‘Student engagement in volunteering’: building links between the institution, its students, and the wider community

Sam Jenkins


This article is based on my presentation at the 2019 Change Agent Network Conference at the Open University. Drawing on successful projects at the University of Winchester, my initiatives as Volunteering and Community Officer at Winchester Student Union, and external research, I will explore factors which can help increase student engagement in volunteering, fundraising and social action. My aim is to reinforce the notion that participating in these activities constitutes an important part of the overall student experience, alongside academic learning and teaching.
