An important publication was launched in late February 2022. The Special Issue of the All Ireland Journal of Higher Education (AISHE), entitled Student Engagement and Partnership in Irish Higher Education, brought together an impressive collection of editorials, articles, reflections, journeys, case studies and rapid responses. This Special Issue was co-edited by NStEP and AISHE.


The Special Issue featured an editorial by the Steering Group (Nic Fhlannchadha, Hackett... Trench Bowles, 2022). The Steering Group members were proud to feature in this important publication and congratulate all of those involved.
