Symposium: HEI profiling and student service organisations

What role do student service and advice offers play in strategic planning at German HEIs? How can student service organisations support HEIs in their strategies and profile development? These are the questions the CHE – Centre for Higher Education and the German National Association for Student Affairs (Deutsches Studentenwerk) will be discussing at a joint symposium on 29 and 30 November 2011 in Berlin.

What role do student service and advice offers play in strategic planning at German HEIs? How can student service organisations support HEIs in their strategies and profile development?
These are the questions the CHE – Centre for Higher Education and the German National Association for Student Affairs (Deutsches Studentenwerk) will be discussing at a joint symposium on 29 and 30 November 2011 in Berlin.

The symposium “HEI profiling and student service organisations” will focus on four main themes presented in modules:

  • The first module deals with the different types of academic profiling and the contribution student service organisations make to it. For example, what types of service and advice offers support the profile of an HEI with an excellent record in research? How can student service organisations promote specific academic profiles despite their cross-university approach?


  • The second focus is on organising co-operation on an operational level, for example by integrating student service organisations in the strategic processes of HEIs. The aim is to identify success factors in every day co-operation in practice.


  • The third theme tackles the consequences of a changing student body on the academic and supplementary offers of HEIs. The focus will be on two target groups, namely working students and those on further education programmes, and vocationally qualified students, i.e. those without school leaving degrees qualifying them for entry into higher education institutions. Co-operation between HEIs and student service organisations is also required here.


  • The final module of the symposium deals with the question of how HEIs and student service organisations can tailor their service and advice offers to specific target groups both jointly and in a co-ordinated manner. The main target groups in focus will be international students, students with children and young students.


    Well-known lecturers will be offering up inspiring ideas that will subsequently be discussed further in a plenary debate. The presentation of the findings of an online interview among HEI and student service organisation managers as well as short video clips will provide additional content. A spontaneous student jury will contribute student perspectives and assessments to the debate.

    The symposium starts on 29 November 2011 at 1pm, and ends on 30 November 2011 at 1.30pm. It will take place at the dbb-Forum, Friedrichstraße 169/170, 10117 Berlin, and costs 145 euros per person.

    The symposium will address HEIs and student service organisations, policymakers at both regional and national level, academic organisations and the media. The symposium will be held in German.
