Student Administration and Services Forum 2019

Resilience & belonging

With rapid and significant change occurring every day in the tertiary education sector, fostering a sense of belonging and resilience is the key to the success of the change management process. 'Resilience' enables people to adapt effectively under conditions of strain and change while 'belonging' draws people together to create communities and productive synergy.

The 2019 Student Administration and Services (SAS) forum focuses on this twin theme of resilience and belonging in response to change in higher education sector and beyond.

The Forum is a chance to connect with your peers to motivate change, hear engaging presentations on hot topics, and discuss your profession and your university.

Presentations from across the sector will share insight into the key factors that promote the belonging and resilience in a university context such as diversity, inclusion, gender equality, well-being, change management and synergy. 

The 2019 Forum will take place on 18 and 19 September in Finkel lecture theatre in the John Curtin School of Medical Research.

About the Forum

The Student Administration & Services (SAS) Forum is an annual two-day event, held in September that brings together student administrators and service providers from across The Australian National University (ANU), as well as students and guests from other tertiary institutions. The aim is to provide staff and service providers with an opportunity to network and share in a professional development event that they may not otherwise get the opportunity to do so.

The Forum provides a platform for professionals in the tertiary education sector to present on innovations in their area, about their work, to share knowledge amongst colleagues. The Forum also engages keynote speakers to address the attendees, in order to bring fresh ideas and valuable insight.
