As mentioned at our conference last week, we are extremely grateful to Dr Lucy Easthope for reviewing and updating our very own Resilience Guide for HEI’s. The Guide has been updated and includes two new chapters, has references to mental health, housing, emerging challenges and more recent case studies. In this world of challenges both on and off campus, the Guide provides essential information for HE Managers, who have responsibilities for emergency planning, response and management. It provides you with advice, best practice, guidance and templates for assisting in your own plan writing. There are also references to follow for further information. Remember the best advice from Lucy, “Test your Plans!”
Even if you have read the previous versions, all members are encouraged to download the new version and read it again. Print a copy off and present your Vice Chancellor with their own personal copy (warning – it is 217 pages)! You can download the new Guide from the website Members Area / Resources / Emergencies and Resilience folder.
The AUCSO Resilience course – ‘An introduction to Resilience in Higher Education’, will be run again this summer. Watch out for the announcement of dates and venue.
