In June 2017, Louise Pollard, 2017 NCSEHE Equity Fellow, and Associate Fellows, Melinda Mann and Nicole Crawford, visited Canadian universities and participated in the Canadian Association of College and University Student Services (CACUSS) annual conference. The trio met with Student Experience staff from a range of institutions across the country. They discussed effective student success strategies; reflected on different approaches to supporting regional and remote students; and considered innovative ways to engage students in most need. During this presentation, the trio’s learnings and reflections will be shared. They will showcase effective initiatives from Canadian universities and explore how the initiatives, their learnings and reflections can shape the way universities in New Zealand and Australia engage and support regional and remote students now and in the future.
