Maynooth Students’ Union and Maynooth University have agreed to participate in the National Student Engagement Programme (NStEP). NStEP is a collaborative initiative established by the Union of Students in Ireland (USI), the Higher Education Authority (HEA) and Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI). The National Student Engagement Programme works with 23 Higher Education Institutions, including Maynooth, to develop student capabilities and institutional capacity to enhance student engagement at all levels across the higher education system.
The programme aims to:
- Develop student capabilities to engage in quality enhancement and assurance activities at all levels of the higher education system.
- Support institutions in developing processes and activities which support/facilitate the meaningful engagement of students.
- Strengthen the value placed on student engagement across Ireland and develop tools and resources to support a common understanding and build effective practice.
As part of the roll out of the NStEP Programme at Maynooth University, we will host an Institutional Analysis Day. This will involve a daylong workshop, facilitated by NStEP and sparqs (Student Partnerships in Quality Scotland), to identify themes and priorities, which are suitable for a partnership approach in Maynooth University.
Our Institutional Analysis will take place on Wednesday, February 21st 2018.
