Student-Staff Partnerships is a growing movement and approach for how we engage with one another at the University. Yet it can sometimes be challenging to establish a partnership that aligns with the partnership ethos, and to find the time to enable the process of partnership to flourish.

This workshop will empower students and staff to develop authentic ideas for partnership engagements and develop connections to kick-start the ideation process. Co-facilitators will collaborate with attendees in developing partnership project ideas and provide useful strategies and recommendations to enable attendees to develop creative and high impact partnership project ideas.
