Student Engagement and the REACT project
Student Engagement has come to mean many things to many people. It has been linked to student participation, involvement, commitment, effort and motivation; to Student Unions and to academic study; to developing new relationships between staff and students.

The REACT project narrowed the focus of Student Engagement to look closely at three specific student-partnership initiatives designed to support the academic growth of students and create collaboration beyond at a further twelve Universities.

This website represents the culmination of the REACT initiative. It offers case studies, tools and stories associated with the REACT programme, along with individual pages for each of the Universities involved.
