Involvement- Opportunities are provided for students to express individual opinions, perspectives, ideas and concerns on their experiences.
Participation - Opportunities are provided for students to take a more active role in a defined activity. (E.g having students on senate, policy network)
Partnership - Collaboration between the University/Schools and students, involving joint ownership and decision making over both the process and the outcome (E.g student charter) Working with your Institution -
