Responsible Business

By today’s definition, good business governance requires planning for long term viability and taking responsibility for the effects our business decisions make on our global and local environments, communities and economies.

Universities are seen to be leading organisations, operating as best practice institutions in education, research and good governance.

Tertiary institutions also provide the perfect environment and opportunities for students to flex their consumer voices and demand that their institutions meet globally aligned trends and expectations for sustainable goals and outcomes.

Student Experience Network members are an important interface between the tertiary students experience on campus and the wider world. Our members are not only there to engage and support students on campus.  They provide vital services that underpin a student’s day-to-day requirements on campus, while maintaining awareness of minimising impacts.

The Student Experience Network Sustainability Assessment  (SENSA)

Student Experience Network’s most successful achievement in supporting good governance and ethical, sustainable procurement is SENSA – a comprehensive, best practice, vendor profiling tool.

SENSA is a profiling survey aimed to identify and promote companies striving for a fair and ethical balance between all aspects of the triple bottom line – People, Planet, Profit. Highlighting the level of corporate responsibility promoted by our partner contract holders and suppliers. The program also supported the Sustainable Procurement ISO20400 guidelines.

SUPPLIERS – All of our partners and suppliers are required to register and complete the SENSA.

MEMBERS – Members of Student Experience Network are able to access the SENSA library for details on suppliers they wished to partner with.
