The conference program includes the following panels and topics:
What can student services do to socially support students? What are the examples for innovation and flexible solutions to changing political, economic, social and cultural contexts. And what kind of new thinking is therefore required?
The conference aims to take on new angles on how student services remain ahead of rapidly changing contexts in a rapidly changing world.
