerships in the UQ context. Across these projects, 29 student fellows and 22 staff worked in partnership to design and inform various aspects of student-staff partnerships.

The findings of this initiative informed a streamlined approach to student partnership across UQ, facilitated through Student Services as Student-Staff Partnerships.

By taking part in these activities, students will be more engaged in University processes and curriculum design, leading to increased student satisfaction.
