The article presents Bishop Grosseteste University’s (BGU) experience of introducing and embedding an innovative whole-University student engagement initiative into a small, traditional, University. The article describes the development of an institutional wide ‘students creating change’ scheme where staff and students were coached and supported to research and create change to the learning opportunities and experiences for students. The scheme also includes the development of a ‘students creating change’ framework, designed to identify and embed institutional enhancement in student representation, ensure that the Learning, Teaching, and Assessment Strategy is meeting the needs of students, and embed student engagement as a key part of the student experience. The article highlights the challenges, benefits, lessons learned and approaches to gaining the support and participation of the Students’ Union, student body, senior University leaders and academic and professional services staff in the process.
