On 27th and 28th of April ENOHE members Jorge Pereira, Student Ombudsman at University of Beira Interior, and Thomas Rypka, Austrian Student Ombudsperson Office, attended the event STUPS – Students Participation Without Borders – promoted by a European consortium, in Brussels, Belgium.
According to STUPS, student participation is currently far from the desired standards both in terms of quantity and quality, and the engagement of underrepresented and disadvantaged groups of students is almost non-existent. In order to promote good governance and inclusion, these challenges need to be addressed forthwith at the institutional, national and European level.
The STUPS project aims to have a world students’ participation observatory by 2023 that will contribute to understand students’ participation in higher education at a global level and share good practices among higher education institutions at local, national and European level.
