Welcome from your host Students’ Union. The Students’ Union at Royal Holloway, University of London (SURHUL) would like to extend a warm welcome to everyone in attendance at AMSU Conference 2010 including keynote and guest speakers, delegates, exhibitors and support staff. We are delighted that you are able to join us at Royal Holloway and we are also very honoured to host this important event within our sector. Many of the SURHUL staff have attended AMSU events over the years and it is a real pleasure for us to ‘return the favour’ in our magnificent campus environment. We have been working with the Conference Planning Team over the past twelve months to help ensure an enriching and rewarding experience for our conference guests. Our aim has always been to build on the previous high standards from earlier years and we have a truly amazing range of keynote speakers, a lively social programme, participation from key specialist groupings and the largest educational programme AMSU Conference has ever seen. We truly hope that this will be the first of many visits to Royal Holloway for you all, but for now we wish each and every one of you an enjoyable and inspiring stay with us.

James Pidgeon Students’ Union President Sean O’Donnell Students’ Union General Manager

Welcome from trustees This will be a defining year for the future of AMSU (whatever happens at the AGM) and Conference 2010 is set to match that in its quality and content. This year promises to deliver more sessions than in previous years, high profile speakers and a good quality social programme. We are really pleased to see so many of the AMSU groups working with conference to provide their own sessions, helping to make this event the showcase and climax of the AMSU year. What our members hold dear about AMSU (as the Trustees have confirmed this year) is: networking, exploring new concepts for the movement, helping SU professionals to be prepared for the future and individual development through professional training and peer support. All of these are embodied in this year’s conference. Welcome to conference and please make the most of your time here.

Brief history of Royal Holloway University of London Royal Holloway College, originally a women-only college, was founded by the Victorian entrepreneur Thomas Holloway in 1879. The Founder’s Building was designed by William Henry Crossland and inspired by the Château de Chambord in the Loire Valley, France. Now Grade I listed, it was officially opened in 1886 by Queen Victoria. October 1887 saw the arrival of the first 28 students at Royal Holloway College. It later became a constituent of the University of London in 1900, as did Bedford College. Almost 100 years later, Royal Holloway merged with Bedford College, another pioneering institution founded in 1849 by Elizabeth Jesser Reid and with which Royal Holloway College would eventually merge. Elizabeth Jesser Reid and Thomas Holloway both played crucial roles in the development of equality in education through the creation of two colleges for women, Bedford College in London, and the Royal Holloway College in Surrey. Their foresight and philanthropy have ensured opportunities for many generations of students. Thomas Holloway was a self-made multi-millionaire whose fortune had been made in patent medicines. He founded Royal Holloway College I after initiating a public debate inviting suggestions as to ‘How best to spend a quarter of a million or more’. It was his wife Jane who suggested a college for women as the means by which Holloway’s money might effect ‘the greatest public good’. Founders Building epitomises the wealth, optimism and spirit of philanthropy so characteristic of the Victorian age. It continues to provide a home for the Royal Holloway Collection - a Picture Gallery of Victorian art that was the final touch to Holloway’s generous endowment. Both Bedford and Royal Holloway admitted male undergraduates for the first time in 1965, but their

commitment to women’s education remained. The newly merged Royal Holloway and Bedford New College was inaugurated in 1986 by Her Majesty The Queen as a ceremony in the College Chapel. The merger provided more academic diversity and strength. It also preserved the pursuit of innovation and excellence which characterised the Founders of the two parent colleges. The land has also been put to productive use as a source of food during the College’s history. Pigs, kitchen gardens, asparagus and potato patches were kept down where the International and Student Union Buildings are now. However, there were attempts to sustain the Victorian social hierarchy within the workplace. The tunnel that runs from underneath the Founder’s building to the Boiler House was built so that the delicate sensibilities of the girls would not be upset by the sight of menservants and their carts.

“I was told that I must have pyjamas by Gladys (fellow student), who told me that if you come down the fire-escape you come down in a canvas chute, and that if you came down with a nightie over your head it would be very undignified! So that was one of the reasons why we wore pyjamas.” - Interview with Ruth Miller, RHC student 1955-62 RHC RF/132/6

Only female staff were allowed to reside at the College, with male staff having to live off campus. Students were not allowed to have men in their rooms without a chaperone. On the 1960s female students were still forbidden to be away for the College at night without permission. This posed a dilemma for some students.....

“Dear Lady Holloway, I am going out with a boy who loves long car rides so that I invariably return to College later than 12.55 and consequently have to climb in through a pantry window. Unfortunately I keep on laddering my stockings! Can you suggest a cure?” - Chateau, vol.1, no.3, 7th March 1968 RHC RF/200/48

“They [men] ran over the buildings like mad things. They got into every nook and cranny. We spent a fortune on locks that year to stop them running about.” Richard Hardy, Secretary to the Governors from 1963 RHC RF/132/5

Over its storied history, it has evolved to the knowledgebased association for campus community builders.

Mission statement: The Association of College Unions International supports its members in the development of community through education, advocacy, and the delivery of services. Core values: ACUI’s essential and enduring tenets are core values - a small set of timeless, guiding principles that do not require external justification.

The HTA is a watchdog that protects public confidence by licensing organisations that store and use human tissue for purposes such as research, patient treatment, post-mortem examination, teaching, and public exhibitions. She recently retired from her role as CEO of Universities UK, where she was responsible for representing the interests of 130 universities to government, the media, the public, internationally and was accountable for an annual budget of £6 million. In this role she restructured and rebranded the organisation with the desire to make Universities UK the collective voice of all UK universities. Prior to taking up this challenging role in 1995, Baroness Warwick’s career was in the public sector and education, spending almost a decade as the CEO of the Association of University Teachers (AUT). She served several years as Chair of VSO covering the period of successful restructuring. Baroness Warwick makes regular media appearances and is widely quoted for her views.

Amnesty International TBC: Monday 6.20pm Mike Johnson Monday 3.30pm Mike Johnson is a leading commentator, consultant and researcher on the Future of Work, Talent Management, Corporate Communications and How to Work as an Independent.

He has written several series of world-of-work studies for both The Economist and the Financial Times, as well as over 100 global and Europe-wide studies for international corporations and institutions. Recent books include Winning the People Wars and Talent Magnet, both for the Financial Times, The New Rules of Engagement and The Independent Consultant’s Survival Guide for the CIPD. His latest book Starting up on Your Own: How to Succeed as an Independent Consultant or Freelance was published in November 2009 by the Financial Times. Mike is the founder of the FutureWork Forum, an independent, international think-tank and consulting network of business professionals. Founded in 2003, FutureWork Forum works with CEOs and HR Directors to help them anticipate the future of work.

Amnesty International was founded on the belief in the power of ordinary people to make extraordinary change. It campaigns on a wide range of human rights issues including: violence against women, arms trade, death penalty, advocating an adequate standard of living for refugees, and dealing with the human rights issues surrounding terrorism and security. ‘’We have over 2.8 million members, supporters and subscribers in more than 150 countries and territories actively fighting for human rights. We also have over 7,800 local, youth, specialist and professional groups that meet in hundreds of communities across the world’’. Those who support Amnesty International come from many faiths, cultures, ages and occupations. And they contribute in different ways: some write to governments; some campaign in the streets; some donate money. All adds up to massive public pressure to protect human beings everywhere. Because of this pressure, prisoners of conscience have been released. Death sentences have been commuted. Torturers have been brought to justice. Governments have been persuaded to change their laws and practices. We are ordinary people from across the world standing up for humanity and human rights. Our purpose is to protect individuals wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied.
