       The Keele approach

 Two layers of protocols:
   Layer 1 – Institutional (what we can
    include)
   Layer 2 – Specific (how we include it)




                                             5
           Layer 1 Protocols

1. The activity is verifiable and is endorsed by the University.
2. The opportunity to undertake the activity is open to all
   students, in principle.
3. Information included is presented factually, not opinion-
   based.
4. The activity/outcome is a direct part of the academic
   programme.
5. The role/activity/outcome is defined by regulation.
6. The role/activity/position supports a University process,
   which is normally determined by election (student) or
   University nomination.
7. The activity/role supports wider University policy and
   strategy.

                                                                   6
        Layer 2 Protocols (example)

  society.
 The position must be recorded in the approved
  version of the Committee’s constitution.
 The post-holder must have been elected to the
  post.
