Three Rivers Conference 2022: Engaging Students: Building Communities

29 June 2022 

The theme of the Three Rivers Conference 2022 is how we engage students in learning through building communities. This includes activities to build communities on campus, through hybrid learning environments, and with communities off campus. The conference will look at how these activities support student engagement, contributing to a sense of belonging, and through this, address issues of retention and widening participation.  

Colleagues and students are all invited to submit an abstract by the 18 April 2022. 

Full details are available on the Three Rivers website.  

Join a working group 

Colleagues are also invited to join a working group that aligns with the conference themes. These groups provide a forum for bringing together and sharing ongoing work from across the five partner universities in the form of strategies, initiatives, and practices that promote effective engagement with the goal of enhancing student retention, progression and/or attainment.
