About this Book Chapter:

Student-staff partnership is a growing field within higher education. As a theory and practice aimed at more equitable power sharing between students and staff, it is often underpinned by a desire to redress inequities in the academy. As feminists, women, and students engaging in partnership, we saw connections between feminism and equity in the partnership field. This manifesto lays out aspirational goals we hold for the field of partnership, setting agendas and making calls to action based on concepts drawn and adapted from feminist theorists, namely, the process of unlearning hierarchy and a need to more deeply embrace relational diversity.
