Student presidents who regularly meet with administrators feel more effective: study

September 25, 2018

A new study out of the US has found that student presidents who regularly meet with campus administrators feel empowered. The authors of the study surveyed 200 student presidents, asking them if their institutions valued their views, whether they felt prepared for their roles, and if they had the opportunity to speak or vote during Board of Governors sessions. One of the study’s respondents stated that training in areas such as budgetary and strategic planning were particularly important. The authors state that they are uncertain whether their findings apply to students in general. Inside Higher Ed
