Are you interested in joining the leadership committee for the largest global network for Student Engagement? We have a number of exciting vacancies on our RAISE committee!
We are delighted to open the call for self-nominations for the RAISE Committee Member Vacancies. The elections will take place during the online RAISE Conference, 1-2 September 2021. The RAISE Committee is responsible for the management and oversight of all RAISE activities including the annual conference, Special Interest Groups, reading groups and collaborating with other sector organisations to advance student engagement.
The Committee normally meets at least three times per year. Successful applicants will be expected to attend the next 3 committee meetings (dates TBC but will likely take place during November 2021, January, April and July 2022) as well as our annual conference in Lincoln on 7-8th September 2022. Meetings may be held in person or by electronic means (including MS Teams or e-mail), but at least two meetings a year will be held in person (pandemics allowing!) and one may be held at the same time as the AGM during the annual conference. RAISE will cover the travel expenses and conference fee for student committee members.
Applicants should be aware that the RAISE Committee and positions operate on a voluntary basis and successful applicants will be expected to commit approximately 100 hours a year.
The RAISE Committee would benefit from a diversity of backgrounds, both in person and in profession. In particular, we welcome nominations from those from Black, Asian and other ethnic minority backgrounds as they are currently under-represented on the committee.
