EUA Webinar: Universities Supporting Social Inclusion

12 January 2017

EUA will hold a webinar on 25 January 2017 to explore how universities can engage in and support social inclusion. It will feature an overview of European trends as well as practical examples and an opportunity for discussion. The deadline to register is 20 January.

EUA_Webinars_Logo_webThe webinar, “Universities Supporting Social Inclusion”, will take place from 14.00 to 15.00 CET and will begin with a general introduction. Maurice Crul from the Free University Amsterdam and Lewis Purser of the Irish Universities Association will discuss social inclusion and higher education in their respective countries.

The topic is relevant as universities are vital in providing social mobility and inclusion at a number of levels. In an increasingly complex society, universities provide high-level skills, thinking and methods that are ever more requested in the labour market. University education is also driving civil participation, innovation and entrepreneurship. At the same time, massification of higher education means that student populations have become more diverse, which requires specific policies for universities. These trends have been emphasised by the influx of refugees.

These topics and more will be discussed at the webinar. Please click here to register. 

EUA is also working to continue its webinar series throughout 2017. On 22 February, EUA will host a webinar on “The future of Erasmus+”. On 28 March, the topic will be “Open Science in universities: implications for research and for doctoral education” and on 26 April EUA will present a webinar on “IEP: What’s it all about?” focusing on the Institutional Evaluation Programme.

Look for more information on these in the weeks and months to come on the EUA events page.
