Global Citizenship Programme for UCL undergraduates: Town Hall meeting
24 May 2012
The Vice-Provost (Education) has called a meeting to discuss helping students make better use of their time after the summer examinations by providing a distinctly 'UCL' programme for undergraduates.
The Council White Paper commits UCL to making better use of the post-examinations period for teaching. The Vice-Provost (Education) is therefore proposing to develop a distinctively 'UCL' programme for undergraduates, to run at the end of each teaching year, which will bring together elements of the Grand Challenges, opportunities for volunteering and enterprise activity, and support with careers planning. This will bring us in line with practice in many overseas universities, and will allow us to refine a model which is also being adopted by some of our competitors in the UK. Our aim is to pilot the programme in 2012-13.
A Town Hall meeting is planned for 25 June to outline what is being planned, to collect feedback from the UCL community, and to discuss how such a programme might be developed and implemented. We recognise that the post-examinations period involves a great deal of work for academic staff, and our proposals take into account the need to ensure that staff are not asked to take on additional work during this time.
All are welcome, and Heads of Departments are particularly strongly encouraged to ensure that their department is represented.
The meeting will take place on 25 June 2012 at 4.30pm in Roberts 106.
