UCL is London’s Global University: we aim to work with partners to achieve fair solutions to global challenges.
Through our Global Engagement Strategy we’ve been collaborating with UCL academics, staff, students and global partners to benefit communities around the world.
Being genuinely globally engaged entails a responsibility to remain true to UCL’s open and inclusive roots and to respond to developments on the world stage. As one small example of that, I’m proud to say that in response to the refugee crisis in Europe, we launched a campaign to raise money for three organisations that support academics and students whose lives, research and education are at risk in their home countries. And in response to the UK’s recent vote to leave the European Union, we committed ourselves to intensifying our efforts to ensure that our diverse partnerships around the world continue to thrive.
The further examples below are a sample of the world-class, creative and interdisciplinary work taking place across UCL, which we are delighted to facilitate and support.
