One of the highlights in the UCL public engagement year is the Provost's Public Engagement Awards. These awards celebrate the fantastic work that UCL's staff and students’ contributions to the local community and further afield through collaborative engagement.
Public engagement for the purposes of these public engagement awards is characterised by being based in UCL research, teaching, or learning. These awards particularly reward work that reflect UCL’s distinctive approach to public engagement, characterised by:
- A focus on collaborative models of engagement;
- Involvement of diverse public groups, particularly those whose voices are heard less often;
A spirit of experimentation from which learning can emerge.
Nominations for 2019/20 will open on Monday 9 December. We are going to be changing categories this year so keep an eye out and check the new guidance then.
